Have you ever felt out of place in the world of church and Christianity? Have you ever wondered if Jesus would even attend a church today? For many people, both those whom are Christians and those who aren't---the church can often seem like a very strange group of people. And Christians sometimes act in ways that are very unlike the Jesus they claim to follow. As a punk/rockabilly musician, Dan Kimball never expected that he would be interested in Christianity, but an encounter with a small group of elderly Jesus followers started him on a journey that would challenge him to rethink everything he had ever assumed about the church. In this book, you'll read the questions Dan faced as he decided whether to be part of a church or not. Such as what Jesus and the Scriptures have to say about 'organized religion' and a surprising twist about what the Scriptures say about Christians being judgmental. You learn that despite the messes it has made, Jesus does care about the church because the church is not a building, but people. A beautiful mess of broken people learning to follow Jesus together. Kimball challenges Christians to break the understandable stereotypes and together make change in the church. And to be church as Jesus intended it to be: a community of forgiven misfits coming together to serve the world around them with passion, creativity, innovation, and grace.
