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, and weighs the church's human failings against its compelling worth as the body of Christ. Yancey does not whitewash the church's faults, rather 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.

Review 2 for Church: Why Bother?

Shalom to all~May the peace of God be with you all~Philip Yancey is my favorite Chrisitan author and I read a lot of his books because I enjoy his writing and topics he talks about in his books.However,I read this book not by choice but by necessity. I was struggling with the very same topic Philip Yancey talked about in the book. I read it a while ago, but I still remember the last paragraph of the book because it gave me a reason to serve church again with all I've received from God. I want to recommend this book to those who are struggling in faith and especially those whose struggle is due to fellow Christians not because of God.
