An interesting new book on the place of men in church has just been released. David Murrow is director of Church for Men, an organization “dedicated to restoring a healthy, life-giving, masculine spirit in the local church.” His book, Why Men Hate Going to Church, is available in bookstores or can ordered online.
David writes that “Christianityâ€™s primary delivery system, the local church, is perfectly designed to reach women and older folks. Thatâ€™s why our pews are filled with them. But this church system fails to stir menâ€™s hearts, so men (especially masculine ones) stay away. ” The book also offers a blueprint for the successful church, and a “how-to-do-it book” for any father who loves and wants to disciple his sons. For a preview of the highlights, see this article. For more information, visit David’s website at www.churchformen.com.
