Unchurching: Christianity Without Churchianity

Unchurching: Christianity Without Churchianity

Richard Jacobson

Millions of believers are currently leaving the organized church, without giving up their faith. Sadly, many are only defining themselves by what they don’t do, as Christians who simply “don’t go to church.” It’s time for these believers to catch a vision for genuine spiritual community, outside the walls of organized Christianity, a way of being the church without going to church.

Unchurching: Christianity Without Churchianity will challenge everything you thought you knew about church. Unchurching boldly examines whether organized churches are even biblical. It thoroughly deconstructs the idea of special church buildings, paid pastors, weekly sermons, mandatory tithes and offerings, gender inequality in church leadership, and much more.

Unchurching is intended to empower believers who are done with organized church but aren’t ready to abandon their faith. It will give non-churchgoing Christians a vision for genuine spiritual community that simply functions like an extended spiritual family. And it will equip them with the language to finally articulate that vision to others.

Here’s what others are saying about Unchurching:

“I have written several books about church myself, but this one is better than any of the ones I have written.” – Jeremy Myers, author of The Atonement of God

“If you are searching for the truth about the way we ‘do’ church … this is the book for you! I guarantee that it will completely rock your world.” – Milt Rodriguez, author of The Community Life of God

“Richard Jacobson has been on both sides of this shift and is uniquely qualified to write about it—which he does well, with insight, humility, and scholarship … Highly recommended.” – Felicity Dale, author of An Army of Ordinary People

“As I read this book I felt my pulse quicken and my heart leap for joy because everything Richard writes about is centered on, around, and in relation to the One who would rather die than live without us.” – Keith Giles, author of This Is My Body: Ekklesia As God Intended

“Unchurching will help you capture a vision for a fresh start that is built upon the Lord Jesus Christ … ” – Jon Zens, author of A Church Building Every 1/2 Mile

Blue Like Elvis

Blue Like Elvis

Diane Moody

From bestselling author Diane Moody, Blue Like Elvis has over 150 “Five star” reviews.

Do you remember where you were the day Elvis died?
I do. I know exactly where I was.
I was there.

In the summer of 1977, Shelby Colter moved back to Memphis, Tennessee hoping to make a fresh start after breaking off her engagement. Working as a patient representative hostess at Baptist Memorial Hospital–the world’s largest private hospital–she’s thrilled with her new job, assisting patients with their non-medical needs. She has to laugh at her colorful co-workers who constantly chat about Elvis-sightings. After all, Baptist Memorial was “Elvis’s hospital.”

Shelby hits the ground running, taking care of her patients, getting to know her new friends, and bumping into . . . Dr. Tucker Thompson? Who knew that annoying kid who used to hang out with her big brother was now a resident at Baptist Memorial Hospital? Little Chubby Tucker–a compassionate, handsome doctor?

As the summer rolls along, three people she loves face life-threatening situations, drawing Shelby back to her faith. And then one night, in a hospital prayer room, she pours out her heart to a most unexpected visitor . . .

Blue Like Elvis is loosely based on the author’s real-life experiences while working at Baptist Memorial Hospital in the summer of 1977. While most of the novel is fiction, the setting of Shelby’s adventures are based on the author’s memories of those days in Memphis leading up to that unforgettable day . . . the day Elvis died.

Letters to a Young Calvinist: An Invitation to the Reformed Tradition

Letters to a Young Calvinist: An Invitation to the Reformed Tradition

James K. A. Smith

Who would have guessed that something as austere as Calvinism would become a hot topic in today’s postmodern culture? At the 500th anniversary of John Calvin’s birth, new generations have discovered and embraced a “New Calvinism,” finding in the Reformed tradition a rich theological vision. In fact, Time cited New Calvinism as one of “10 Ideas Changing the World Right Now.” This book provides pastoral and theological counsel, inviting converts to this tradition to find in Calvin a vision that’s even bigger than the New Calvinism might suggest. Offering wisdom at the intersection of theology and culture, noted Reformed philosopher James K. A. Smith also provides pastoral caution about pride and maturity. The creative letter format invites young Calvinists into a faithful conversation that reaches back to Paul and Augustine, through Calvin and Edwards, extending to Kuyper and Wolterstorff. Together they sketch a comprehensive vision of Calvinism that is generous, winsome, and imaginative.

Homestands (Chicago Wind Book 1)

Homestands (Chicago Wind Book 1)

Sally Bradley

A Christian reconciliation romance from USA Today bestselling author Sally Bradley

When baseball star Mike Connor stumbles across his ex-wife six years after their divorce, he’s stunned to find that she’s the mother of a kindergartner who wears his jersey. And shares his last name.

The last thing Meg Connor wants is to be around Mike. After all, he was the one who hurt and abandoned her. But she can’t deny him—or their son—time together to build a relationship, which means Mike is around too often, reminding her of why she fell in love with him so long ago. If only she could forget their past… The painful and the good.

Between their guilt and closely held hurts, Meg and Mike struggle against each other, their feelings, and God as they fight their own desires for the future, a future that might never happen when the past that tore them apart collides with their present.

EXCERPT

She glanced over her shoulder at him, face pinched. “Go outside with Terrell,” she said, scrubbing a plate harder than seemed necessary. “I’ll clean up.”

“I told him I’d be out in a bit.” Mike set the dishes next to the sink. He leaned backward against the counter. “I missed you last night.”

She kept quiet, intent on the dirty dishes.

“They put me at a table with some Bears players. Nice guys. Big, though. The mayor was at the next table over. My friend Travis got stuck with a bunch of highbrows, but knowing him, he probably enjoyed it.”

She dropped silverware into the water, the clatter a slap to his dying patience.

“Felt like I talked to everybody there. People stopped by my table all night.” He gave her a sideways glance, but she didn’t seem to be listening. “Of course, I would have told them to get lost if you’d been there.”

Still no reaction.

“You can’t be mad at me for this, Meg. I wanted to take you. It stunk going with someone else.”

“Didn’t look like it,” she snapped.

This woman… “I paid for two tickets. I had to take someone. So stop making judgments based on what you think you’ve seen.”

She faced him, her jaw clenched, anger blazing in her eyes. “What I think I’ve seen? What about what I know happened?”

“I’m not talking about the past, Meg! I’m talking about last night. You saw… what? Half a second of us with our hands together? I wasn’t holding her hand. She held mine, and I got out of it as fast as I could.”

This wasn’t worth it. This was not worth it. If only he liked Sara; then he’d call her back like she wanted.

But he didn’t like her.

Not that he liked Meg at the moment, either. He bit down on his tongue and forced himself to stay. To wait for her to speak.

She rinsed one dish after another, the dishwasher slowly filling.

She was gonna drive him crazy.

He leaned back to catch her eye and force her to acknowledge him.

Her cheeks looked damp.

“Are you crying?”

“No.” She swiped her cheeks with her wrist. “I splashed water on my face.”

He’d never meant to hurt her. At least, not this time. Why were they suddenly so bad for each other? “Meg, you can’t jump to conclusions.” He reached for her shoulder.

She backed away, sudsy hands in front of her. “Don’t touch me,” she spat, tear tracks continuing down her face.

His temper snapped. “Believe me. It’s not even tempting right now.”

Her eyes hardened. Flickered.

Good.

He swallowed. No, not good. He’d just hurt her worse.

But she’d pushed him to it. What woman turned a guy down, then got upset when he took someone else? Did Meg not get her own insanity?

She returned to the sink. “Go outside with Terrell.”

Might as well. “I’m taking him with me. He can play on the field, hit in the batting cage. A kind of graduation present. You good with that?” Not that he cared. He was taking Terrell.

She shrugged. “Whatever, Mike. Just go.”

He headed for the back yard. How had this week gone so wrong?
