Letters to the Church Book Review:

If God had it His way, what would your church look like? The New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Love challenges readers to be the Church as God intends. Do you want more from your church experience? Does the pure gospel put you in a place of awe? Are you ready to rethink church as you know it? Sit with Pastor Francis Chan and be reminded that you are a part of something much bigger than yourself, something sacred. In his most powerful book yet, Chan digs deep into biblical truth, reflects on his own failures and dreams, and shares stories of ordinary people God is using to change the world. Chan says, “We’ve strayed so far from what God calls Church. We all know it. We know that what we’re experiencing is radically different from the Church in Scripture. For decades, church leaders like myself have lost sight of the inherent mystery of the Church. We have trained people sitting in the pews to become addicted to lesser things. It’s time for that to change.” When Jesus returns, will He find us caring for His Bride—even more than for our own lives? Letters to the Church reminds us of how powerful, how glorious the Church once was … and calls us to once again be the Church God intended us to be.

This book examines seven messages John of Patmos sent to those churches. According to Revelation 1:11, on the Greek island of Patmos, Jesus Christ instructs John of Patmos to: "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamum, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea." The Seven Churches of Asia, also known as the Seven Churches of the Apocalypse and the Seven Churches of Revelation, are seven major churches of Early Christianity, as mentioned in the New Testament Book of Revelation. All of them are located in the Asia Minor, present-day Turkey.

Letters to a Broken Church Book Review:

A message that can no longer be ignored... Drawing on the personal experience of survivors of abuse and their allies, Letters to a Broken Church speaks directly into the existential abuse crisis facing the Church of England and other Christian denominations right now. Its powerful message is that the structures, leadership, practices and culture of the Church must change radically to face up to the historic scale of abuse within its institutions at all levels. The clear requirement for transparency and accountability after decades of evasion and denial is also highlighted in these essays, along with the need to make proper recompense to those whose lives have been impacted. Contributors to Letters to a Broken Church include a serving bishop, a well-known newspaper columnist, several theologians and others from public life -- but principally people in the shadows whose voices and experience as survivors have frequently been pushed aside, marginalised or silenced within the Church. Here is a searingly honest, multi-voice call for action and redress that can no longer be ignored.

Letters to a Future Church Book Review:

Exiled on the island of Patmos, the apostle John found himself one day in the presence of the Son of God. As he fell down to worship, the apostle was commanded to write what he saw and heard, and to record and send messages to seven churches, encouraging them and challenging them in the way of the Lord. That was then; this is now. What might the Spirit say to our churches today? What might the Spirit be saying to you? Chris Lewis and the Epiphaneia Network put that question to their friends. This book includes some of the responses they got. With contributions from such significant voices as Andy Crouch Ron Sider Tim Challies Peter Rollins Sarah Lance Makoto Fujimura and others, Letters to a Future Church paints a portrait of the world as we have it and the mission we have in it. You may find your calling in this book; you may even find your own voice.

Letters to the Church Book Review:

A critical presidential election looms before us. Whether you love Donald Trump or despise him, most everyone agrees that he masterfully keeps people and the country off-balance. His acerbic rhetoric, divisive priorities, and erratic leadership foster further division and widespread anxiety. That causes some Americans to go in search of any candidate who can defeat him in the upcoming election. For others, though, Trump’s brash style, anti-establishment platform, hardline policies, and “Make America Great Again” promises are reasons to support him and work enthusiastically for his reelection. Letters to the Church seeks to help compassionate, thoughtful Christians regain our bearings and find our voice and courage for honest, hopeful conversations in this de-centering era of Trump. These conversations will help recenter the church for faithful discernment, courageous imagination, and constructive engagement in the broader community. By doing so, the church can renew its own life and model what conversation and participation can look like in a time otherwise characterized by extremism, suspicion, fear, and gridlock. Geared for use by both individuals and church study groups, the letters are organized into three sections: “What We are Experiencing Now,” “What We Hope For,” and “What We are Called To.”
