Why Men Hate Going To Church By David Murrow

Being in the ministry,one can't help but wonder the number of men versus women in the church. For a long time i have often wondered if lack of leadership or submission has cause this predicament.As I read this book I thought about my church and other churches I've visited. I realized that all Christian religions have two things in common: Worship the same God and we have the same type of people. A Church dominated by women and men who hate being there“ There are two kinds of people in the church; the pillars and the caterpillars. the pillars uphold the church with their prayers; their work and their donations. they build the kingdom of God by the sweat of their brows. The caterpillars crawl in Sunday morning, sing a few songs, listen to a sermon and crawl out again , not to be seen for a week.” Because some many of the pillars of the church are women, “ imagine the chaos if every woman took Sunday off?”. Who do I recommend read this book? Any person who is serious about helping men find their places and maintain what God has given them. Men and women working together; side by side for the gospel of Jesus; no one left out. Men could also benefit from reading this book to see some of the “invisible” influences that have been affecting them. Overall, this was a very honest and much-needed book. Although the book is full of black and white categories and over-generalizations, the author has done his homework and as someone who has been intimately involved with church my entire life, there's just no questioning some of his observations and conclusions.  I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
