When Church Stops Working

Meeting With God in Your Living Room
  • By David Wentz
Product Description

If church has stopped working for you, there is a time-honored Biblical alternative. Jesus promised, “Where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them" (Matthew 18:20). With a few friends and a little faith, anyone can claim that promise and experience the love and power that turned the world upside down.

Denominational splits, scandals, and political preaching have left many Christians looking for an alternative to institutionalized church. Others would love to be part of a good congregation where they sense God’s presence, but can’t find one nearby. With positive practical advice suited to every religious background or none, Dr. Wentz walks you through meeting with God in your own living room. It’s how Christians gathered in the New Testament and the American frontier, and it’s a growing movement around the world today.

Part One looks at how the joyful, empowering gatherings of Jesus’ followers in Bible times became the institutional church of today. Part Two gives step-by-step options and guidance for how to make a home gathering work in your own situation. Appendices address sermons and potential problems.

If church has stopped working for you, but your spirit knows something is missing, God may be calling you to try something new. You don’t need a preacher. You don’t need a special building. All you need is a few friends and a little faith.

P.S. If you know someone who doesn’t like church but still likes Jesus, give them this book!

What a refreshing read! Balanced in viewpoint and refraining from church-bashing, I found this book to be a practical guide and a breath of fresh air! A quality book that will make waves as we enter a time of church reformation in the coming years.”
