In the July 14 online edition of the Baptist Press, Bob Pearle's article titled "When the Bubble Bursts." Dr. Pearle discussed a few of the "bubbles" that have burst in the past decade, including the dot-coms, the financial sector, the housing market and the oil industry. He compares those to the current bubble that is seen in churches throughout the country. Dr. Pearle goes on to explain why this is occurring and what should be done (and who we should turn to) in order to prevent the bubble from 'bursting'.
