An honest look at what the attractional church does verses what its perception of what it does. Wilson, having come from the attractional church model, addresses it's flaws and at times. its good points. Overall, the atttractional church model fails and is failing due to its blindness to the reality that it minimizes the Gospel, at best, and ignores it, at its worst. I would strongly recommend this book for every pastor, elder, youth director/leader, worship leader or any other leadership person making important decisions regarding the local church. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 143354461X, Paperback)

This book is not a tired rant.
This book is not a reactionary diatribe.
This book is a gentle manifesto against the status quo.

In The Prodigal Church, Jared Wilson challenges church leaders to reconsider their priorities when it comes to how they “do church” and reach people in their communities, arguing that we too often rely on loud music, flashy lights, and skinny jeans to get people in the door.

Writing with the grace and kindness of a trusted friend, Wilson encourages readers to reexamine the Bible’s teaching, not simply return to a traditional model for tradition’s sake. He then sets forth an alternative to both the attractional and the traditional models: an explicitly biblical approach that is gospel focused, grace based, and fruit oriented.
