Chapters updating church member giving and membership data in the U.S., including:

  • 1968-2014 data for a composite set of denominations
  • 1921-2014 data for 11 denominations
  • Future trends
  • Denominational overseas ministries support through 2014
  • Cost-per-day for various church populations to address global needs
  • Other potential giving such as potential Catholic giving in nine archdioceses
  • U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Expenditure Survey 2014 data for charitable cash contributions, analyzed by age, region, and income levels

Chapter 8 explores the implications of the affluence that has flooded the U.S., especially since World War II. Its impact on society has been felt and not understood. The results, it is suggested, are evident in the church member giving and membership trends discussed in the first six chapters of the book. The proposed solution might be summarized as: repent and mobilize.
