Publisher's Summary

It's Sunday morning. Where are all the men? Golfing? Playing softball? Watching the tube? Mowing the lawn? Sleeping? One place you won't find them is in church. Less than 40 percent of adults in most churches are men, and 20 to 25 percent of married churchgoing women attend without their husbands. And why are the men who do go to church so bored? Why won't they let God change their hearts? David Murrow's groundbreaking new book reveals why men are the world's largest unreached people group. With eye-opening research and a persuasive grasp on the facts, Murrow explains the problem and offers hope and encouragement to women, pastors, and men. Why Men Hate Going to Church does not call men back to the church - it calls the church back to men.

This is an eye opener

OK. I start by saying, I lead a church in the UK.

This is a very interesting read/listen. There are a few cultural differences as you would expect between a man living in Alaska and a man living in East Sussex, (Not too much bear hunting goes on in these parts), but this should not get in the way of the overall message.

David Murrow carefully and skillfully handles a broad range of sociological data sets and eloquently explains the conclusions he draws from it all. This is not a book that attacks the church, nor women in church, but it carefully explains what church has become and why it appeals to a predominately female audience. Murrow identifies the real difficulty of achieving a balance of genders across the congregation and offers some frequently uncomfortable solutions.

If you are a church leader, listen to this book and suppress the instinct to be defensive, or perhaps that is just me. If you are normally in the congregation, ask your leader if they have read it and if not gift it to them. :o)
