Loving God When You Don't Love the Church: Opening the Door to Healing

Chris Jackson (Author), Dutch Sheets (Foreword)

What do you do when you can't go back? When you have been hurt by fellow church members, it can seem as if you have nowhere to turn. Those who are supposed to bring you comfort are the ones who brought you pain.

Whether you have been wounded by a pastor or by someone in the pew, it can be hard to heal. Pastor Chris Jackson is honest about his own failings as well as those of the Church at large.

In Loving God When You Don't Love the Church, he opens up the path to healing and helps restore the wonder of a genuine relationship with Jesus' Bride. With humility, compassion and practical advice for healing and restoration, this book will touch those who have been hurt by the church and those who love them.
