Publisher's Summary

It's Sunday morning. Where are all the men? Golfing? Playing softball? Watching the tube? Mowing the lawn? Sleeping? One place you won't find them is in church. Less than 40 percent of adults in most churches are men, and 20 to 25 percent of married churchgoing women attend without their husbands. And why are the men who do go to church so bored? Why won't they let God change their hearts? David Murrow's groundbreaking new book reveals why men are the world's largest unreached people group. With eye-opening research and a persuasive grasp on the facts, Murrow explains the problem and offers hope and encouragement to women, pastors, and men. Why Men Hate Going to Church does not call men back to the church - it calls the church back to men.

An honest view of church from a man's perspective

I really liked this book. While I think it was not as bold nor did it go as far as I think it should have, at least it raised an honest point about how church is custom made for women with small children and kryptonite for men.

If you are a Christian man and wonder why you have a hard time getting amped up for church and how to fix it - this book is a great place to start.

Reader was a bit low key for the material.

Yes, We Men Need to be Involved

What did you love best about Why Men Hate Going to Church?

The author takes off the gloves and delves straight to the point even making me feel a bit uncomfortable at first. That, I found out quickly, was because I had been brought up in Church. Yet I was longing for this information.

What did you like best about this story?

David does tackle the subject but he keeps reassuring us readers that his intention is not to create a male-dominated church but to include men and so let the church grow naturally by their inclusion and involvement.

What about Erik Synnestvedt’s performance did you like?

Erik reads very well. Keeps a good balance between not boring and not too expressive.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Perhaps, but once delving into the content I realized it's length was necessary to develop the topic and teach as well as lead me to a full understanding of it. This helped encourage and challenge me so that I wanted to read the whole while creating a list of what needed to be done by me and in the church.

Any additional comments?

A must read for all Christian men. Women, you really should read this too! My wife enjoyed hearing this and saw quickly the ways that the Church has left men out.
