Five Star Reviews of Unchurching

The vast majority of the reviews for Unchurching are all five-star reviews. Here's just a small sampling.

"Far from being the diatribe of a church-basher, this well thought out, easy to follow book is a sensitive and loving look at the Bride of Christ and her role in God's plan." (Except from this review.)

"I was struggling for a while with institutionalized church, though my faith was unwavering- and this book has helped me navigate that feeling and reminds me that there is a community of people with similar thoughts." (Excerpt from this review.)

"This book has helped me vocalize what I've felt for years but just couldn't find the words to explain it." (Excerpt from this review.)

"Unchurching is easy to read. The context is plain and simple, its scope is profound." (Excerpt from this review.)

"This is a book I'd feel comfortable and plan on giving to several close friends and family to help them understand why I haven't lost my sanity by choosing not to 'go to church.'" (Excerpt from this review.)

"I enjoyed reading Unchurching so much I read it twice. The book was a joy to read because it was so un-condemning in its approach to what the church was meant to be." (Excerpt from this review.)

"This book has officially taken the top spot as my current favorite on the topic. I almost burned dinner the night that I began reading it because I couldn't put it down." (Excerpt from this review.)

"I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has or is questioning whether church meetings and church corporations need to be the way they are--or even if they should!" (Excerpt from this review.)

"Richard has really colored in and defined what was so gray with my thoughts and feelings I have been experiencing. I am no longer trying to nail jello to the wall!" (Excerpt from this review.)

"Unchurching helps clarify the journey and cuts through all the hype and tradition of the organized church that will birth something fresh and biblical." (Excerpt from this review.)
