Book Review: The Church Awakening
I am a long time fan of Charles Swindoll, so when I saw that his book The Church Awakening: An Urgent Call for Renewal was available for review, I jumped at the opportunity! Charles Swindoll has such a way of addressing urgent needs in our lives, and the lives of churches, and offering us solutions that are practical.
In The Church Awakening: An Urgent Call for Renewal, he points out to us that many modern day churches are struggling because we have become in my opinion, too de-sensitized to many issues and challenges that we face in every day life. Mr Swindoll points out very directly that the solution to this problem is returning to biblical teaching. Sometimes the messages that we need to hear are not messages that leave us feeling happy and good about things. Sometimes we need to be uncomfortable in order to make life altering changes that are for our own good.
I received a complementary copy of The Church Awakening: An Urgent Call for Renewal from the Hatchette Book Group for review purposes only. All opinions expressed are 100% mine and were not influenced by the offering of this book. I highly recommend this book to all Christians, especially church leaders!
