The subtitle, "What's working and why," is half right. Weeks gives many examples of churches doing things right, but offers little analysis as to why some programs work and others don't, or why some churches flourish while others die. There are few "action items," by which I mean key takeaways that a church leader can implement. It's one thing to show a congregation with a successful ministry, and another to explain what another congregation would need to do to replicate those results.
One characteristic of this book struck me as odd. The author notes that this new Presbyterian ecology he's studying "employs digital technology and social media more than printed and published literature." Yeah. More than. Direct quote. But this book is NOT, so far as I could discover, available in any digital format.
UPDATE: The book is now available for Kindle. This is the first title published by Geneva Press I've seen on Kindle. Hopefully there will be many more!
The Sunday School class actively discussed each chapter.
