Jesus Called: He Wants His Church Back - Book Review
Then Ray Johnston's book Jesus Called: He Wants His Church Back is the must-read book for you. With the subtitle of "What Christians and the American Church Are Missing", Johnston points out in what ways the American church has failed Christians and in what ways today's Christians have failed at being Christians.
Going back to the 1950s, Johnston believes that in each decade since, Americans have lost something that has taken us away from the message of Jesus and the real purpose of the Christian church.
Today's Christians and churches are too apathetic. They're playing it too safe. They're not going out and evangelizing. They're just going to church and thinking that's enough.
This book provides ways for Christians to get back on track, to turn their churchgoing experience into something more exciting and life-changing, to be the kind of Christian that Jesus has been missing.
If you're a pastor looking to spice up your church, then this is a great book for you.
If you're a Christian who feels like your Christian journey has become stale, then this is a great book for you.
If you're new to Christianity and don't want to let your faith become stagnant, then this is a great book for you.
