Inspired by the tragic Biblical story of two mothers who agreed to eat each other's baby in order to survive a famine, Bishop Travis has taken the sermon, Don't Eat the Baby: The Characteristics of a Cannibalistic Church, and transformed it into a comprehensive book that interweaves Bible, science, and commentary on issues facing today's church.Through extensive research into the characteristics of cannibalistic animals such as the sand tiger shark, the praying mantis, the octopus, and the polar bear, Bishop Travis connects the unique aspects of each of these animals to specific issues impacting the church. This book dissects and provides solutions for recruitment, assimilation, and retention of members. Also discussed in this book are strategies for attracting men, millennials, new converts, improving attendance and maintaining unity. Other taboo topics such as sex abuse, church cliques, racism, and classism are also discussed. A must read for pastors and church leaders, this book is intended to not only bring awareness to the issues, but to also provide both Biblical and practical solutions that churches can use to overcome it's cannibalistic appetite.
