Item Description...
Mainline denominations have seen better times. Their diminishing membership has led some to conclude that these churches have had their day. From his vantage point as a sociologist and preacher, Tony Campolo challenges the assumption that denominations are on the road to extinction. He argues that if they can restructure themselves in relation to the major social changes of recent years and the years ahead, and if the church can recover a balance between evangelism and social action, they just might be able to make a comeback. The book's first section diagnoses the social factors that have created the dire circumstances in which denominations now find themselves; the second section offers prescriptions that might bring a cure to their maladies. Campolo uses his own denomination as a case study of major changes that will have to be made in ministry, organization, and missions if mainline denominations are going to survive and grow.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Insightful analysis  Apr 1, 2000
I have found Tony Campolo, in person and through his books, to be challenging, provocative, and helpful. Can Mainline Denominations Make A comeback? provides an insightful analysis regarding the challenges facing mainline denominations. Mr. Campolo provides an insightful analysis of why mainline denominations are in their present predicament. He argues that mainline denominations are in a cultural lag, specifically as a result of the television age, a culture of narcissism, and the culture wars. I found this analysis to be helpful but Mr. Campolo's recommendations for what mainline denominations can do to get out of their predicament are oversimplified and fail to address the systemic issues. Nevertheless Mr. Campolo's recommendations do serve to get a discussion going and that is Mr. Campolo's intent.
