According to an article in Chrsitianity Today, both Glenn Stanton’s The Myth of the Dying Church: How Christianity is Actually Thriving in America and the World and Rick Richardson’s You Found Me: New Research on How Unchurched Nones, Millennials, and Irreligious are Surprisingly Open to Christian Faith document how the evangelical church is growing or at least holding its own in the U.S.
John Dickerson, in The Great Evangelical Recession says the opposite, that people -- especially young adults and single moms -- are ditching the church in droves.
Or is Dickerson's book (2013) dated, and these newer books showing how things are now as opposed to 2013?
Everyone agrees that mainline Protestantism is a sinking ship, and the rate of its sinking is speeding up.
So what is happening -- really? How do you see it?
