I don't seem to fit in at church-is there something WRONG with me? Does God DISAPPROVE of me because I can't seem to get involved? I feel INSIGNIFICANT in church, and that leaves me feeling GUILTY. If church isn't working for me-maybe I should just GIVE UP ON GOD. Don't worry! You are not alone! You can survive! Church life can be a confusing business. Result-orientated churches can "fast-track" the most able and charismatic members, leaving the rest of us out in the cold. Intimidating hierarchies reduce our opinions to insignificance, and treat our feelings as of no consequence. Confused and guilty, we end up just "hanging on." It doesn't have to be this way. How to Survive in the Pharisee Church presents a message of hope from the teachings of Jesus Christ. Right from the very start, Jesus told us, the Pharisees have always pulled the strings in organized religion, and they always will. We shouldn't be surprised or discouraged by this, because GOD HAS A WAY THROUGH. Drawing on the personal experience of his oftentimes difficult religious journey, Norman Walford charts a path through the religious jungle. Whether you are an active church participant or a marginalized sideliner, this thought-provoking book will give you insight into the unspoken, yet often intense, silent suffering of many churchgoers in our congregations today.
