the business of church, inc.

Here’s an interesting and well done article from the U.K.-based international newsweekly The Economist about the business-fication of American megachurches.

Interesting thoughts from a secular magazine.

  1. Glad to see you posting again. Interesting article you got here…There is much in the article that turned my stomach and other parts that cause me to ponder. I have more thinking to do on this subject.
    I was surprised, however, by the fairness of the journalism. It has been awhile since I have read an article that was actual reporting on events instead of an editorial disguised as authentic reporting. That’s all for now. I’m going to let this brew for a bit…

    oh! how do you like the NASB translation?

  2. Stumbled across your blog. Thanks for the link to this article. Interesting stuff.

    Grace & Peace,

  3. Cory, I like NASB fine. It’s more wooden than I would normally go for, but I’m doing the read-the-bible-in-a-year thing and have already done so in the NLT and The Message. I study in the NRS and NIV typically, so I figured that for some balance I should read NASB this year. Also, I like The Economist. If it was like $100/year for a subscription (or if I had a little more $), I’d be tempted to subscribe. Good international focus. I pick one up at B&N every once in a while.

    Matthew, thanks for stopping by…curious how you got to Texas all the way from Canada.

    Richard, I’ll have to check out your blog. I’ve been behind in my blogging lately.
