If God had it His way, what would your church look like? The New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Love challenges readers to be the Church as God intends. Do you want more from your church experience? Does the pure gospel put you in a place of awe? Are you ready to rethink church as you know it? Sit with Pastor Francis Chan and be reminded that you are a part of something much bigger than yourself, something sacred. In his most powerful book yet, Chan digs deep into biblical truth, reflects on his own failures and dreams, and shares stories of ordinary people God is using to change the world. Chan says, “We’ve strayed so far from what God calls Church. We all know it. We know that what we’re experiencing is radically different from the Church in Scripture. For decades, church leaders like myself have lost sight of the inherent mystery of the Church. We have trained people sitting in the pews to become addicted to lesser things. It’s time for that to change.” When Jesus returns, will He find us caring for His Bride—even more than for our own lives? Letters to the Church reminds us of how powerful, how glorious the Church once was … and calls us to once again be the Church God intended us to be.

In short, Paul's letters to Timothy are God's letters to you and me and the church today. I pray this book will be a means by which God speaks to encourage, counsel, warn, and rebuke, where necessary.

Paul's letters to Timothy, written so long ago, may seem out of touch with Christianity today. After all, things have changed since the first-century church, or have they? The truth of the matter is that the counsel and warnings Paul gave Timothy are present truth for our own time. Warnings given by Paul match the conditions found in the religious world today. His counsel regarding personal commitment and fidelity still remain the path of the true child of God.Paul's counsel to Timothy and the churches in the first century of the church, if followed, would still work to set things in order. In short, Paul's letters to Timothy are God's letters to you and me and the church today. I pray this book will be a means by which God speaks to encourage, counsel, warn, and rebuke, where necessary.

Letters to the Church seeks to help compassionate, thoughtful Christians regain our bearings and find our voice and courage for honest, hopeful conversations in this de-centering era of Trump.

A critical presidential election looms before us. Whether you love Donald Trump or despise him, most everyone agrees that he masterfully keeps people and the country off-balance. His acerbic rhetoric, divisive priorities, and erratic leadership foster further division and widespread anxiety. That causes some Americans to go in search of any candidate who can defeat him in the upcoming election. For others, though, Trump’s brash style, anti-establishment platform, hardline policies, and “Make America Great Again” promises are reasons to support him and work enthusiastically for his reelection. Letters to the Church seeks to help compassionate, thoughtful Christians regain our bearings and find our voice and courage for honest, hopeful conversations in this de-centering era of Trump. These conversations will help recenter the church for faithful discernment, courageous imagination, and constructive engagement in the broader community. By doing so, the church can renew its own life and model what conversation and participation can look like in a time otherwise characterized by extremism, suspicion, fear, and gridlock. Geared for use by both individuals and church study groups, the letters are organized into three sections: “What We are Experiencing Now,” “What We Hope For,” and “What We are Called To.”
