Review of John S. Dickerson’s The Great Evangelical Recession

This book is to me a rehash of things that I have already read and heard in regards to the issue of faith and culture. As a pastor, I have read several books imagesand gone to some seminars that have dealt with some of the issues in this book especially the dropping out of young adults. There were some new insights especially regarding the use of part-time staff in place. But overall it was simply a review of things I have already read and heard. It was overwhelming to read the first half of the book and I think that integrating parts of the first half into the suggestions in the second half would be more helpful to the reader.

This was an ‘ok’ read.

Note: My review is based on a Net Galley copy via the publisher Baker Publishing Group
