DALLAS, March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dallas author Mike Moore is driving a much-needed wedge between the people who love "church" and those who love God with his new book Love God Hate Church: Moving Past the "Dos & Don'ts."
The American church is at crossroads. Millennials are leaving in record numbers. While they're avoiding Sunday services, they haven't abandoned the idea of God altogether. "It's just that they'd rather talk about God over two beers on Saturday than in a church building on Sunday," Mike says.
Church is too often a place where broken people feel judged rather than welcomed and accepted. Millennials are leaving church because, for decades, religious leaders have upheld lifestyle choices as the measure of a Christian life, rather than the gospel message of God's unconditional, transformative love through Christ.

As a result, churches everywhere can't seem to keep Millennials from leaving. Love God Hate Church explains what churches should do about it: focus on hearts rather than dictate actions. Mike says it's obvious why Millennials won't go to church. "They're sneered at for having a couple of tattoos, and they're shunned for being gay before they make it to the front door."
Love God Hate Church is purposefully provocative. It's a passionate call to stop focusing on "dos and don'ts," and instead share God's amazing love.
