What Have We Leaned?: The Best Thinking on Congregational Life (Paperback)
Ministry/Author: Lyle E. Schaller
Pages: About 217
Description: When it comes down to the church and its future, are you a pessimist or an optimist? Declaring himself an unabashed optimist, Lyle Schaller looks back at four decades of religious life in the United States to conclude that the church has far more reasons for hope that for worry as it charts its course into the next forty years. Acknowledging that the roles of parish pastors and leaders have become increasingly complex, he also points out that those leaders can be far better equipped to contribute to congregational vitality and growth than were their predecessors a generation ago. Schaller draws on his own work, as well as that of others, to point to crucial lessons learned in evangelism, multiculturalism, stewardship, worship, communication, and other areas. He concludes that, armed with these tools, the lay and clergy leaders of congregations can be more faithful and more effective in leading their church in the path God has chosen.
