Rechurching Rural America

This book was written in conjunction with the 1998 to 2001 restudy of about 500 rural and small town churches in 99 townships in Missouri. This is the third restudy of these churches. The foundational study was done in 1952. Lilly Foundation funded the study. It was conducted by the rural sociology department of the University of Missouri and by the Missouri School of Religion. I served as a consultant. I prepared some of the studies to provide background for the persons from the University who did the field work. Other studies were done as a part of the initial analysis. Here a working manuscript of the book is presented:
