$17.99

Paperback
In CHURCH, John Stackhouse takes a candid, witty and insightful look into more than forty aspects of the Church, from money and literacy to membership and renewal. He offers these observations "as the commendations and provocations of a loyal church member. . . They are offered in love - and exasperation, and longing, and even a bit of pique at times - in the hopes that the church somewhere, somehow, will be the better for them."

Heavily sprinkled with satire, this inside look at the Church provides both leaders and laypeople plenty of food for thought. Stackhouse, a keen observer of the North American church scene, is shameless about bringing both the good and the ugly to light in his provocative reflections. But he is also shamelessly passionate and practical about making the church an even better, more inviting, place to be.
