Summary: "He who sups with the devil had better have a long spoon"--Peter L. Berger. Today's megachurch movement should heed this warning, because of its often uncritical use of management and marketing tools to induce growth. Os Guinness provides a perceptive, thoughtful assessment of this powerful movement and its proneness to compromise with modernity. Each chapter concludes with thought-provoking questions for reflection and discussion. This book also includes two unique meditations: Søren Kierkegaard's "Fishers of Men" and Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Celestial Rail-road." --! From back cover.
Notes: "Hourglass books."
