This is a book review for Intelligent Church by Steve Chalke and Anthony Watkis. It’s subtitled ‘a journey towards Christ-centred Community’ which sounds great. The concept that the church is proof that God is love is a very attractive and compelling idea, although we all know in reality it often falls a long way short. The book is ok, if you’ve never read a book on this subject before it’s a good place to start. If you’ve read this author before or on this subject before then it’s a forgettable meal, I finished reading it a couple of weeks ago and already the memory of what it contained has faded. So use it as a starter but overall I wasn’t too impressed.
