Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The Church is in crisis! Franklin Graham declared, Our churches are dead. James Dobson observed, We are awash in evil. And Rick Warren prophesied that, The future of Christianity is not Europe or North America. Is there an answer? Paige Patterson, president of the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary says, In a day of how to manuals on church growth and effectiveness.Frank Becker.has clearly enunciated the one essential, a return to the church of the New Testament. In The Depression Proof Church, Frank Becker discusses four wrong turns that the Church has taken, serious blunders that have crippled its effectiveness and muted its message. For example, the early Church invested every cent in alleviating need and spreading the gospel, but churches today set aside less than two cents on the dollar for missionary outreach, and use virtually all income to build and sustain their institutions. Most leaders have ignored Jesus words,I will build my church, and instead have attempted to appropriate Christ's role as Church Builder. Too few strive to edify or build up believers. God's people will never fulfill their potential, achieve meaningful success, or effectively reach the world until every individual is provided opportunities for intense involvement that will enable them to discover, develop, and exercise their spiritual gifts. The Depression Proof Church exposes the frustrations, summarizes the symptoms, reveals the causes, and details how a return to biblical principles and practices will build up individual believers and revitalize the Church.

Riassunto: The Church is in crisis. It is threatened from within and without! Christians are suffering the greatest wave of persecution since the founding of the Church. From Pastor Saeed's imprisonment and torture in Iran to the slaughter of Christians by jihadists in Egypt, Syria, and Nigeria, we are battling a global epidemic. Even in the U.S.A., the danger is not merely financial.
Mention of God and his salvation are now prohibited in the classroom, the Congress, and the community, and with the Church in increasing disfavor, how long will it be before those in power use taxation and the force of law to take control? Much of the criticism of the Church is justified. Franklin Graham recently stated that, "Our churches are dead!"
The Depression Proof Church goes to the heart of these problems, particularly dealing with the weaknesses of the Church in America. Three Bible college presidents recommend The Depression Proof Church: Dr. Paige Patterson, president of the Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary, America's largest seminary, wrote this, "In a day of 'how to' manuals on church growth and effectiveness, to find a man who tells the truth...is a breath of fresh air. We have to recover the New Testament pattern."
Sinossi: The Church is in crisis, threatened from within and without! The danger is not merely financial. Mention of God and his salvation are now prohibited in the classroom, the Congress, and the community, and with the Church in increasing disfavor, how long will it be before those in power use taxation and the force of law to take control? Three Bible college presidents recommend The Depression Proof Church. Dr. Paige Patterson is president of the Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary. He said, In a day of 'how to' manuals on church growth and effectiveness, to find a man who tells the truth...is a breath of fresh air. We have to recover the New Testament pattern. Dr. John Kenzy, formerly president of David Wilkerson's Teen Challenge Institute, and foor 30 years president of Youth Challenge International Bible Institute, wrote, the book is Compelling and timely. Exposes revelation from God. And Dr. Fabienne Naomi-Smith, president of the Jacksonville Theological Seminary, instituted a course based on this book. The Rev Almon Bartholomew, former Superintendent of the New York District of the Assemblies of God calls it an excellent, timely, well targeted book. And Senator Stephen R. Wise of Florida wrote that This hard hitting book challenges us to prepare for the dark days ahead by inspiring a return to biblical practices that many have forsaken in a self-defeating lust for ever larger churches. This important book thoroughly explores the crisis, exposes the frustrations, summarizes the symptoms, reveals the causes, and details how a return to biblical principles and practices will build up individual believers and revitalize the Church. The author, a former businessman, Christian talk show host, educator and pastor, exposes how the Church has become mired in a crisis of its own making. Instead of turning the world upside down for Christ, we've turned the Church inside out. The Church is depressed because it is failing, and it is failing because it has forsaken the very practices that New Testament believers found essential to fulfill the Great Commission.
