  • Summary:

    ‘Dechurched’ people are those who have lost a faith they valued or left a faith community because of a bad experience. They are our coworkers, classmates, family members, even church members, whose wounds make it difficult for them to trust the church or in many cases even to believe in God.

    This trailblazing book is about reaching out to the dechurched to help them restore their damaged faith — and about how churches can repair the damages to their own faith that lead to dechurching.
