Church can sometimes be an intimidating thing. It can look like a building full of perfect people who have perfect lives. Not a place where someone who has messed up belongs. But that’s not true. The Church is God’s people who meet together because they love and need God, and love and need each other. Garrett Kell explains what the Church is, and why it matters whether we go or not.

There are few living pastors I respect more than Garrett Kell. His writing always helps me because it brims with sharp biblical insights and seasoned pastoral instincts. Church: Do I Have to Go? is no exception. I wish this book had existed when I was younger; I’m thrilled it exists now. Buy several copies and hand them out liberally.

It seems like the Church is to Christianity what silent letters are to words. Everyone knows it is necessary, but very few people know why.  Garret does the job of a good teacher—or maybe even a good mechanic. He takes apart the pieces that make up the church (one by one), shows their importance and necessity and puts them back together seamlessly. The end result is that the reader is more than just convinced of the church’s necessity, they become captivated by its beauty. Such a helpful resource for everyone who finds themselves walking through the front doors of any church.
