Summary
Got empathy? Tom Bandy reveals the cultural wedges and apathies that separate denominations, congregations, and neighbors from each other and from collective social agency. Bandy describes the church in America as "sidelined" -- observing cultural change but not participating in the game. He suggests proven provocative ways the church can re-engage and empathize with the people within their reach. By mining the lifestyle data revealed by the nation's economic engines and social trends, this frank and ground-breaking sociological analysis is a must read for every church leader who embraces hope for a fragmented, diverse, and polarized world. -- Publisher, page four of cover.
