Growing God’s Church: How People Are Actually Coming to Faith Today

Gary McIntosh. Baker Books, 2016.

Reviewed by John Doss, senior pastor, Discovery Christian Community, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Synopsis

How are people coming to faith in Christ today? And are they attending a church and staying at that church? Gary McIntosh surveyed over one thousand new believers in twenty-seven denominations across forty-three states in order to find answers to these questions. The survey is more extensive than that of Win Arn in 1980 and yields significant conclusions. McIntosh does not discuss his research, however, until the second half of the book.
