Why We Love the ChurchDuring the last semester at Prairie, I read a book called, “Why we’re not emergent,” by Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck. Within the first few pages I knew I would enjoy their work. This prompted me to pick up another book written by this duo called, “Why we love the church.”

Kevin DeYoung is the senior pastor at University Reformed Church in East Lansing, Michigan. Ted Kluck is an award-winning sportswriter, and attends University Reformed Church.

J.I. Packer responds to this book with these words:

Two young men, a pastor and a layman, here critique the criticisms of the institutional church that are fashionable today. Bible-centered, God-centered, and demonstrably mature, they win the exchange hands down. As I read, I wanted to stand up and cheer.

I look forward to reading this book over the next week or so. I’ll post some thoughts as I’m reading and a review once I’m done.
