The rest of the book has proven to be as theologically solid and Biblically based.
J. Frederick
It is written from the perspective of a man who is earnestly seeking the face of God and His will with none of the frills and trimmings of modern Christianity.

This book helped us put into perspective what we were feeling and experiencing, helping us to find direction in our confusion.

I couldn't put it down. In fact, I've read it twice more since. It seemed I had found someone else that verbalized the sentiments I had, relative to my overall "church" experience. Wayne does an excellent job of not only putting this in writing, but motivates and provokes the reader to move toward the intimate relationship with God for which we all really do look. Should be required reading for every Believer! Pass it on.

Pastor Jacobsen writes openly and honestly about the problems confronting todays church and Christianity in general. It is written from the perspective of a man who is earnestly seeking the face of God and His will with none of the frills and trimmings of modern Christianity.A very "Back to the Basics" book. Next to my Bible, this is my most valued book in my library. I keep having to buy new copies as I loan them out to pastors and never see them again!!! I recommend VERY highly!

I've been a Christian for almost 7 years. Like all people trying to be good Christians I've attended the services, prayer meetings, Wednesday nights, etc. I've wondered why I can't get excited about what's going on at church. I've wondered why I struggle to find God in the midst of all the to-do lists, nursery service, usher duty and fill-in-the-blank Bible studies. I have finally quit going to a lot of it because it left me feeling so empty. I've wondered why there aren't more people around to actually disciple the new believers???

I've felt guilty and like a bad Christian for so long, having been told that my lack of participation and my self-centeredness is why I feel empty and depressed. I finally decided to stop just accepting that answer and go searching for the truth. Here, God has handed me a significant piece of it. If this describes you, know that it's not all your fault, maybe most of it ISN'T your fault. Read this book!!

Ever felt like you're on the outside looking in? Why do those church programs look so good when it feels to you like it's all for show? This heart-felt, Scripture-based plea for intimacy is a must for those who are seeking to know more of what God wants the church to be.

I don't want to be long winded so I will sum up this review by saying this a significant book for any stage of your walk. It is not just an "anti" book railing against what exists. It asks the important questions about our general disatisfaction and then moves you into extremely practical steps towards increasing your intimacy with the Lord. It does do a great job of forcing us to look at things as they truly are, the use of the Emperor's New Clothes analogy is powerful and extremely pertinent. If you are considering it, get this book and read it.

I ran across this book while struggling with the concept of salvation I kept hearing preached. The chapter in this book that talks about salvation puts it back in the framework of relationship, removing the "fire-insurance" framework often taught.

The rest of the book has proven to be as theologically solid and Biblically based.

My husband and I have been struggling with the organized church. This book helped us put into perspective what we were feeling and experiencing, helping us to find direction in our confusion. It sorted out questions we were having and gave us direction for our future involvement with church. Also, finding that the desire we have for "more" is not some vague idea we were experiencing. It has substance in a deeper intimacy with our God and can be found on an individual basis. God's love became more real and experiential. Want a deeper walk into the heart of God? We suggest Wayne Jacobsen's book, The Naked Church.
