Rob Bentz, a pastor at Woodmen Valley Chapel, and the author of the new book, The Unfinished Church: God’s Broken and Redeemed Work-in Progress, will preach in our morning service on Sunday, July 13, at 9:00 AM. Following the service, there will be a book signing.
About The Unfinished Church
“I love Jesus but hate the church.”
We hear this kind of talk all the time, but what if it’s profoundly mistaken? Rob Bentz challenges readers to rethink this popular—yet ultimately harmful—mentality.
Drawing on his experience as a pastor, Bentz helps those disenchanted with the church to rediscover its importance for the Christian life by examining the biblical, theological, and historical reasons why Christ’s followers should embrace gospel-centered community—even when it’s hard.
Honest yet hopeful, The Unfinished Church provides an encouraging look at God’s ultimate building project: his church.
Here is a deep yet accessible book that paints a vivid doctrine of the church. Bentz’s wide interaction with theologians and pastoral insights will benefit all readers. Excellent discussion material at the end of each chapter makes it ‘small-group friendly,’ and his warm and hopeful responses may soften hardened critics of the bride of Christ. I highly recommend The Unfinished Church.
