I read this book because I too am interested in re-emagining the Church. Not out of disillusionment but because the Church is so central to God's plan and we obviously miss the mark more than hit it. I do not care what reimagining looks like so long as we take positive steps towards the heart of God. I strained to find any value in this book to that end. I get the sense that the authors past hurts has distorted his ability to speak reasonably to this topic. I certainly could have benefited from healthy, honest conversation even if I did not end up at the same conclusion but I think this book lacked both. If you are stuck in the worst forms of institutionalized Church under the domineering authority of an ego maniac then read this -- it will help. If not, find another book
