Pop Goes the Church

So I’ve been reading Tim Stevens blog for a few months now.  Check it out.  This dude rules.

Tim is the executive pastor at Granger Community Church in Indiana.  This guy is wicked smart and has a passion for Christ and the Church that is incredible.  I’m currently reading his book Pop Goes the Church and it rules.  I’m actually reading it right now as I blog in Panera.  Check it out!


If you haven’t already left your laptop or work station to get this from the book store you need to.  I even linked the title of the book to amazon so if you’re busy you can toss it in your online shopping cart and have it shipped to your front door.

Tim, if you’re reading this by chance, thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  Keep it up man.  I dig your love for Christ.  I dig your love for the church.

Who are you currently reading?  Leave a comment.  I’d love to know!


  1. Hey Josiah! Our staff and elders are currently reading “Simple Church” thanks to Christy, our children’s minister. I think every church could use an evaluation every now and then, especially in a culture that changes so much and just keeps getting busier and busier. I love the idea of the church being “simple” in that it helps you and your congregation get rid of the clutter in the church (the things that do not help you accomplish your mission) and FOCUS on the things that do. Good book. We are thankful for Christy for introducing it to us.

  2. Whats up Dawg! Sweet i’ll have to check that out fo sho! After i finish reading for the 2nd time. Wild at Heart by John Eldredge

  3. Awesome stuff. Neff, I read Wild at Heart on a flight one day and it was awesome!

    Angie, I’m googling “Simple Church” right now…Eric is the exec. pastor at cf miami which is right down the road. I’ve heard good things.

    Thanks for sharing! Keep em coming people, I’ve got an empty spot in my bag for another book!

  4. I’m reading The Blue Parakeet by Scott McKnight… Lovin it.

    Best book I have read in a long time is How Not To Speak of God by Peter Rollins. There will be nothing in that book that you have thought about before reading it. Totally fresh.

  5. awesome Jared….I dig fresh…i’ll pick it up tomorrow

  6. Josiah — thanks for the props. Sorry you somehow got a copy of my book with a backwards cover. 🙂 Who knows, maybe it will be worth lots of money someday.
