Summary
MacNair (sociology, U. of Louisiana at Lafayette, retired) shows how American mega-churches continue to grow in popularity despite the fact that these organizations distort Christian values and traditions by following traditional business models. Written for general readers, this book explores the organizational approach to Christian leadership by analyzing sermons, music, groups and services, messages and values and the physical meeting place. The author uses his own experiences as a faith leader and social scientist to question the relationship between fundraising and traditional belief systems.
