Dan Kimball used to think that the church was a very strange group---certainly not something he ever would want to be part of Then one day, while playing in a punk and rockabilly band in London, Dan discovered a tiny elderly church of loving people who began to change his mind. With them, he was able to begin exploring the uncomfortable questions and negative perceptions about Christianity that he had---and he found that not everything he thought was actually true. In this book, Dan tells the story of some of the odd and strange encounters he had with Christians that caused him to want nothing to do with the church. Yet, despite these negative experiences, he found himself continually drawn to the truth about God and the person of Jesus Christ. Kimball explains that the church is more than an organized religion; it's a beautiful mess of broken people learning to follow Jesus together. He challenges Christians to move beyond the judgmental, critical responses to the world that often lead to stereotypes and parodies and fail to communicate the good news of Jesus. There is another side to the church---a Christianity beyond the stereotypes. Kimball shows us that the church is a community filled with beauty and wonder and explains why an essential part of following Jesus is involvement in a local church where God is at work changing lives. He encourages us to break out of the Christian bubble we so easily create around our lives and to engage in mission with those outside the church, yet to do it in a way that isn't awkward, confusing, or weird.
