Abstract:

Unmasks the hidden ""worldviews"" that stand in the way of congregational vitality and mission: They are problems with which every pastor is familiar: dwindling attendance in Sunday school classes; high levels of gossip and dissatisfaction; widespread apathy; weak financial support; inability to reach out to the unchurched.
