Since I started blogging, each year I’ve picked my favorite book of the year (“2006,” “2007,” and “2008“). Each year, I have chosen a book about the church that I read for the first time during that year.
This year, my favorite book of the year is Joseph H. Hellerman’s When the Church was a Family: Recapturing Jesus’ Vision for Authentic Christian Community (Nashville: B&H, 2009).
I believe church’s and followers of Jesus would be radically changed if they began to think of one another as family – true family – real family – closer than blood family.
Here are the posts that I wrote about this book:
If you’ve read this book, I’d love to know what you think. If you haven’t read it… why not? Get it and read it! (Then tell me what you think about it.)
