Book Review--CALLED TO STAY by Caleb Breakey
This is the first book I've read written specifically for people who are planning to leave their church and go hunting for another...or not. Or who have already left.
If you buy this book, fast forward to Part 3, Chapter 9, When to Leave. There you will find a what I think would have been well placed in Chapter 1; but then, I'm not the writer or the publisher. I like this chapter because it contains a checklist of when it might be actually needed for you to continue with plans to leave.
If your church passes the test, though, return to Chapter 1 and find out what do do to be a help, not a hindrance. Ever thought about being an infiltrator? Being one who helps the Lord breathe life into this ailing body? Benchwarmers--would you like to actually get into the game and help your church be a winner?
This book contains suggestions and challenges that won't be for the faint at heart or those who would rather sit back and let George do it. Frankly, that's why your church might be ailing. Too many let-Georges and too few go-get-'ems.
Try it. You might like it. Available from Christian Book Distributors, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobel.
