520    Groundbreaking research based on a national database of 
       over 200,000 churches shows that the overall United States
       population is growing faster than the church. The director
       of the American Church Research Project, Dave Olson, has 
       worked to analyze church attendance, showing that it is 
       virtually unchanged from fifteen years ago while our 
       population has grown by fifty-two million people. What 
       does this mean for you, your church, and the future of 
       Christianity in North America? The American Church in 
       Crisis offers unprecedented access to data that helps you 
       understand the state of the church today. "We live in a 
       world that is post-Christian, postmodern, and multiethnic,
       whether we realize it or not," says the author. This book 
       not only gives a realistic picture that confirms hunches 
       and explodes myths, but it provides insight into how the 
       church must change to reach a new and changed world with 
       the hope of the gospel. Readers will find a richly 
       textured mosaic with optimistic and challenging stories. 
       Charts, diagrams, and worksheets provide church leaders 
       and motivated church members with a stimulating read that 
       will provoke much discussion. Questions for discussion 
       accompany the chapters.
