Who Stole My Church by Gordon Macdonald
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
This book was first published in 2007, but is still relevant today. The format is intriguing. It is a series of discussions amongst older members of a church who feel that their church has been stolen from them. Churches have changed over the years. Who Stole My Church discusses the need for different generations to work together, and to understand that they have common needs and goals.
The characters are fictitious, but their concerns about change and transformation are very real. The issues that are dealt with provide vehicles for discussion for groups attempting to navigate their way through change.
How does our church grow? How does it meet the needs of different generations? Perhaps this book will help guide other churches as they strive to maintain their faith and impact their communities.
