Overview

Many Christians who experience hurt in the church don't just leave their own churches; they leave the church altogether. Whether they have been wounded by pastors or people in the pews, these believers have had enough and are jumping ship in massive numbers.
Pastor and churchgoer Chris Jackson is honest about his own failings as well as those of the church at large. He identifies with many of the hurts churchgoing Christians have experienced. In Loving God When You Don't Love the Church, he hopes to provide healing to wounded and disillusioned believers and restore the wonder of a genuine relationship with Jesus and his bride, the church. Jackson's humility, compassion, and practical advice for healing and restoration will touch those who have left the church and those who love them.

I have tried many churches in my life time, but very few fit my needs. I felt talked down to, instead of talked to. I found myself in tears leaving many times because I felt judged by the other members. That is why I am thankful for this book. It strikes to the heart of what it means to be a Christian but can't quite connect with a church to fulfill what God expects of you. Read it. I'd also recommend that you read When God Stopped Keeping Score, which is an amazing look at the power of God and forgiveness. I love it. You will too.

As I was reading this book, I had discovered that a lot of what the author was talking about I had experienced. This is truly a fantastic book to read.

Some of it is very enlighening. other parts confused me. It does help to know youre not alone when you're hurt especially from the one place you think you will always be the safest..in the church of Christ
