Overview
Before long, many of our Christian congregations will be perceived as cuddly, sentimental creatures who are studied primarily as skeletons in the halls of a museum. The church is in danger of becoming a dinosaur, according to church consultant and provocative author, William Easum. We live in a secular or unchurched world, but the church continues to develop ministries as if the church were in charge of a churched society. If we continuously fail to prepare our message for an anti-Christian world, we will disappear like the dinosaurs. Easum argues that while the substance of the gospel will not be changed as we make this shift, we must change the way that we package and proclaim the substance of the gospel. DANCING WITH DINOSAURS is for persons who are beginning to realize that much of their activity no longer works, and that what they have been taught about ministry no longer makes sense. This book will help pastors and church leaders to *plant culturally relevant congregations *explore first-century Christian communities as the primary model for viable congregations in a hostile world. *challenge complacent or arrogant assumptions of established church leaders.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Too limited a view  Aug 30, 1998
I do agree with William Easum's basic assumptions, that "todays" church is in trouble and can not survive with it's current set of paradigms and practices. What troubles me is the fact the Mr. Easum does not address more current change management processes, the role of seminaries in preparation of clergy, the lack of leadership development practices, nor the antiquated governance systems employed in must church institutes. I would also encourage readers to develop a full understanding of the history of this country, as Mr. Easum also urges, and the period of time from now to the mid-2000's before engaging in a large scale change process. One might read a book entitled the "Fourth Turning".

Though I agree with most of the content, I would have liked to have seen a more systemic approach to the illes that not only effect the church, but all institutions as we know them.

 
Good reading for pastors and laity alike.  Dec 12, 1997
Dancing with Dinosaurs hits the nail on the head on the subject of the problems that the Church is facing and will face in the near future. William Easum displays a clarity of thought and writing that would be more refreshing if the subject mater were less threatening. I found this work to be needed reading in order to, not just sound the alarm but to examine the nature of it as well. On the issues of Easum's solutions I am not fully convinced that his directions are the best. I did find much to think about from this book and would recommend it to pastors and laity alike.
