Review: The Church Awakening

The Church Awakening
An Urgent Call for Renewal
by Charles R. Swindoll

The Church Awakening is about the postmodern church.  Mr. Swindoll talks about the problems the Church is facing and how the Church is dealing with issues in the postmodern culture we are living in.  He points out how incorrectly some believers are dealing with them as well solutions to the problem.

The book starts out with where we are a Church.  Then Mr. Swindoll identifies challenges, struggles, solutions, and priorities, using the rest of the book to hash out those themes.

I really enjoy Mr. Swindoll's point of view on the issue and his transparency of how his church has failed in this very issue and what they have done to turn things around.  Directing believers back to the Bible and solutions from Scripture to be relevant in the society we are living in as believers.  The book itself is an easy to understand and is written for the layperson or a pastor.

If you would like to read a part of The Church Awakening to get a taste for the material there is a Book Browse available.

I was provided a free copy of this book from The Hatchette Group for the purposes of review, the opinions expressed are my own.
