Publisher's Summary

Many people today, especially among emerging generations, don't resonate with the church and organized Christianity. Some are leaving the church and others were never part of the church in the first place. Sometimes it's because of misperceptions about the church. Yet often they are still spiritually open and fascinated with Jesus.

This is a ministry resource book exploring six of the most common objections and misunderstandings emerging generations have about the church and Christianity. The objections come from conversations and interviews the church has had with unchurched 20- and 30-somethings at coffee houses. Each chapter raises the objection using a conversational approach, provides the biblical answers to that objection, gives examples of how churches are addressing this objection, and concludes with follow-through projection suggestions, discussion questions, and resources.

    Story
    "Tells it like it is"
    If you could sum up They Like Jesus but Not the Church in three words, what would they be?

    "Simply the truth". Traditional and fundamental Christianity wants to believe that everyone believes (or should believe) that way they do. While the author doesn't believe that we should just like Jesus and not the church, this book tells why some people really do feel that way.


    What other book might you compare They Like Jesus but Not the Church to and why?

    unchristian by David Kinnamen


    Which character – as performed by Patrick Lawlor – was your favorite?

    NA


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Appreciated time to process it.

    "Interesting book not the best reader"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Patrick Lawlor’s performances?

    He uses a British accent when reading a comment he feels is enlightened and a Southern accent for a person he sees as traditional. I was offended by this and I'm not from the south.
