This is a second printing of the book, originally published in 2004 as Stop Dating the Church. Joshua Harris has provided us a a solid, Biblical theology of what the church is, it’s purpose, and a person’s relationship to it. He stresses a need for commitment and membership in the local church. It is a brief book and written in a straight-forward, easy-to-read style. He provides practical steps in how to choose a good church, how to prepare for Sunday morning, and how to benefit from the Sunday service in the coming week. Helpful discussion questions are provided in the end. This is an appropriate book as a gift for visitors or an intro/new members class as well as pastors and experienced church-goers looking to grow and have a deeper experience from church on Sunday.
