Tim Chester & Steve Timmis 2012
I have been reading a bunch of books lately that center around Community Groups (or whatever your church calls them). This book takes it to a whole new level. It is not just a book about how to have or do a community group. It is a book about how you can have community.
Chester and Timmis write this book around the New Testament letter of First Peter and this makes a whole lot of sense. We are to be the church not just do church.
Who should read this? If you work for a church, big or small, read it. If you are interested in taking your church into your community and are looking for more than just a few good ideas.
Another thing I really like about this book is that it doesn’t spend 100 pages convincing you to do what they do. It is assumed that if you bought this book then you most likely have a strong interest in learning how to take the Gospel into your community.
If you are looking for a very applicable book on Gospel in your community you may want to pick it up.
