The Great Dechurching, with Michael Graham and Jim Davis

Justin Holcomb interviews Jim Davis and Michael Graham, authors of ‘The Great Dechurching,’ to discuss why forty million Americans have stopped attending church in the past 25 years. Many attribute church decline to encroaching secular trends, abuse in the church, or spiritual deconstruction. While all of these trends have spiked in recent years, Davis and Graham, with the help of Ryan Burge, reveal that these factors are not the primary causes for the erosion of church attendance and they share what the church can do to turn back those estranged from her.
