Now and then Present and predictable changes The church is not an island You can't pick you birthday Baby boomers: a generation apart Baby busters: generation in the shadows The church and change Spiritual renewal and sociological renewal Range of responses Diagnostic questions Seeing tomorrow today Precise plans or haphazard choices Leaders who lead Time to decide.
A recent survey of America's Protestant churches estimates that 85 percent have plateaued or are declining in membership. The rapid and complex changes transforming Western society have left many churches and ministry organizations teetering between ineffectiveness and extinction. They must learn to meet the challenges of the present and upcoming generation quickly. Leith Anderson has successfully guided his own church through a process of extraordinary growth and change. Out of his experience, research, and presentations has come the material for this book. Dying for Change is not intended to be a simple formula for success. Change is extremely difficult but absolutely necessary.
Leith Anderson is the Senior Pastor of Wooddale Church in Minnesota. Although he is known nationally as an author, speaker, and educator, his first love is the local church and its people. A graduate of Moody Bible Institute, Bradley University, Denver Seminary, and Fuller Theological Seminary, he has written several books including Leadership That Works, a Christianity Today Book Award winner, and Becoming Friends with God. He and his wife, Charleen, live in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
