In these days after the COVID crisis drove us to avoid large gatherings, many people fell away from the Sunday morning routine of church attendance; others became accustomed to “doing” church on Zoom or YouTube. In this book, authors Hansen and Leeman, explain why we need to “rediscover church” — why it is important to keep meeting together in person. Regular worship along with others is an essential part of our walk with Jesus.
They begin with this definition of church:
A church is a group of Christians
who assemble as an earthly embassy of Christ’s heavenly kingdom
to proclaim the good news and commands of Christ the king
to affirm one another as his citizens through the ordinances
and to display God’s own holiness and love
through a unified and diverse people
in all the world
following the teaching and example of elders
Each portion of the definition is discussed more thoroughly in the following chapters. At the end of each chapter there are recommended readings for further study.
The teaching is clear and Biblical. You’ll learn why participating in a congregation is essential to spiritual growth toward maturity, and how technology has affected the church in ways that are not always positive.
VERDICT: 5 STARS. I highly recommend it!
