    The first half of this book focused on what s wrong with churches today This was actually thepowerful part of the book, and by inference gave a good description of what church should be Not just church as an organization, but individuals in the church.The second part of the book was still good, but a little disappointing and frustrating It tried to talk about the characteristics of a good church

    Most books, in one way or another, are about giving answers Not so with Larry Crabb s new book Real Church It doesn t give answers as much as it asks questions Good questions, important questions, about the nature of what Jesus envisions the church to be The kinds of questions that are rarely asked nowadays in the evangelical church, mainly because we assume we ve already got those questions answered,
