A joint publication of The Aspen Institute and The Alban Institute
Featuring a thoughtful essay by James P. Wind, president of the Alban Institute, and a lively annotated resource list for lay and clergy by Diana Butler Bass, this report draws on the Public Role of Mainline Protestantism (PROMP) project. PROMP is a research program of the Center for the Study of Religion at Princeton University and was supported by the Pew Charitable Trusts. The essay and accompanying excerpts question conventional wisdom about the declining public role of the mainline denominations; Wind and Bass both offer advice and support for its continued reinvigoration.
