The Church God Blesses (Softcover)
Jim Cymbala believes that God plays "favorites" with churches, blessing some more abundantly than others, giving them greater peace, joy, and power for ministry.
The Church God Blesses is a book about refusing to settle for less than God wants for your church. In it Jim Cymbala shares what he has learned, sometimes painfully, about building a church that God is blessing - not a church that has it all together or one that never makes mistakes or one that rarely encounters problems, but a church that daily experiences God's empowering presence.
As pastor of an inner-city congregation that has grown from a handful of people into a multi-ethnic beacon of hope, Cymbala shares exciting stories of how churches can change and grow through the grace of God, offering a fresh vision of what God wants to do in the church today.
