Quick Overview:

Young people are leaving the church. We all know that. They love Jesus but not the church. They think church is irrelevant, dated, unnecessary, divided, and hurtful. And they aren't entirely wrong. Yet church is also a place of healing, community, joy, hope, and redemption. This softcover book explores what the church can offer 21st century cities, and makes the case for why church still matters in an increasingly post-religious context.
WHAT IS THE POINT OF CHURCH? REALLY? Sacred Roots is for anyone questioning the value of church to their everyday life. 'Why should I invest myself in something I'm not sure does any good?' Many people today are asking this question about the church. Maybe you're asking it too. 'Does church matter?' is an important question. And to answer it, perhaps we need to go back to where it all began. The early church was a powerhouse of communal love, self-giving, and service. So how do we rediscover these sacred roots? And how do we recover the purpose of the church in all its beauty? Sacred Roots offers four personal and communal shifts critical to being the kind of church that transforms people---and renews the world. Sacred Roots is part of the FRAMES series - short yet meaningful reads on the top issues facing us in today's complex culture. A new kind of book brought to you by Barna Group, to help you read less, and know more. To sign up for updates about FRAMES, see videos, and learn more about these products, visit
