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.

Believing in and following the Word of God can make a great difference in our lives. The author, having had several church memberships in the past and having been a long-time servant of God, discusses the many issues and problems that churches across America are facing. He strictly builds upon the belief that the resolution and solution to these problems can only be achieved by absolute obedience to God's written Word. Prude discusses in an elaborate yet simple manner the ten palpable issues that God's churches have fallen deeply into. But more to that, he offers some real solutions to them while making sure that his ideas are clearly understandable, and that people will be better Christians than they are. A Letter to the Churches of America, by George Prude, examines the current problematic plight of the churches across America and gives biblically grounded solutions to the dilemma.
