Mere Churchianity
Finding Your Way Back to Jesus-Shaped Spirituality
by Aleathea Dupree | Genre: Christian Living
Release Date: June 2010
 

Jesus has gotten lost in institutional Christianity. Those who have left the church to find Jesus are on the right track.

Pastors and other Christian leaders have long known that a generation is missing from the pews on Sunday morning. Impressive numbers of young adults have left organized Christianity in search of spiritual meaning. In response, church leaders have tried to make the church more relevant, welcoming, and culturally connected, without realizing that it's Jesus who is missing.

Michael Spencer, known among 700,000 readers of his blog "the Internet Monk," points out that Jesus has left the church, and those who seek him outside the building have made the right decision. Spencer shows readers how to find Jesus and authentic Christian community without the distractions of organized religion.

Don't judge a book by it's title? | Posted April 23, 2013
 To most Christians, Michael Spencer’s Mere Churchianity may seem to be a scary book.  And it is if you focus less on a relationship with Jesus and more on churchianity, or a “church-dependent religion.” (186)  This book should come with a warning to not be quick to judge.  I fear that most would start reading and assume that Michael Spencer is against Christianity or even Christian communities in general.  This however is not the case.  I believe that he has a ministry that is reaching out to people that most Christians miss.  Those that are leaving the church, not because they don’t believe in God, but because they don’t believe in what “His followers” are doing.  And the reason why Christians miss this people group is because they are the ones pushing them away.  Spencer gives the reader the freedom to actually read your bible and grow in a relationship with God that is in no way dependent on other people.  He also highly encourages you to find a community.  Maybe it’s not the typical Christian community most call the church; it could be as simple as a community consisting of all the neighborhood moms.  So find a Jesus-shaped spirituality and read this book, maybe you’ll find your own journey.
