Our Church was founded in 1951 and is going through many of the same issues as those churches mentioned in this book. I hope and pray that we can over come our trials and traditions as many of these have done. This book is very helpful for to identify our short comings in reaching the lost. Thanks for Comeback Church.

Great Book! I was serving as interim pastor at a church and led a Sunday evening study with the book. The book is neutral and does not advocate or tell churches what to do, but set up the information and results of the churches that followed the principles that were discovered through research. It brought about great discussion, and a need for change with the church family I was with. I think every pastor should be required to read this, regardless of their church's current health and growth.

I've read many books on church growth/church health, and this one is near the top of my list. Although there are many commendable points made, my favorite is the authors' "Missional Matrix." In it they assert there must be a biblical grounding in Christology, Ecclesiology and Missiology. When these three truths are in balance and empowered by the Holy Spirit, a stagnant or declining congregation is on its way to becoming a "comeback church."This book is a very good read, and would be helpful to any pastor or church leader.

Wow, as a pastor who still longs for the dreams and visions I had in seminary. This book breaths the fresh wind of Holy Spirit and biblical convictions into my soul. I want to be a comeback pastor of a comeback church. To many friends and colleagues I have seen in ministry allow those God-given dreams die to settle for status-quo and job security. This book will re-awaken those dreams give you the courage to face the giants of church ministry.
