Overview

Why We Love the Church: In Praise of Institutions and Organized Religion by Kevin DeYoung, Ted Kluck

This book presents the case for loving the local church.  It paints a picture of the local church in all its biblical and real life guts, gaffes, and glory in an effort to edify local congregations and entice the disaffected back to the fold.  It also provides a solid biblical mandate to love and be part of the body of Christ and counteract the "leave church" books that trumpet rebellion and individual felt needs.

Why We Love the Church is written for four kinds of people - the Committed, the Disgruntled, the Waffling & the Disconnected.

In this day of Church bashing and "the sky is falling" Barna-isms this was a refreshing and much needed work. Ted Kluck and Kevin DeYoung make the case that the Church is not only far from dying, but is alive and well and growing because it is Christ's Church. They do not focus on any one denomination, but on organized local Churches as a Biblical model for every age. The book debunks much of the nonsense and "polls" that Barna and others have spewed on us. It is Biblically written, and cites many references from Scripture. The book is also easy to read,funny when it needs to be - an excellent work. I highly recommend it.
