Now available in trade paper, Quitting Church explains to church leaders why churches are losing members at a life-threatening rate--and what can be done to reverse the trend. Beginning with the cold, hard facts, Duin then takes readers through a number of issues that influence a person's decision to leave the church, including irrelevancy, hidden suffering, family-centric programming that leaves singles out, impersonal or bland worship services, a lack of biblical literacy, and much more. This eye-opening book is essential reading for pastors, ministry leaders, and churchgoers who wish to bring these disenchanted Christians back into their midst.
