Overview

As a parish priest, Ian Stuchbery has become increasingly concerned about the declining number of worshippers at many Christian churches. What is it that has led so many to drift away from the church? Is it because going to church has become a cultural habit that has little attraction in today's society? Experiencing God in a Secular World emphasizes that this fundamental aspect of Christianity should not become a social habit but a profound expression of one's faith and love in God. Stuchbery aims to speak to those who are questioning their faith and are tempted to drift away from their churches. This work tenderly reveals just what is truly at the heart of the Christian faith and explains the powerful relevance this knowledge has in today's world.
