The Saints are escaping . . . Through holes in the wall, open windows, or right out the front door, they are leaving the institutional church in staggering numbers. It is not an organized, unified exodus, nevertheless, millions of true believers have given up on the traditional church system and are simply leaving. Escaping Church is a guide to help these Escapees make sense of their journey into the new world of life as kings and priests of the Most High, out from under the control of clergy-dominated living. Discover how this new life, though challenging, can be filled with adventure and joy. If you get the feeling that the church system is irrelevant to your life, Escaping Church is for you.
