the book

On Sunday, March 15, 2020, churches across America were empty. The Covid-19 pandemic engulfed the world, accelerating the technological, social, and spiritual trends that are changing how churches must engage our world.
With clear, documented insights, Empty Church explains why leading a healthy church is so much more difficult today. But Empty Church doesn’t stop there. With the education of a missiologist and the experience of a churchman, Stanley E. Granberg, Ph.D., provides practical, actionable steps the church can take to address the challenge of empty churches.
