The McDonaldization of Protestant Organizations

Dennis W. Hiebert


Have Protestant organizations become so rationalized that they resemble fast-food corporations? Dennis Hiebert examines evidence that efficiency, calculability, predictability, and control have become primary principles in diverse Christian organizations and argues that this "McDonaldization" must be resisted because of its alienating and secularizing effects. Mr. Hiebert is Professor of Sociology at Providence College, Manitoba, Canada.
