The Life of the Church

August 2019

On a regular basis I will recommend a book for growing believers to read. My purpose is not to endorse any particular ministry. My goal is to encourage followers of Christ to be readers. I truly believe a growing believer must be a reading believer. Dr. Tom Elliff said, "Most of us are the product of the books we read and the friends we keep."

Joe Thorn’s final book of the trilogy, The Life of the Church, is a must have for any new membership class or even a church staff. This book provides a great resource for a church to take a deep look at what they are about and make sure they are doing the true mission of the church. This book answers this critical question: “Why does the church exist, and how does it shape my life?”
