A viral Books Franchising McChurch: Feeding Our Obsession with Easy Christianity I'm conflicted: I think much of their basic message needs to be considered, but I would be happy to find another book that says it better.This book seems to suffer for several reasons, making it hard to articulate what's lacking. It tries to do too many things. The McMetaphor sometimes gets in the way more than it helps. The better alternative to what's criticized is not laid out clearly enough. There were things I expected that either weren't there, were abbreviated, or were in a different place. And sometimes I found myself bristling a little at the tone of the criticism, even though I mostly line up with their view of "easy Christianity" in general and multisite churches in particular. I wondered how the book would convince any in the multisite/seeker-driven audience except those holding lightly to the most superficial set of preferences. On the other hand, the dangers they point to are serious, and the uglier aspects of consumer Christianity aren't just areas where we should 'agree to disagree.'White and Yeats make some good points and do so unapologetically. But I wonder if anyone has written about these issues (esp multisite) more artfully or convincingly.

  1. I m conflicted I think much of their basic message needs to be considered, but I would be happy to find another book that says it better.This book seems to suffer for several reasons, making it hard to articulate what s lacking It tries to do too many things The McMetaphor sometimes gets in the way than it helps The better alternative to what s criticized is not laid out clearly enough There were things I expected that either weren t there, were abbreviated, or were in a different place And som [...]


  2. An extremely robust Evangelical critique of modern church practices, particularly the multi site campus movement.The authors use McDonald s as the metaphor to discuss the tendency in modern Evangelicalism toward efficiency, higher numbers, the entertainment experience, and the association of church membership and participation in terms of consumption rather than shared effort They critique the move away from effectiveness toward efficiency, as if efficiency is really the goal they warn against t [...]


  3. Definitely a good book and a very pertinent read for those in American church leadership Having worked at churches in the past, I ve seen the desire of pastors and workers to grow, but it does often come across as growing a brand or being overly concerned about trivial things I ve also seen churches that are honestly serving God, but outgrow their facilities A church that I was a part of for four years is now doing the campus method and while I don t know how it s going currently, I know that it [...]


  4. I knew that the American church was in trouble, but never in this depth.Ministers paying non religious writers to pen their sermons or out right stealing them Churches based off motivational talking superstars, who become sort of a miniature pope over their multisite congregation It s a wonder, and a sure sign of God s love and patience, that The Lord hasn t struck the country into the sea at this point especially since this book is already 5 years old Deeply engaging, McChurch shows us the root [...]


  5. I found this book to be extremely thought provoking The prolific use of scripture to call into question many of today s American church practices has started to explain some of my own questions and discomfort Although targeted to Pastors, this is a book for anyone who wonders why many of our churches don t look like they did a few years ago, and rarely like the Bible describes Whether or not you agree with the premise, it s worth the read if you care about God s bride.


  6. There are some timely warnings for the American church here, but I would have liked to see Scriptural backing for their observations The McDonald s metaphor was appropriate but overshadowed the message, which is oddly one of the McChurch dangers they warn about.


  7. I m sympathetic to the concerns of these authors having been part of a multi site church but their attempt to critique this methodology is not particularly well thought out It resembles a potpourri of random thoughts than a fully developed argument.


  8. Rating 3.25White and Yeats look at the American Church to try to figure out where the disconnect is Their problem with some churches looking to connect with people has cheapened the experience If Churches become highly efficient programs sometimes that doesn t leave time for the true spiritual needs of the congregation If the Church is just becoming a trendy hangout following the latest trends it may miss out on developing mature believers By choosing to have multiple services with different wor [...]


  9. Franchising McChurch Feeding Our Obsession With Easy Christianity is a very thought provoking book It illustrates how the McDonaldization of many churches has come to be, and how easy it is to be sucked in it This book is like eating a Home cooked meal that your Grandma made just after you had McDonald s for lunch It is mainly written to Pastors and Church leaders but the individual person can learn a lot from it too One of the best features of this book is the Drive Thru sections at the end of [...]


  10. Pretty poignant book critiquing megachurches Much could be said and needs to be said I think one area of need is addressing Church consumers to the actual consumers themselves The last chapter sort of addresses this.Of course, they have little consumeristic incentive to read it, but people should learn to think about how they can serve in a particular church.


  11. This was a very solid book I enjoyed reading it and thinking through its ideas It was neither pretentious nor condescending If you want a short, sturdy book about the multi site church movement, then I d take a look at this.
