    If You're Looking for a Reason to Go to Church, This is It!

    15 Good Reasons Not to Go to Church And One Great Reason You Should by author Michael J. Insalaco takes a good look at 15 reasons why people say they can't go to church and offers a different perspective on every reasoning. Common reasons like Sundays are their only day off, or they're going to be asked to volunteer or they don't know/don't have a Bible to other reasons like the pastors are always asking for money or they've seen pastors abuse their authority are all cited in here.

    He then offers his own views based on what the Bible says about it and encourages the readers to try and go to church anyway. After citing the 15 reasons, he offers one very good reason to go to church (you have to buy the book to find out what that is). The last part of the book then helps the one searching for a church with some specific guidelines on how to choose a church that is suited for himself or for his family.

    At first look, I didn't think I would be interested in 15 Good Reasons Not to Go to Church And One Great Reason You Should because it looked like such a serious book. But after reading the first 50 pages, I found myself laughing out loud while reading and not wanting to stop reading!

    Admittedly, finding a church to attend is a serious matter, but Michael J. Insalaco manages to find the humor in this search. It may seem as if a debate is brewing in between its pages, but surprisingly it does not. It is a very easy read, with each chapter not extending beyond five pages. Easy to read but with a very meaty content, written in an entertaining and encouraging style.

    I agree with the reviews written at the back of the book that this should be read by every Christian. It should also be given to any of your friends or loved ones who are hesitant or don't want to go to church. As I write this, I'm still chuckling to myself thinking about the imaginary woman sitting in the back row ready to whack you with her purse if you make a mistake. The author's advice: whack her back :). Seriously, though, this truly is a good book to read for every Christian who does or doesn't have trouble asking someone to go to church with him. Not only that, it is also for someone who is seriously seeking for a church to go to.
