5 Stars Out Of 5
A must-read for all church leaders and pastors!
October 29, 2013
I just finished reading Thom and Joani Schultz' new book Why Nobody Wants To Go To Church Anymore: And How 4 Acts of Love Will Make Your Church Irresistible. Seriously. I very seldom read a book about the Church and churchiness that I feel like buying in bulk and distributing to every pastor friend, elder, church leader that I know. This is one such book. What the Schultz's realized as they began working with hundreds of Lifetree Cafe programs all over the country (and around the world), is that each of the four acts of love they identify in their book seem to counter the top four deadly reasons that people are giving as to why they don't want to go to church any more. If you are a church leader, your church doesn't need a Lifetree Cafe ministry to make these four acts a reality in your congregation (although it's not a bad idea). In fact, the Schultz's offer up some incredible advice to church leaders on how to implement the four acts of love into their own ministries---advice that is well worth heeding. I highly recommend getting a copy of Why Nobody Wants To Go To Church Anymore, and if you are a church leader I recommend getting several copies for your staff and elders to read as well.
