As a resource book 'The American Church in Crisis' is a good foundational tool to help understand the big picture within your denomination. The book will help explain some of the policies coming out of the national bodies of the major denominations. Leaders at the local levels need to be aware of the driving forces behind those policies while they attempt to balance their local situations with the national and global situations. Mr. Olson first brings to light a great deal of statistical information and then does a good job of evaluating trends and connecting those trends to the formulation of the policies adopted by the denominations at the national and global levels. Within Part 4 'Action' the local leader may find some helpful suggestions of how they can approach their own unique situations. This book is worthwhile as a tool to understand or at least be made aware of the different factors affecting the churches in our ever changing world.
