Julian Sengelmann, born 1982 in Hamburg, is a German actor, musician and - above all - a theologian. Sengelmann is currently writing his PhD thesis in Practical Theology.
FAITH, YES. CHURCH, NO.
What’s going wrong with the Christian Church? Why are increasing numbers of people turning away from it at a time when their need for direction and purpose seems stronger than ever? How did we get here? And what can the Church do about it? Julian Sengelmann’s new book is a critical examination of these questions, showing us why the Church is currently in such a difficult situation. In his view, the Church needs to radically alter its perspective and although his book offers ideas, he refuses to turn his back on its institutions. On the contrary, Sengelmann’s book is a long overdue coming-to-terms with a highly topical issue. Yet it is also a love letter by a modern theologian who has no qualms about asking difficult questions.
