Book Summary The great mainstream Christian denominations in America today are on the verge of collapse. Their membership and influence over the past century has dramatically declined due to a loss of mission focus, societal accommodation, and poor decision-making. These cornerstones of American society are quickly losing out in the competition for the American soul to other more energetic and Biblically oriented sects and denominations. Divine Institutions sweepingly describes the meltdown that is occurring within the major denominations in America. Major emphasis is given to explaining the process of growth and decline that denominations undergo and why some continue to grow and others decline. Special attention is given to examining the growth and decline of some of the most significant denominations in America past and present including: Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, Assemblies of God, and Congregationalists. The reader will finish this book with immensely greater insight and appreciation of the dangers facing Christian denominations and churches today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Divine Institutions: The Nature of Denominational Growth and Decline in America?

Book Summary  Oct 19, 2006
The great mainstream Christian denominations in America are experiencing troubled times. Their membership and influence over the past century has been dramatically declining due to a loss of mission focus, societal accommodation, and institutional rigidity. These cornerstones of American society are losing out in the competition for the American soul to other more energetic, biblically faithful sects and denominations.

Divine Institutions explains this phenomenon by examining the process of growth and decline that denominations undergo, including reasons why some continue to expand while others contract. The author provides detailed statistics, contemporary examples, and historical analysis to support his assertions. Six stages starting with gestation and ending in decline are outlined in full detail.

The most influential denominations in America, past and present, are examined and compared including: Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, Assemblies of God, and Congregationalists. Divine Institutions provides the reader a thoughtful and unique understanding of denominational growth and decline in America and the causes for this phenomenon.
