Better than the first book Apr 10, 2002
In seminary I had read the previous book by these authors ("Studying Congregations") and found it to be a somewhat dated and not as practical. But this book is great! It really helps clarify the issues for any church facing major decisions like relocation, changing membership, redefined mission, etc.
