Overview


It's sad but true: The American church is shrinking...fast.  God-loving people are leaving in droves, and everything that attracted them in the past simply doesn't work anymore. 

Is there anything the church can do to turn the tide?

Why Nobody Wants to Go to Church Anymore reveals the truth about this steep decline, along with innovative ideas for changing the way people think about church.  Through startling statistics, compelling stories, and a surprising Jesus-based approach, you'll be stretched to redefine the way you do church.

It all begins by embracing four simple acts of love:

  • Radical hospitality
  • Fearless conversation
  • Genuine humility
  • Divine anticipation  
Far from theoretical musings, these practical acts show Jesus' love to people who crave it.  You'll see why they really work, how they're taking root in hundreds of communities around the country, and how you can help bring people back into a relationship with God.

The time for changing the church is now.  And the one who can change it is you.

    I purchased the e-book because our Pastor gave us the discussion guide to use for a Wednesday evening Bible study series. The book was very informative and inspiring.
    However there were several places in the e-book where the material could not be read no matter how much the size of the font was increased. I believe they must have been copies of handouts that the authors use for their outreach churches. This was a small inconvenience and otherwise the book was well researched and provided useful information. The book and corresponding discussion guide is providing a desire and methods to reach out into the community more.
