The thesis of this book, “Many church growth dogmas are merely myths” opens a new chapter in the international discussion of church growth. In this book Christian A. Schwarz presents the practical conclusions drawn from the most comprehensive study ever conducted on the cause of church growth. More than 1000 churches in 32 countries on all six continents took part in this project. The most important finding? That the true cause of church growth is not what we have often believed it to be.
