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.
