New book "Killing the Church" tackles controversy in communication, the need for honesty

Confronting a problem - especially between loved ones - is no easy task. According to Dr. Jeff Parker and his new book Killing the Church, it is important to have a “voice of truth” to address areas of life that may be difficult to talk about, but are critical to well-being.

Killing the Church is a conversational yet direct call to action that encourages readers to initiate communication on important topics within the church and in personal relationships. Using his own experience, Bible passages and relatable situations, Dr. Parker focuses on the need to address problems honestly and directly, but with grace.

“This book is the result of serving in a myriad of positions from U.S. Army chaplain to missionary on two continents, as well as a pastor,” says Dr. Parker. “So many church members never seem to change and are forever lost in the same behavioral patterns that have dictated much of their lives due to a lack of honest dialogue. That’s a concern that needs to be addressed.”
