My dear friend, Thabiti Anyabwile, has written the finest, most accessible book I am aware of in What is a Healthy Church Member that informs and guides the church member to understand their most important role within the local church. It is profound in content, yet very easy to understand, follow, and maneuver through. It is required reading for every prospective member of our church. If you are a pastor and unfamiliar with this book, read it to know how to instruct your people in their responsibilities to be a faithful, healthy church member. Then, buy several copies, have your members read it, and keep a stack in your office to give to every Christian who questions their role and importance in their church. Find it on sale and buy several copies here.
Has anyone else found this book as helpful as I have?
