Publisher's Description

Jake Colsen, an overworked and disillusioned pastor, happens into a stranger who bears an uncanny resemblance (in manner) to the apostle John. A number of encounters with John as well as a family crisis lead Jake to a new understanding of what his life should be like: one filled with faith bolstered by a steady, close relationship with the God of the universe. Facing his own disappointment with Christianity, Jake must forsake the habits that have made his faith rote and rediscover the love that captured his heart when he first believed.

Compelling and intensely personal, SO YOU DON'T WANT TO GO TO CHURCH ANYMORE relates a man's rebirth from performance-based Christianity to a loving friendship with Christ that affects all he does, thinks, and says. As John tells Jake, "There is nothing the Father desires for you more than that you fall squarely in the lap of his love and never move from that place for the rest of your life."

    For anyone wondering why they seem frustrated with the status quo of "church", or seeking that deeper relationship with God, this book is a must read. The depth of the love of the Father and the truth presented will set you free to be - wherever you are. Whether inside or outside the traditional brick-and-mortar building, you ARE the church. The truth that nothing I do will cause God to love me any more, or love me any less is a powerful tool for propelling us forward in our relationship with Him. Well written, the name is a bit of a curiosity, however! Loved the e-book so much, but wanted a copy to "highlight", so I ordered 3 printed books! One for me, one for the spouse and one to give away! Should have bought more of them.

    We purchased several of these books after reading it and although we received the order a couple of weeks ago the copies have been passed around our Sunday School class already. Our friends have read it and passed it on and commented on what a great, easy read it is. I am also on a Christian forum and the book was recommended by people on there who I have never met and are scattered across the globe. If you haven't read it - it is a MUST.

    This book has helped me come to peace with my questions, thoughts and struggles. It has helped me see the problem more clearly and has given me clues to the way out!

    Although I disagree with a couple of points in the book, I'd strongly recommend it to anyone who's searching for more than traditional church hierarchy, meetings, teachings, ministries, and even Bible study groups! If you're digging deeper and are thirsty for more of God, yet church teachings make you feel as if you fall way too short of God's measures which leaves you with heavy sense of guilt, this book is going to show you how to trust His ability to accomplish His purpose in you.

    In So You Don't Want to Go to Church Anymore, Jake Colsen, an associate pastor at an everyday church, fosters a friendship with a strange and wise middle-aged man. This man named John opens up Jake to many problems in the church that have been bubbling under the surface. What ensues is a journey of faith for Jake as he abandons the hollow-hearted church in search of something more. I found this book to be convicting, challenging and inspirational. Wayne Jocabsen presents many problems that are overlooked in many churches, and shows the reader the solution: the love of Christ. The author continually expresses that the love of Christ should be our motivation in church, and explains that without it, we're dead inside. This book exceeded my expectations, and I hope that you will find it the same.
