"They were conquering heroes, who had just saved the earth from destruction. They looked like men--young and handsome, brave but modest. They acted as if they wanted the whole world to like them. Two men knew it was too good to be true. One understood power, and could see that these visitors were experts in his own techniques of manipulating public opinion. The other man believed in the dignity of the human race, and hated to see poeple being fooled. He had to fight for his--and every man's--right to chose their own destiny."--Back cover

Reclaiming glory : revitalizing dying churches by Mark Clifton( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is there about a dying church that brings glory to God' Mark Clifton's convicting answer is 'Nothing.' Because a local church is intended to represent the work of God in a community, when that church 'loses it saltiness, ' not only is God's work pictured as irrelevant in that community, but also dishonor and disrepute may well become associated with God's name as a result. In Reclaiming Glory, Clifton draws not only upon his own burden for revitalizing dying churches but also upon years of church replanting experience to offer passionate counsel for how to breathe new life into a dying church ... all for the glory of the God who is building his church upon the immovable rock of the gospel of Jesus Christ"--
