Review & Reflection: Why bother with Church?

qcachurch_original-yxupwh4ibp64wbxntip4nka3fedlfadrIt seems to be increasingly common to hear people say that they are “Spiritual but not religious” or that they love Jesus but are turned off by church.  Sam Allberry has done us all a great service by writing a response to this mindset in his little book called: “Why bother with Church: And other questions about why you need it and why it needs you”.  I loved Allberry’s earlier book on homosexuality and I’ve found this little book to be equally helpful.  The strength of Allberry’s style is that it is both pithy and pointed.  It comes in at under 100 pages and is written not only to address the perspective described above but also to address the person who holds to that perspective.  This is a book that I would hand to churchgoers and non-churchgoers alike.  It is brief and biblical, practical and pastoral, and is an invaluable resource for our current cultural climate.

I would like to thank the good folks over at Cross Focused Reviews for providing me with a free review copy of this book.  I was not obligated to provide a positive review.
