This book is the story of changes that one church in Maryland made in order to "rebuild" their parish. This is also a book that everyone working at my church office has read, and has been in part the subject of more then one homily as well. So that is why I read it. It was an interesting look at how modern people often view church and ways that changing that can improve the life of a parish as well as make it a place where the unchurched people can feel welcome to investigate church. It deals a lot with seeing what is working in other churches, but not blindly coping things, rather looking at what is the underlying reason that something works. It also has a lot of on-line resources for more information.
