The living church creates community.
This first volume in Judson Press's new "Living Church" series addresses the topic of church growth and discipleship.
For centuries, the Christian church has led the way in creating communities of people. Dr. Lee Spitzer proposes that today's church can sustain that leadership role by developing a transformative paradigm for church growth. The key, Spitzer asserts, is learning to expand and enrich our circles of friendshipin our home, our congregation, and our community.
Through friendships, our churches grownot only in terms of the number of people who join but in regard to the maturity of disciples who participate in the life of the Body of Christ. This practical resource includes chapter studies on friendship in the Bible and in the life of Jesus.
Author Lee Spitzer is donating his book royalties to the anti-poverty efforts of the American Baptist Churches of New Jersey.
