Item description for The Mainstream Protestant "Decline": The Presbyterian Pattern (Presbyterian Presence: the Twentieth-Century Experience) by Milton J. Coalter, Louis B. Weeks & John M. Mulder...

Overview
Through its examination of American Presbyterianism, this series illuminates patterns of change in mainstream Protestantism and American religious and cultural life in this century.

Publishers Description

The meaning of the declining membership in mainline Protestant denominations has been hotly contested since the 1960s. Drawing on statistical analysis of membership trends, congregational surveys, individual interviews, research on disaffiliation, and case studies of congregations and presbyteries, this volume examines patterns and causes of congregational growth and decline in the Presbyterian church.

Through its examination of American Presbyterianism, the "Presbyterian Presence" series illuminates patterns of change in mainstream Protestantism and American religious and cultural life in the twentieth century.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Mainstream Protestant "Decline": The Presbyterian Pattern (Presbyterian Presence: the Twentieth-Century Experience)?

Unwittingly Revealing  Jan 1, 2009
This is a pretty dry read, but I picked it up after becoming sincerely interested in the almost uniformly downward trajectory of mainline protestant churches in America.

Honestly, the lifeless, clinical, even carnal assessment of their own condition, at least as presented from the Presbyterian vantage point in this particular book, is very telling. I don't think the Holy Spirit was even mentioned.
