Item Description...
Overview
Is change good or bad? This depends on one's viewpoint and values. Any given change can be threatening if one's values are wedded to the status quo and views the future only through the lens of the past. Or change can be exciting, if one's viewpoint is geared toward the new possibilities that will arise from this change. By looking at several examples of discontinuous change that have occured, Schaller prepares church leaders to orient themselves to the new challenges and opportunities for ministry which will result from the accelerated transition going on around us.

Publishers Description

Change: Is that a good thing, or a bad thing? That depends, says Lyle E. Schaller, on your viewpoint and values. Any given change can be threatening if all your values are wedded to the way things are now, if you can only view the future through the lens of the past. Or it can be exciting, if your viewpoint is geared toward the new possibilities that will arise from this change. By looking at several examples of large-scale, discontinuous change that have occurred over the last ten to thirty years, Schaller prepares church leaders to orient themselves to the new challenges and opportunities for ministry that will result from the accelerated transition going on around us.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Challenging, sometimes disturbing, and invaluable!  Jan 5, 2001
Lyle Schaller has done it once again. His knowledge and insight into contemporary American Christianity are excellent. I am not a pastor but rather a lay person involved in my church and Schaller gives me insights into the world that we all live in, not just clergy. Although many of his observations and predictions are disturbing to me - I'd rather some things were not that way - I think his astute insights accurately reflect the society we live in and the people we are. Schaller has helped me perhaps see things more as they really are instead of as I'd wish them to be; that can only help me and others who read this book work more effectively in God's church.

Although not an overly long or difficult read I recommend taking this book in a slow series of smaller bites to allow one's mind to fully digest the points made within. Schaller serves up a wealth of insight in this book and, even though some points may not be what we're accustomed to tasting, they're all nourishing.

 
Another great book by Schaller for chuch leaders  Apr 3, 2000
Another in a line of good books from Lyle Schaller. The book is full of his trademark questions that are designed to lead a church to transformation. Some of the findings in this book will challenge even the most reluctant to change and their world view. It is a must read for pastors of churches who are wondering what to do next. Schaller paints a picture that all of us need to see.
 
Caution: Book is Powerful!  May 25, 1999
Schaller evaluates societal, political, and generational trends in relation to Christianity and contemporary ministry. His insights are inestimable. The wealth of information in this book is immense. Even if the reader disagrees with one or two of Schaller's numerous evaluations, theories, or predictions, the reader is still indebted to the author for sparking boatloads of novel thought. This book is best read slowly so that one's contemplative juices can churn and bubble into a rich froth. Caution: Book is Powerful!
