Publisher's Summary

Insights from Philip Yancey's personal pilgrimage away from and back to the church.

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.

Indeed, Why Bother with Church?

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book.

However, to be honest, I'd have preferred Philip Yancey reading it (not that Maurice England did a bad job reading it).

I'm looking forward to sharing the thoughts I learned here with a friend, Andy, who's struggling with this very question right now, 'Why Bother with Church at all?'
