So You Don’t Want to Go to Church Anymore
I put off reading this book for ages because I thought it was just another church-bashing piece written by a burnt-out pastor, but it’s not. For starters, it was written by two people, not one (Wayne Jacobsen and Dave Coleman), and it’s a novel. It’s basically a conversation between a disillusioned Christian called Jake and someone who just might be the original apostle John. Jake starts the book totally enslaved to institutional religion but finishes free and walking tall in the unconditional love of his father. This book is a tornado of fresh air.
Do the authors a favor and buy their book from here. (It’s worth every penny!) But if you lack the money, you can download a bona fide copy of the entire book for free from here. And a big shout out to Jacobsen and Coleman for giving away their book!
