The Homeless Church - A View From Outside of the Walls
Amazon multi-category best selling eBook, THE HOMELESS CHURCH, is now available in paperback. Why are people leaving the church by the thousands? Why are fewer people looking to the church for answers? Can this trend be reversed? Did you know when Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock," he was speaking to a Church? The Homeless Church takes a fresh and honest look at the Christian Church from the inside and the outside.
Each chapter draws from the personal experience of one man's journey as he learns to reconsider his own perspective of what Church should be. Over the years he watched many people leave the Church for one reason or another and after the suicide death of one of his children, he found it necessary to leave for a season also.
All too often churches focus on what it takes to be happy, healthy and successful, but have little patience when it comes to teaching people how to hurt. When faced with sudden and unexplainable trials and tragedy, he withdrew simply because he needed time for his family to hurt, heal and recover...not because he was angry at the church. What he found outside of the traditional church walls was amazing and healing.
The Church cannot be a healing place if it doesn't learn what to do with hurting people. This story shares how one man learned he could heal when he let go of the pain that held him down. He learned he could be safe regardless of his exposure and vulnerability around others. He learned to love and be loved in his darkest moments. And he discovered the greatest wall to overcome was the one he built to protect himself.
It is our hope as you read this book that you will discover you are never as alone as you think, no matter how desperate you feel and how much you hurt, because God can surround you with His love, and with His people wherever you are...inside or outside of the brick-and-mortar Church walls.
