Why Men Hate Going To Church By David Murrow

     This book is needed. In 223 pages and an easy to read format Murrow pins the problem facing the churches today. There just aren't enough men in our churches. And those we do have are feeling that they have no part or say in what goes on. Jesus meant for the church to be headed up by and run by dedicated male converts. The male must be understood and the programs geared to the male psyche.We must remember that Jesus taught for the male brain.
     Murrow points out that there is a gender gap in our groups. He lays the problem on the   perception people have that it is feminized. That is, more women than men are in charge of the outreaches in the church. Get the men involved and the growth in the fellowship will happen, is what Murrow suggests.
      I found this book to be very instructive. It must be useful because it is completely revised and updated for 2011.
     The author held my interest. This is a subject that the church leadership needs to have in thier libraries. Since it is not written in a text book style it can be loaned out to interested men in the fellowship. I feel that Murrow offers some ideas on how this can be done. It is worth the time spent in reading it.
