Americans still believe in God, but they are leaving the church in record numbers. Why are the faithful fleeing? Reporter Julia Duin (Washington Times, Houston Chronicle) has collected the research and added insights from interviews with disillusioned followers, as well as from her own story. In this engrossing account of churches in decline, Duin visits numerous churches and explores a number of factors underlying the social shift away from church: irrelevant teaching, the neglect of singles, the marginalization of women, and a lack of authentic spiritual power. She also journeys into house churches and emergent congregations. Duins careful analysis is sure to help church leadersand churchgoers examine how they might better serve their communities and create inviting spiritual homes for people of all kinds.
