The Second Coming of the Church

Front Cover
Thomas Nelson Inc, 1998 - Religion - 223 pages
In this "blueprint for survival," Christian sociologist George Barna evaluates the moral and spiritual decline of society and the corresponding stagnation within the Church. Using hard data, Barna unveils the status quo and argues convincingly that the Church must re-invent itself or face virtual oblivion by the mid-21st century.
