Does your church make you uncomfortable?
It’s easy to dream about the “perfect” church—a church that sings just the right songs set to just the right music before the pastor preaches just the right sermon to a room filled with just the right mix of people who happen to agree with you on just about everything.
Chances are your church doesn’t quite look like that. But what if instead of searching for a church that makes us comfortable, we learned to love our church, even when it’s challenging? What if some of the discomfort that we often experience is actually good for us?
This book is a call to embrace the uncomfortable aspects of Christian community, whether that means believing difficult truths, pursuing difficult holiness, or loving difficult people—all for the sake of the gospel, God’s glory, and our joy.
- Good not great. Narrator was great.
Pretty decent book. Good insights and thorough but not overwhelming details on the points. Chapters were of proper length. Long enough to be explanatory but not so long they got repetitive. There were a few chapters which had very good exposition namely the last chapter or two drawing comparison between the local church and the body of Christ. Of all chapters I recommend this one. Overall good book worth the read but don’t expect to receive any new or life changing revelations if you’ve read books similar to this before. Narration was good and easy to listen too. The narrator is really good, clear voice, good inflection at proper times, and takes the necessary pauses b
