Publisher's Summary

The average Christian in America does not know what his own religion teaches, nor does he care. He may call himself “Christian”, but he lives his life exactly as he wishes, making no attempt to conform his conduct to the commands and tenets of his religion. Daily Wire writer Matt Walsh confronts his fellow Christians in this bold, clear-eyed book that serves as an urgent reminder of Matthew 7:13 - "For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it."

Better than I expected

Matt hits the bullseye with this book. He accurately describes what is wrong about the church, faith and many Christians today. Definitely an eye opener to my own life. A great book also for the unbelievers who are questioning and in the journey for Truth.

Fire and brimstone and cynicism

Given how Walsh eloquently rants with a degree of polished "been there done that" authority of a world-weary, jaded, somewhat bitter old man, you'd be surprised to discover that he is in fact a millenial. In what is a long form version of essentially one of his YouTube shows, which are often morose, neck-deep wades into the worst aspects of modern life making headlines that day, in Church of Cowards he makes largely the same interesting, albeit depressing points, for example: Addressing the uncomfortable truths that mainstream Christians in the USA are at best basically seen as delusional nerds with lousy taste in music and film and at worst pushy scam artists who in a mad rush to be seen as cool by their secular friends essentially become the same flea market traders that Jesus flipped the tables over in the Temple, that the United States of America isn't actually a Christian country, it's a secular country that just happens to have a lot of Christians in it and the tacit admission that without Satan, there would be no reason for Christianity (or technically any other abrahamic religion) to exist.
Church of cowards, once you get past the "preaching" really is a deep dive into the thoughts, feelings and philosophy of a man in his 30's who seems strangely unaware (or upset) that there's usually a perfectly adequate scientific explanation for everything he complains about... and there's nothing quite like a last minute death bed conversion.

Exceptional

Matt Walsh pulls no punches and provides the unapologetic truth about the deterioration of the church in the west and the love of one’s self we all have. The book provoked significant self reflection and a high emphasis on working towards strengthening ourselves in God, a book I would recommend to all Christian’s I know

Pleasant surprise

I approach The book not knowing that Matt Walsh was a radical Christian and full of scriptural knowledge. I was looking for a spiritual books that will shake me out of my complacency in my walk with Christ but I didn’t expect Matt Walsh to be the one delivering this book. You will not regret buying this book if you are Christian.
