Free In Christ

Finding Freedom in the Churches of Christ

Reimagining Church: The Church Building

Much of what I had to say on this topic was said on my review of Pagan Christianity so I won’t repeat it all here.

I must say, though, that I think Frank Viola makes many points that Christians who attend meetings in a building should seriously consider. I really think that just the cost of owning and maintaining these buildings is typically unjustifiable for the Christian. Viola (using Barna research) states that between 9 to 11 billion dollars are spent by the Church on buildings each year. That is truly wrong. Even if people decide to meet in buildings, it is wrong that we are wasting so much money on something that has no significance whatsoever to our Christian faith.

Thanks to Present Testimony Ministries for giving me this book to review.
