Mr. Barna has done some of the best research on trends among Christians, especially the teenage sector. Barna asserts that the Church is in need of real change in order to survive western societies needs, this is true depending on which tradition you are coming from. Most protestant churches are on the decline precisely because they have tried to assimilate with culture. They have tried to become relevant, and have instead lost the meaning of a truly counter-cultural gospel, and Church. The answer lies in the historical and traditional roots of the Church, and it's sacramental life.
