This book is an unblinking look at the reasons behind the decline of the mainline churches, and a prescription for a long overdue remedy: honesty.

From the Publisher:

Your Pastor has valuable information she may not be sharing with you. Your church experience may not be fulfilling your intellectual needs. Your Pastor is conflicted. You are conflicted. It's time to talk about the elephant in the sanctuary. It's time for honesty. In The Dishonest Church, Jack Good identifies the problem, discusses it, and offers solutions for clergy and layperson alike. The problem? The "Pact of Silence". A pact in which certain difficult issues are to be left unmentioned. The classic and paramount difficult issue in Christianity is the interpretation of the Bible as the literal truth.

From the Author:

"This book is designed to help Christians define a problem that has not yet been properly discussed in print. The divide between an academic and a popular style of faith is much like alcoholism: an elephant in the sanctuary that no one wants to mention. I mention it; I describe it in detail; I offer ways to move this elephant out of the church so more genuine worship can take place there. Both the individual Christian and the church as an institution can benefit from an honest look at this dishonest situation."
