Book Review – Real Church



I really, really wanted to like Larry Crabb’s book Real Church: Does It Exist? Can I find it? – I really did. And I tried hard. But ultimately, it is yet another book from yet another disillusioned Christian begging the church to be something more than it is.

I found it ironic that in a book about how the church has become so focused on meeting people’s needs instead of sharing the gospel that Crabb spends whole chapters talking about what he needs the church to be.

Honestly, I do not know if it is my disillusionment with this kind of books that kept me from identifying with the author’s disillusionment. It might be. Regardless of the reasons, however, the Real Church just did nothing to stir me, said nothing that intrigued me, and ultimately left me struggling to finish it.
