Kluck and Martin ground their reflections on hurt with biblical and theological reflections, particularly utilizing the works of C.S. Lewis, and include practical advice on what to do when readers realize they've hurt others or have been hurt themselves. This is an engaging look from two distinct viewpoints on dysfunction within church communities.

Synopsis

Sometimes, Church Hurts
 
The Church, the Bride of Christ. That description conjures up images of radiant white bride, eyes sparkling with peace and harmony, right? Maybe that’s why it’s such a gut-punch when that Bride behaves more like a grade school bully or a hot tempered drill sergeant.
 
What do you do with that reality, a reality that sometime hurts? Ted Kluck and Ronnie Martin aren’t interested in 140 characters of tweetable comfort. They’d rather share their own stories of being both the wounded and the wounder.  Plus they offer practical, yes-you-can-do-this steps to moving forward in those times not if, but when the Church hurts. 
 
Bride(zilla) of Christ is a verbal I.V. dripping with the mercy found only in Christ. Though you’ve been wronged, or perhaps wronged another, there is cause for great hope. The hurt is not the deepest thing. Grace is deeper still.
