This book is one of the best offerings on the modern day church system that I have read in a long time. It’s a sticky subject for many to say the least. And I guess the million dollar question would be:
Is the “church” we see and experience all around us in our time the same church that we read about in the New Testament?
My wife and I started asking that question over thirty years ago. The only conclusion we could come up with was an absolute “NO!” What we see around us definitely is not the same as what we read about in our bibles. I think that most Christians, if they are honest with themselves, would agree with that statement. But then the next question which is begging to be answered is: “well, then what do we do about it?” And are we even supposed to do anything about it?
In this book, aptly titled Unchurching, Richard Jacobson does an excellent job at tackling these questions head-on using only the scriptures as his resource. He does so with razor sharp biblical and theological accuracy with attention to every detail. Fundamentalists, evangelicals, and charismatics alike will have a very difficult time arguing with Richard’s points made in this book.
So, if you are searching for the truth about the way we “do” church nowadays and are willing to be painfully truthful with yourself about the answers, this is the book for you! I guarantee that it will completely rock your world. And so it should! It’s way past time for God’s people to stand up, be counted, and be willing to speak the truth in love with the goal in mind that God will get the church that HE has always dreamed of!
I highly recommend you read this book today, but only if you are not afraid of the truth!
