David Murrow attempts to answer the question on why men hate going to church. When I first received the book, Why Men Hate Going to Church, I had no idea about how much useful information I would be reading about men and church. Of course this is just one man’s thoughts on Why Men Hate Going to Church, but Murrow has some very good points addressing statistics, marketing, different types of men, and what most men like and don’t like. Some might say its stereotypical and that there is more to the issue than just how church is, but I must agree with this Murrow for the most part and his useful facts and suggestions. Murrow even relates it all the way up to the theology that is being taught in the churches and how men need to hear the Lion of Judah over the Lamb of God.

I am a young single man and even my age group is addressed. Murrow reveals the need for men and and made me want to get a group of my college buddies and go to church after we watch football next Sunday Night.

This book is a must read for pastors! Pastors should build their church with men as the groundwork. This book will be very useful with great statistics and facts on why men hate church and how a pastor can change things to bring more men in. Along with church leaders, women with husbands that don’t attend church should also read this book for great insight on how to address the issue. Two manly thumbs up!
