Summary
How do congregations react to significant communitiy change? Why do some religious institutions decline in the face of racial integration while other adapt and grow? How do congregations make sense of economic distress? Do they provide havens from community upheaval or are they vehicles for change? Congregations and Community is a study of congregations in the face of community transformation. Nancy Ammerman and her colleagues include stories of over twenty congregations in nine communities from across the nation, communities with new immigrant populations, growing groups of gays and lesbians, rapid suburbanization, and economic dislocations.--From publisher's description
