Keeping Your Church Alive is a book that breathes new oxygen into traditional truths. It is traditionally believed that Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. always carried a particular book with him for inspiration entitled "Jesus and the Disinherited" written by the late Reverend Dr. Howard Thurman.
As a Christian for over 35 years I am again inspired and motivated by this book Keeping Your Church Alive. Every Pastor should have this book at his or her fingertips and every parishioner should make every effort to read and encourage one another. Keeping Your Church Alive is hermeneutically biblically sound and theologically correct. This book has the ability to answer questions that many church committed Christians have asked for years. Wayne J. Vaughan is not only a great writer he is also a wonderful committed Christian. - Reverend Dr. Calvin R. Kendrick former Minister of Evangelism Trinity Baptist Church and Pastor of Victory Baptist Church Bronx NY.
A very helpful book full of wisdom and experience. Vaughan provides clear indicators and insights about healthy church growth from his many years serving in the church. Any congregation or pastor that has ears to ear would benefit from reading it. - Rev. Dr. Grace Y. May Executive Director of Women of Wonder Inc. Professor at William Carey International University and ordained Presbyterian Church (USA) pastor for sixteen years.
