The American Church in Crisis is a reality check that provides an honest look at the state of the church in America. Employing thorough research that yield eye-opening statistics, Dave Olson gives us a realistic snapshot of the state of the American church/5(19).

In his foreword to Marshall’s book, Bishop Athanasius Schneider calls Infiltration a “significant contribution” to the work of raising awareness of the “historical roots and perpetrators” of today’s crisis. Against those who would scoff at any mention of a Freemasonic threat, Bishop Schneider speaks specifically of an infiltration.

See search results for this author. Are you an author. 5/5(3). The evangelical church is in a crisis today. Some see it as teetering on a precipice, its demise merely decades away unless severe counter-measures are taken. The overt pragmatism, separation of “religious truth” from “real truth,” and marginalization of the Lordship of Christ and the authority of scripture are a large part of the reason for this crisis.

I recently had the privilege to read David T. Olson's book The American Church in Crisis as part of my ministerial studies in pursuit of my Master's of Divinity.

As part of my class's study of the state of the American Church, I found it quite revealing in that it really fit well into some of the things I had already believed and had been /5. As we look through church history, we see that the church has been through many times of crisis.

In fact, some of those crises came right at the beginnings of the church. One big crisis came before we even get out of the pages of the New Testament. In AD 64, there was the Great Fire in Rome.

Chapters in the book explore the following areas in which churches possess immense potential: a commitment to care for God’s creation as our first calling; a scriptural basis in pursuing justice for a planet and its people; a moral foundation for understanding the climate crisis as an inequality crisis.

As a long term Jim Wallis reader I started this book, chosen by our church book group, with a certain level of frustration seeing it initially as a reworking of previous ideas but narrowly focused on the Presidency of Donald Trump and the crisis that has prompted in American church life and civil society, thus failing to see any great application beyond that/5.

Reading the current crisis through the lenses of Scripture and Church history, Bishop Barron shows that we have faced such egregious scandals before; that the spiritual treasures of the Church were preserved by holy men and women who recommitted themselves to fighting evil; and that there is a clear path forward for us today.
