In Against the Church, longtime pastor Douglas Wilson takes a hammer to some of our very favorite graven images, and (surprise, surprise) we've set up display cases for most of them in our churches: Liturgy, Tradition, Systematics, infant Baptism, and that crafty old Baal Doctrine.

Alongside a critique of philosophical assumptions about human nature, dualism, and grace, Wilson stresses the unavoidable and absolute necessity of individual hearts being born again. He concludes by laying out the case for the church. This isn't contradictory, though—the only way to be effectually for the church is to master the case against it. After all, God Himself is the ultimate iconoclast.

What People Are Saying:

"Not since Kierkegaard's Attack Upon Christendom has a theologian taken it upon himself to analyze comfortable and self-assured ecclesiastical assumptions as systematically as Douglas Wilson has in Against the Church. In his inimitably clear, intelligent, humorous, and deeply theological way, this book thankfully says to the zeitgeist: not so fast. Brace yourselves: this book is a wild ride. You'll want to read it as soon as you can because everyone will be talking about it." -Gregory Thornbury, president of The King's College and author of Recovering Classic Evangelicalism
