Jesus Called

SOMETHING IS MISSING IN THE AMERICAN CHURCH. WHAT CAN RESTORE WHAT WE’VE LOST?

Filled with real-life examples, cautionary tales, and a takeaway idea on every page, Jesus Called—He Wants His Church Back is a reintroduction to the one thing that can restore what we’ve lost. Jesus.

As early as 50 AD, Christians had gotten away from knowing who Jesus really is. Our generation is no different. In every decade we, as Americans, lost something important that we couldn’t afford to lose:

In the 1950’s we lost innocence. In the 1960’s, we lost respect for authority. In the 1970’s, we lost love. In the 1980’s, we lost values. In the 1990’s, we lost faith. In the 2000’s, we lost security. In the 2010’s, we lost hope in the future.

Only Jesus can restore what we’ve lost. The Jesus who:

– Wants His enemies won over, not wiped out.

– Wants you to stop playing it safe.

– Believes great things are possible no matter what things are like now.

– Loves the church.

Jesus’ mission is clear – ​risk everything in order to take care of people, starting in our home, neighborhoods, cities, and those in need around the world. That’s the Jesus the American Church has missed and needs to meet.
