Customer Reviews For "Autopsy of a Deceased Church:12 Ways to Keep Yours Alive"Write Your Own Review
While I wish this book was longer, I can appreciate it's simple and succinct nature. The author has sourced the information used to present his ideas from real life experience, none of which he is ashamed to share with very honest opinions most would word with more tact. The 'shock' serves the vision actually, to evaluate one's one church policies, procedures and culture to see if we can stave off the 'deceased' status for our future, often through drastic action. I was sad to read of some churches dying after receiving a prognosis and an encouragement to embrace change, and hope that every church body continues to be redeemed for His glory!
