Item description for What's the Matter with the Church?: A Call to Renewal by William Willis...

These thoughts are intended as a critique of the Christian church--setting forth the weaknesses and problems as seen by the author, a retired mnister. He points out what he feels needs to be renewed and enlivened. This is not a simple case of "church bashing," but rather a genuine critique citing both its strengths as well as its weaknesses. As a deeply grateful, enthusiastic supporter and admirer of the church, the author stresses all the extraordinary accomplishments of the Church and then discusses where its strengths, contributions and achievements could be enhanced. The direction and character of the renewal that is proposed by these essays are made from the perspective of someone who has watched the mainline Church often reject or ignore many ideas and beliefs that it should embrace because they are popular among their funders or the Old Guard. He posits that genuine Christian Church renewal must proceed away from fundamentalist and conservative theology and insisting on maintaining the understandings, interpretations and values of the past that stand against change. A "new wineskin" of renewal is needed.

Reviews - What do customers think about What's the Matter with the Church??

Refreshing  Aug 11, 2007
Dr. Willis will restore the dreams of possibility not only to the faithful but to those of us that have become disenchanted with the church and religion. What's the Matter with the Church has given me hope and helped me to realize that we can not lump every church, minister, and believer into the same category. After reading this book I am considering going to church again, and I haven't been to church on a regular basis in more than 40 years.
