Product Description
Has your church been hijacked?

Millions of people in their fifties, sixties and seventies feel their churches have been hijacked by church-growth movements characterized by loud praise bands, constant PowerPoint presentations and cavernous megachurches devoid of any personal touch.  They are bewildered by the changes and are dropping out after thirty, forty or fifty years in a congregation.  It's a crisis!

In this fictional story, pastor and author, Gordon MacDonald, uses topical examples and all-too-familiar characters to reassure readers that it is possible to embrace change and to  demonstrate how that change can actually be a positive influence in their church.  The church, he says, has always been in a state of change; it has been changing for the last two thousand years.  It is time to embrace that change and use it to further the Kingdom of God.

Features and Benefits:

  • Now available in trade paper.
  • Author uses fiction to engage the reader and change the heart.
  • Discussion questions included at the end of each chapter.
  • Promotes understanding between generations.
  • Who Stole My Church was given and Award of Merit in the category of Church/Pastoral Leadership in the 2009 Christianity Today Book Awards.
