A practical approach to address spiritually crippling disappointment with the church!
Feeling disappointment with your church can be spiritually devastating.

Living Faithfully with Disappointment in the Church uses a theological basis to lay a foundation of understanding, and then provides real strategies from a family therapy perspective to deal with personal disappointments in the church.
