NCLA Review - In this time of dwindling church attendance and house churches comes a compelling plea to give traditional churches a second look. After 25 years the Rev. Todd Hunter himself withdrew from church attendance. He found he missed it, and eventually returned to pastoral ministry. One reason people are turned off by churches, he realized, is that their members tend to be heavy on belief and short on putting those beliefs into demonstrable action. This friendly book examines such church practices and disciplines as gathering weekly to worship, scripture reading, tithing, and Communion. He persuasively presents church as a vehicle that enables faithful Christians to live out Christ’s ways in the world 24/7. Readers who have only “attended church,” may be pleasantly surprised to discover how meaningful church can be. Good church library choice. Rating: 4 —DKW ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0830837485, Hardcover)

2011 Golden Canon Leadership Book Award winner! Everybody wants to be spiritual. But nobody wants to be religious. Everybody is looking for a rich spiritual life. But nobody is looking to church. As a pastor, Todd Hunter found himself disillusioned, burned out and needing to drop out of traditional forms of church. He experimented with house churches and other options but was still dissatisfied. Eventually he found himself sneaking off to worship services on Sunday mornings with surprising results. What did the historic spiritual practices of church do for him? How did they lead to a life of centered peace, chart a path to simplicity and cause him to reach out to others while focusing on the glory of God? Walk with Hunter on this journey to find spiritual riches in a surprising place. You might just give church another chance.
