"The Life Of The Church" by Joe Thorn is a good title addressing how the church needs to operate to be effective for Jesus Christ. The book is built around 3 areas:
1. Fellowship (table) - meeting with other believers in a small group setting - we need to be around other Christians for mutual encouragement and discipleship.
2. Corporate Worship (pulpit) - weekly church service - need to be around other believers in a church setting for worshipping and glorifying God.
3. In The World (square) - intentionally seek to minister and witness to nonbelievers in various settings outside church: work, community involvement, neighborhood, etc.
The book is an easy read and smoothly transitions from chapter to chapter. Containing good points and just over 100 pages, the book can be completed in a few sittings. I was given a review copy by Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
