Item description for The Bold Alternative: Staying in Church in the 21st Century by Gary W. Charles...

Despite the fact that mainline churches have been on a membership decline for the last generation, there are still active and healthy congregations where bright, able, thinking people have decided to stay and serve. In this book, Gary Charles studies these folks to find out what motivates them to remain in the church. Written in a readable, conversational style, this book describes these people--what they believe, how they understand God and faith, and what prompts them to take what has become a counter-cultural stance to stay in church.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Bold Alternative: Staying in Church in the 21st Century?

Interesting Findings on Mainline Church Traditions  Aug 14, 2001
Gary Charles has written a thorough, readable book for people interested in how mainline, traditional churches are doing in a changing spiritual climate. He examines 5 or 6 traditional Presbyterian churches who are doing well in a changing culture. These "successful" churches are in New York, Atlanta, Raleigh, Chicago and San Francisco. As the religious landscape changes, and with it, a new "consumer" mentality among church seekers, Charles investigates churches that have bucked the trend of contemporary-informal-seeker worship services or a more evangelical approach. He wants to know what is going on within the church members of these vital churches. He wants to know why these members come, why they stay, why they worship, what they believe, why they pray and how they live. His findings are pertinent for people who wonder about the future of mainline traditional Presbyterian, Methodist, Episcopal, Methodist, and Lutheran congregations.
