9780816312986: Ten Who Left: People Who Have Left the Church and Why

Why do People leave the Church?
Why not ask them?
We have plenty of greeters at the form door. But do we have enough lifeguards posted at the back door?
Why do members leave the church? Do they come to doubt its doctrines and teachings? Is it because of conflict with other church members? Do they feel neglected? Some estimates suggest that between one and two million former Seventh-day Adventists live in North America alone-and that less than half of the division's 800,00-plus members attend church even once a month.
If these figures are even close, alarms should be sending every church in North America to red alert. We simply must find the solution to the swinging back door ant hen take dramatic steps and keep the family whole. What better way to find out when members leave than to ask them? In Ten Who Left, that is just what Fred Cornforth and Tim Lale have done. Each of these "exit interviews" concludes with questions for discussion or reflection.
Those interviewed here have not as yet returned to our fellowship. Whether they-and millions of others like them-ever do many depend on whether they are pursued encouraged by the indifference and condescension of the Elder Brother.
