Product Description

For some years, the Gold Medallion Award-winning author wandered away from church, disillusioned by its narrow-minded ways. Now, however, without whitewashing its obvious flaws, he sings of the church's strengths: its heart for God, care for the hurting, outreach to the lost, deep sense of family and community. 112 pages, softcover. Zondervan.

Publisher's Description

Insights from Philip Yancey’s personal pilgrimage away from and back to the church. Why are there so many more professing Christians than churchgoing Christians? Is it because something is wrong with the church? In his candid, thought-provoking manner, award-winning author Philip Yancey reveals the reasons behind his own journey back from skepticism to wholehearted participation in the church, and weighs the church’s human failings against its compelling worth as the body of Christ. Yancey does not whitewash the church’s faults, rather he sets them against the overwhelming balance of its strengths: its heart for God, its care for the hurting, its outreach to the lost, and its value as family and community.

    Church Why Bother is the personal journey of author Phillip Yancey in his quest to find out why church is important. What he finds, is that gathering with other believers important and biblical, God actually honored his seeking by giving him a deeper worship level.

    The author make several points as to why church is becoming irrelevant to many people. I'm just going to list a couple that I felt are important.

    First, it is within human nature to become bored with the same people, places and things. That is why Paul encourages us to be content in all things. We must make commitment and rely on God to help us honor them.

    Second, many Christians have come to believe that they are supposed to be entertained on Sunday morning. A jazzed up worship band, a pastor who peppers his sermon with humor, and the general opinion of what I'm I getting out of this. Now please don't get me wrong having these things in a worship service are not wrong or bad, but a lot of Christians have forgotten that church is for worshiping God. These things should enhance your worship experience, not replace them.

    The author uses many personal stories to help the reader walk through the different phases in a believers spiritual walk. It never fails to amaze me how God places a book in my path right when I need it. It helped me to remember that first and foremost I am at church to worship God and server others. If I get anything else out of it, then that's a blessing for me.

    This is a small book only about 100 pages. Would I recommend this book? Absolutely. This is a gem of a book.
