The bigger picture of the church

Note: The renowned Protestant religious historian, Martin Marty, coins the term declinism to indicate widespread preoccupation with declining memberships in many denominations. Though he speaks from the perspective of a historian, he could be writing to anyone interested in the long-term welfare of humanity. Professor Marty encourages the reader to question “the almost reflexive use of the rubric ‘decline’ in relation to the western Christian presence.”
