What if the church Jesus is building looks more like wildflowers strewn across an alpine meadow than a walled garden with manicured hedges? If, like many other people, you have questioned whether there is something more to Jesus' church than the religious institutions we've inherited after two thousand years, you'll want to read Finding Church. Here is straight talk from a man who has sought authentic New Testament community for more than fifty years and who has discovered it in the most unlikely places. Now Wayne wants to help you find this incredible bride Jesus is shaping by looking at the church as God sees her and by recognizing her as she takes shape around you. His church is a living temple, springing up in the individual heart and then knit into a worldwide community of people whose very relationships put God's glory on display. There's no way human effort can build it or sustain it, which is why our attempts fall so woefully short. She is the fruit of a new creation of men and women who live beyond the human conventions of society and share a life in Jesus that satisfies their most ardent hunger.… (mehr)

This book is for those who have left - or thought about leaving - their church congregations, but who are followers of Jesus who keep hoping for something more. It's also for those who don't understand the growing exodus from church congregations that has been happening, at least in the West, in recent years.

The author looks at some of the problems that can arise in both traditional and modern churches, and reasons why most organisations veer towards hierarchies, control, and large numbers of meetings. He acknowledges the importance of structure in short-term projects, and the value of church congregations for many people. This book is not an attempt to persuade anyone to leave their local church groups, but to encourage those who have already done so.

There are many Scriptural references, some anecdotes in the author's own life and journey, and a few answers to possible objections. There are also some helpful principles (NOT prescriptive in any way!) for moving forward, extending the Church (the Body of Christ worldwide and locally) and growing in love for God and other people without, necessarily, being tied to a Sunday morning gathering.

Possibly a tad dry in places, and sometimes a bit obvious - but overall I would recommend this very highly. ( )
