How can we achieve unity within the diversity of the body of Christ? Gerald Sittser examines the "one another" statements throughout the New Testament to distill much-needed biblical wisdom for loving each other even in the midst of controversies and stalemates. Speaking from his own pastoral experience with the best and worst of church life, Sittser helps us understand more fully what the love Jesus commanded actually requires and shows us how to live it out---through struggle, servanthood, compromise and sacrifice.
"Sittser emphasizes particularly the importance of admonishing brothers and sisters in loving, nonjudgmental ways which will help Christians become all that God intended them to be."
"His chapter on forgiveness is some of the best writing on the subject I have ever read."
Sittser's expositions of Paul's pastoral thinking are often insightful and almost always helpful. It might form a supporting text for a local church studying what the Bible says about Christian fellowship or pastoral care. It would also provide warmth and breadth for the thinking of pastors, elders or deacons, possibly on a retreat
Join the author and explore the mutuality commands left by Jesus that teach and illustrate how to obey Him and put love into action.
The author goes into the other commands which teach love in action. The author does not try to tell us what we should do, but the words of the Bible and how they can be used to help us learn to live together and even to love one another are explored in detail.
Love One Another takes the emphasis off church growth tactics or the latest trend in motivational preaching. Instead, Sittser shows a church being the body Jesus intended-redeemed sinners loving one another.
There are so many interesting facets to this book; it could be worthwhile as a study for small groups in the church. The discussion guide in the back of the book would be so helpful that any lay person could lead the discussion.
A much needed how-to book on healthy church life.
Somehow though, it's not like every other book that is designed to compel the Church towards love; it's full of practical steps to a love that goes beyond barriers, acknowledging those around us, encouraging, forgiving and confessing.
Tor Espen Kristensen5 Stars Out Of 5June 24, 2008Tor Espen KristensenIt is biblical, it is honest, it is lived. This book made me think alot. It was not an easy book. Easy to read for sure (the language was easu to read for a Norwegian as me). But it was very thought-provoking and inspiring. Recommended!
