Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes. It definitely showed some of the problems with the American church and raised my awareness that we need to ask why these things are happening. Without knowing the problems we have in the American church it is impossible to begin to fix them. Therefore, as the pastor of Creekside Bible Church, it was good to see the statistics so that we can continue to strive towards discipling people.
On the flip side, the author made an attempt at solving the problems. This took the latter part of the book and really was not very informative. This aspect of the book seemed far less thought out than the statistical data that drove home the crisis shown in the first part of the book.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The most interesting aspect of the story was statistical data about the American church. It was fascinating to see the data on different types of churches.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
It was weird having a guy narrate with a British accent when the book was about the church in America. I'm not sure why they did this. The author is from Minnesota and the British accent took away from the voice of the book.
Could you see The American Church in Crisis being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
No. This is definitely not THAT type of book. Perhaps a documentary could be loosely based on its contents.
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed most of the book, but the part focused on a solution left a lot to be wanting. The data was straightforward and the author did a good job of making a book no numbers interesting enough to finish.
