Jake Colsen, an overworked and disillusioned pastor, happens into a stranger who bears an uncanny resemblance (in manner) to the apostle John. A number of encounters with John as well as a family crisis lead Jake to a new understanding of what his life should be like: one filled with faith bolstered by a steady, close relationship with the God of the universe. Facing his own disappointment with Christianity, Jake must forsake the habits that have made his faith rote and rediscover the love that captured his heart when he first believed.

Compelling and intensely personal, SO YOU DON’T WANT TO GO TO CHURCH ANYMORE relates a man’s rebirth from performance-based Christianity to a loving friendship with Christ that affects all he does, thinks, and says. As John tells Jake, “There is nothing the Father desires for you more than that you fall squarely in the lap of his love and never move from that place for the rest of your life.

  3. Susan

    I love this book it is definitely a book I will keep to read over many times. I would say a heart changing book .

  4. Paul B.

    I thought I was supposed to read this book, and when I almost teared up by the third page I knew I was correct. There is a rare depth of understanding the mission of Jesus and of the church here, one that transcends the various ecclesial forms our gatherings may take. Even cherished house churches are put in their place as not, per se, the answer to our problems.

    A very rare book, which I could barely put down. I suggest that this should be adapted to make a movie. Done well, the appeal and impact would be enormous.

      Thanks, Paul. I’m touched by your words and grateful this book has resonated so deeply with the Spirit’s work in your heart. We’ve had someone trying to turn this into a movie for the past few years, but funding a movie that neither appeals to the “world” or to the “church-as-we-know-it” is not so easy. But we are giving it an honest try.
