Can mainline denominations make a comeback?
Their diminishing membership has led some to conclude that these churches have had their day. From his vantage point as a sociologist and preacher, Tony Campolo challenges the assumption that t denominations are on the road to extinction. He argues that if they can restructure themselves in relation to the major social changes of recent years and the years ahead, and if the church can recover a balance between evangelism and social action, they just might be able to make a comeback.
