Loving the Church by John CrottsLoving the Church reminds us how glorious God’s family really is, and the countless ways that you can flourish within it. In recent years the family has experienced a revival within Christian culture, but with this increased emphasis on the importance of the family, less value has been placed on God’s family, the church. One of the most important relationships for all Christians is their involvement in God’s family. Loving the Church lays the vital foundation for applying his glorious plan to our own lives.

Follow the story of five friends as they wrestle with important questions about the church. After each of their discussions about the church, the author leads the reader to understand the beauty and joy of being a member of the household of God.

Praise for Loving the Church:

“Recovering and reaffirming the centrality of the church in God’s redemptive plan has never been more urgent than it is today. In Loving the Church, John Crotts calls us to renew our understanding of the church biblically and to demonstrate faithfulness to her. This book reminds us that there is no greater joy on earth than to be in God’s family, the church.”
—Tony Carter, Pastor, author of On Being Black and Reformed

“Before I was halfway through the book, I was thoroughly convinced of how much the Lord loves his church and how much I should love it, too! Loving the Church is a welcomed resource that clearly presents the value of the local church as God’s plan for his people to grow, serve, and worship him. This book is engaging in style and clear in its explanation of pertinent scriptures. I really liked it and I highly recommend it!”
—Martha Peace, Biblical Counselor, author of The Excellent Wife

    Awesome book!

  • Loving the Church, by John Crotts, is a short read, only 135 pages, that defines the purpose of the church. Crotts starts out the book with a fictional story which piques the reader’s interest. The characters of story meet in a coffee shop and begin to discuss and research the meaning of the church. Each character represents real-life people and situations of today’s church body. The book then transitions into a well written biblical description of the church. Crotts explains some reasons why people leave the church and what the role of each member of the church is, as well as the role of the church body. Throughout the book, the reader will gain scripture based knowledge about the church as well as a new sense of appreciation for the Bride of Christ. The reader will also learn about the importance of his or her role in the church and why it is so important for Christians to gather together. This book is definitely a must-read for every Christian!
