To readers who may doubt the necessity of a book like “Killing the Church: The Failure to Confront” (published by WestBow Press), author, pastor and missionary Dr. Jeff Parker says plainly “The failure to confront is killing the church and every relationship you hold dear.”

Killing the Church” is for church leaders and the countless men and women who value truth and honesty in relationships. Confrontation is critical, and helps address areas of life which may be unpleasant yet crucial to both spiritual maturity and real happiness.

After 35 years in the ministry, seeing men and women frustrated over the lack of change in their lives, Parker knows the desperate need for his book. “It became clear to me that the church would have to step up and be what she has been throughout history, a ‘voice of truth’ both to her members and more so to society in general.”
