Do you feel guilty about not wanting to go every Sunday?
Or perhaps every time you go to church you feel guilty for not giving enough money or not being involved enough in church programs.
Well, you’re not alone as many Christians find the institution we call “church” just isn’t fulfilling what our souls are seeking. So You Don’t Want to Go to Church Anymore, written by Wayne Jacobson and Dave Coleman is one of the best books I’ve read this year.
The book does a great job looking at what the church truly is and the problems that arise when we put the institution before the people. The basic plot of the story centers around an assistant pastor named Jake who randomly runs into a guy named John in the park. They begin to have deep conversations that challenges everything Jake thought he knew about church and even God.
If you are like me, you desire deep relationships with people and like many others we look to the church to find this. Instead we find busy, fake, and judgmental people that we never get to know or never seem to know us. This can leave us feeling lonely and disgruntled.
So You Don’t Want to Go to Church Anymore does a great job exploring this issue and gives the reader hope that these types of close friendships are possible.
If you are finding yourself dissatisfied with church or you are in a church and are so busy helping with all the programs that you feel far from God, then this book is a must read for you.
