From the Author:

If you're a pastor or church leader who's ever wondered if it's possible to succeed today as a "traditional" Protestant church, this book is for you. If you want to know practical ideas that are working in Protestant churches in America--churches that are driven by traditional programs and structures--this book is for you. This book is the product of a six-week sabbatical research project that took me from Dallas, Texas, to New York City, Connecticut, Houston, Chicago, Indianapolis, Iowa, Los Angeles, San Diego and Atlanta to look at Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist, Congregational and Reformed churches. My goal was to find out what best practices are sustaining healthy traditional congregations.

From the Back Cover:

"Unless you start a contemporary service, your church will die." These words have led to the near-death of many a Protestant church in America in the past 30 years as the fear of being left behind has paralyzed clergy and lay leaders alike. The conventional wisdom says it's not possible to thrive today as a traditional congregation--whether "traditional" means worship style or program structure. A journey across America to look for best practices of thriving traditional congregations proves that the conventional wisdom is wrong. Here are 16 examples of "traditional" churches that remain vibrant.
