Church Leavers: Faith Journeys Five Years on
Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 2006 - Church membership - 136 pages
"The ground-breaking A Churchless Faith shared lessons learned from groups seeking to work with people who had left churches but continued to pursue journeys of faith. Church Leavers: Faith journeys five years on follows up those originally interviewed. This study investigates whether these individuals have reconnected with church, or whether they have formed or found other meaningful faith groups. It considers their current beliefs and practices, and compares and contrasts their views on prayer, mission, church, human nature, leadership, the Bible and God."--BOOK JACKET.
