New Xulon Book Casts Vision of a Promising Future for All Men Crouse provides tested strategies to eliminate the gap of missing men in the church

MAITLAND, Fla., Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Jay Crouse's new book, Men and the Church: Is There a Future? ($16.99, paperback, 9781628396638; $8.99, e-book, 9781628396645) provides a poignant view of the dramatic impact of a decades-long message of benign neglect communicated by mainline denominational churches toward both men in the pews of their local churches, and to the unchurched, lost men in their communities. The author points out the alarming rate of decline in church membership over recent decades—especially in men. Crouse presents readers a course of action on how to resolve this ever-increasing issue in the body of Christ.

"For decades, the local church has neglected the greatest, untapped human spiritual resource before them: men!" states the author. "The renewal of the church in the 21st century will only take place when men in the church are equipped to reach the unchurched man. Men and the Church: Is There a Future? leads the way to this renewed, local church future."

His ministry to men journey began in the Episcopal Diocese of SW Florida and has expanded nationally and to the church at large.
