What happened to our church?

This book is designed to inspire people to reconsider the “popular” trends in American churches today and discuss the matter with their fellow Christians. It is a book that John hopes people will read, either from the back row or the front. It is his hope readers will share the thoughts and questions with their fellow church leaders and members to decide if their church is on the right path.

A View From The Back Row: What Happened To Our Church? follows the road our churches have traveled from Jesus' time and shows how we have slowly, but surely, become more like the world than we realize. We need to regroup. Everyone worldwide needs what Jesus Christ offers; a reason to live today and hope for tomorrow.

About the Author
John Robbins grew up in a Christian family in the Detroit area. His family was very active in their local church. The normal routine was Sunday school, church, inviting someone home for dinner and then back to church for youth group and evening service. John has experienced church from every angle as a member, visitor, leader and in other areas of service; from changing diapers in the nursery to preaching, singing and teaching on Sunday morning. Going to church remains an important part of John’s lifestyle and faith. MORE

We live in a society that measures worldly success based on money, fame, position and accomplishments. In fact, typical Americans spend nearly 50 percent of their waking hours working. There is a thin line between owning our possessions and being owned by them. While we need money to meet our obligations, the Bible warns against “building our treasures” here on earth. The love of money can be a hindrance to our faith. Like the rich young ruler, our possessions can keep us from entering Heaven. MORE

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16
