The book is about church and synagogue affiliation in the United States. The reports presented explore the dynamics of congregational affiliation: the motivations that impel people to join a congregation, drop out, or remain unaffiliated; the practices that attract or repel membership; and the ways in which contextual religious, social, and cultural factors influence patterns of congregational affiliation.
