Whether your relationship needs minor strengthening or major repair, this book will encourage you, strengthen you, and assist you in chasing down the marriage of your dreams.

What do you do when you can’t go back? When fellow church members have hurt you, it can seem as if you have nowhere to turn. Those who are supposed to bring you comfort are the ones who brought you pain. Whether it’s a pastor that has wounded you or someone in the pew, it can be hard to heal. Pastor Chris Jackson is honest about his own failings as well as those of the Church at large. In Loving God When You Don’t Love the Church, he opens up the path to healing and helps restore the wonder of a genuine relationship with Jesus and His church. With humility, compassion and practical advice for healing and restoration, this book will touch both those who have been hurt by the church, and those who love them.
