Product Description

The book that will forever change the way you think about church.

The statistics are clear: The American church is in decline. People are leaving in astounding numbers, with no sign of a turnaround. And despite church leaders' best efforts to stem the tide, more than 80 percent of people are finding something better to do on Sunday mornings.

Why? Is there hope for the future of the church?

In this groundbreaking new book, Thom and Joani Schultz expose the church practices that are driving people away and thwarting spiritual growth. Yet they also reveal what can bring them back - the four keys to reaching the "unchurched" and the "dechurched."

The bad news? Your church is probably missing the mark when it comes to the core of Christianity. The good news? There's hope. Lots of it.

The truth may surprise you...but it can also transform your ministry into something truly irresistible.

Why Nobody Wants to Go to Church Anymore is great for leadership teams and small group discussions.

Publisher's Description

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.
