Studying Congregations Review Mar 13, 2006
The book is great. It outlines how to study a congregation with objectivity as the key. It also provides sample surveys, which is great. Good for individuals or for group research.
Helpful book for analyzing congregations May 8, 2001
This book provides a step-by-step process for analyzing a congregation-- its theology, context, culture and identity, dynamics, resources, and leadership. For church leaders looking for ways to figure out what's *really* been happening in a congregation, what its mission might be, and where it might be headed, this is a valuable book!
