Donald P. Smith
Westminister John Knox
ISBN 0-664-25140-4
L - Leadership / LS / Book
In this study of church growth and membership retention, Donald Smith argues that if a church is to survive, it must concentrate on keeping its present members as well as attracting new ones. He interviews people from six hundred churches of various sizes and reviews the causes of membership decline and retention in those churches. He provides evidence that a major problem is membership dropout. He brings together and addresses the assimilation of new members, congregational vitality and church growth, and conflict management and its impact on membership retention. He asserts that churches must meet members' needs in order to attract and keep them.

That today's mainline churches are in crisis is apparent; a solution is less obvious. In this constructive new book E. Stanley Ott points a way ahead, describing twelve shifts in philosophy and practice that can help congregations build need-responsive, disciple-growing churches full of life and vigor.Arguing that the weakness of the church today is a loss of personal spirituality and congregational vitality, Ott challenges local churches to discover how to adjust the style of their ministries to attract new people while encouraging current members. Ott examines the characteristics of "traditional" churches, extols the features of new, "transformational" churches, and lays out proposals to help established congregations make the transition.Well balanced by an honest assessment of the church's present and a positive vision for its future, this book is must reading for pastors, church leaders, and members of every congregation.
10710 Whose Gospel? A Concise Guide to Progressive Protestantism
James A. Forbes, Jr.
The New Press
ISBN 978-1-59558-397-0
EJ - Ethics / EJF / Book
In Whose Gospel?, one of America's greatest living preachers offers a compelling vision of progressive social change. Known as "the preacher's preacher," Dr. James A. Forbes Jr. has tirelessly advocated progressive views on the crucial issues of our time--from poverty, war, and women's equality to racial justice, sexuality, and the environment.

Long a powerful voice for progressive Protestants, Forbes draws on a record of political commitment ranging from the civil rights movement to his stirring address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, in addition to his eighteen years at the helm of New York City's historic Riverside Church. Reflecting the insights of his years as a pastor, a teacher, and an adviser to political leaders, this inspiring manifesto "for the healing of the nations" epitomizes the best thinking of one of the country's foremost religious leaders. Published with a foreword by longtime Riverside Church member Bill Moyers, Whose Gospel? is a pithy and insightful introduction to Forbes's thought and a welcome source of inspiration in this era of hope and change.
