With the average American church in decline, according to statistics, and many younger Christians not seeing the need for belonging to a church or being a committed attendee, noted author and pastor Joshua Harris tackles the very issue of church and the necessity of it in the simply stated book Why Church Matters.

Why Church Matters, is less a book on why one should join a church as it is more about the need to be plugged into a local church. Drawing from his own experiences as a pastor, Harris is able to show from a first-hand account the need to belong to a church; the main point being is that Jesus views the church as the vehicle to transform the world; a group of like-minded individuals joining together can do more than going on mission solo.

If you, as an active person in church or as one that has not fully committed to the idea of becoming actively involved in a church, Harris offers 10 questions to consider when selecting a church home. Because of the illustrations and stories that Harris draws from, Why Church Matters does not come across as an “in your face” read but one that is enjoyable and challenges both those that are in church and those that are Believers not active in church.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
