What is Church? A few years ago, to a Christian that might have seemed an insincere question. Today, our confidence is shattered. The Church has become known for judgmentalism, hypocrisy, and conflict. It’s more than an image problem. In this book Dub Karriker challenges the reader to deconstruct our faltering understanding of the human institution of church so that we may rediscover what is genuine and eternal.

The reported decline of the church is no joke. It is happening in many places around the world today. But why, and what can we do about it? The institution that has stood so long was never supposed to be an institution in the first place! This book addresses the source of the frustrations and disappointments many people experience when they encounter what passes for the church today, by reminding us of what God’s plan for Jesus and His church has been all along. Addressing both biblical and historical contexts, What Is Church? provides hope through a rediscovered and revitalized community of God’s people being who God created us to be.
