Insights from Philip Yancey's personal pilgrimage away from and back to the church—what made him walk away, and what drew him back.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. This book:Weighs the church's human failings against its compelling worth as the body of Christ.Looks into what God may have in mind for His church.Discusses how the church can reach beyond its walls and into the communities and lives around it to be more than just “Sunday worship.”
Yancey does not whitewash the church's faults. 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.This book is for anyone who’s ever wondered: Why bother with church?
