Three noted historical theologians and a team of researchers study the reasons for the decline of the mainline denominations and then use that research to guide pastors, leaders and church members in finding new ways to grow both spiritually and in numbers.

The authors describe this book as a summary of research on American mainstream Protestantism in the twentieth century and an assessment of the significance of that research for mainstream Protestant denominations on the verge of the twenty-first century. The bewildering wealth of research certainly justifies a summary, and this one is both useful and timely. The intended audience of church members and clergy should find the book more accessible than much of the research it summarizes. But it is also likely to appeal to the broader audience of individuals who, though not religiously affiliated, share some interest in the cultural impact and vitality of mainstream Protestantism. Ample documentation makes the book a useful introduction for academic as well as nonacademic audiences; it is both a summary and a collection of pointers that should make the whole body of research more accessible to students of religion. Steve Schroeder The authors find many vital signs of healing and renewal in the mainline church. This is an essential book. -- The Presbyterian Outlook, November 11, 2002This book will help people who care about mainstream Protestant denominations to look toward the future with hope. -- Dorothy C. Bass, Valparaiso UniversityVital Signs provides words of hope and worlds of insight for the future of many Protestant churches and denominations. -- Roberta Hestenes, Eastern College
