This survey -a "talk-back" from local churches throughout the United States- expresses feellings and opinions conserning the present and the future of the established churches.
based on a wide range of questions, the answers refer both to the successes and failures of the present church. One of the main cries for the person represented was the need for a chance to be fully human. As one participant stated it, "I´m noy a number; i´m a me." Some readers will be shocked at what young people think of the "establishment". Some of the church boards and agencies will cringe at what the survey says about needed changes. Regardless of the personal opinions, the fact remains that the insights of all are important and must be recognized if the established church is to survive.
Written in an easy-to-read style based on thorough research, the book will be of interest to laymen and ministers who are concerned with the future work of the church. Although this survey was made in the United Methodist Church, it will be valuable to any denomination involved in self-appraisal.

An ear to the ground.

Some hit tunes.

Trends: the top of the heap.

Trends: digging on down.

issues: beyond the gothic walls.

issues: Through stained glass darkly.

Needs: open the doors and see all the people.

Needs: spring cleaning.

Some dead horses and a few colts aborning.

Tempted, yet compelled!
