Item description for Gone for Good?: Church-Leaving and Returning in the Twenty-First Century by Leslie J. Francis & Philip Richter...

Gives many first-hand accounts of people leaving the church and their reasons. Following on from an analysis of these reasons, this book begins to develop a realistic pastoral strategy for church growth.

Publishers Description
Following on from their earlier research in Gone but not Forgotten and using a combination of statistical research and first-hand personal accounts, Leslie J. Francis and Philip Richter try to make sense of church-leaving. In a thought-provoking analysis they conclude that some church-leavers are likely to return, if their reasons for leaving are properly understood. 1 5 typical sets of reasons for church-leaving are identified and each section ends with a set of practical recommendations.
This book proposes a new model for the contemporary church - the 'multiplex church'. The authors suggest that churches need to be flexible enough to respond to individual difference if they are to prevent and reverse church leaving.
