Why Men Hate Going to Church
by David Murrow
“Church is boring.”
“It’s full of hypocrites.”
You’ve heard the excuses —now learn the real reasons men and boys are fleeing churches of every kind, all over the world.
Christianity is the only world religion with a chronic shortage of men. David Murrow identifies the barriers to male participation, and explains why it’s so hard to motivate the men who do go to church. Then, he takes you inside several fast-growing congregations that are winning the hearts of men and boys.
The first release of Why Men Hate Going to Church sold more than 125,000 copies and was published in multiple languages. This edition is completely revised, reorganized, and rewritten, with more than 70 percent new content. Why Men Hate Going to Church does not call men back to church—it calls the church back to men.
“This is one of the most helpful books for understanding why men are indifferent toward church and how churches must change to welcome men.”
—MARK DRISCOLL, pastor of Mars Hill Church; cofounder of Acts 29 Church Planting; founder of The Resurgence
“[This] is a prophetic and relevant ‘snap-out-of-it’ masterwork that every pastor must read—not just for the sake of the kingdom, but also for his own sake and sanity in ministry.”
—KENNY LUCK, men’s pastor, Saddleback Church
“David Murrow knows how to connect with men. Where was this guy when I was twenty?”
—FRANK PASTORE, host of America’s largest
Christian talk show, KKLA (Los Angeles)
