Product Description

Why should you join a church?

Becoming a member of a church is an important, and often neglected, part of the Christian life. Yet the trend these days is one of shunning the practice of organized religion and showing a distaste or fear of commitment, especially of institutions.

Jonathan Leeman addresses these issues with a straightforward explanation of what church membership is and why it's important. Giving the local church its proper due, Leeman has built a compelling case for committing to the local body.

Endorsements

Church leaders across many denominations will find this little book filled with practical ideas and good arguments that will help us cure Christians in our culture today of their allergy to church membership, pastoral authority, life accountability, and any limits to their personal freedom.
-Timothy Keller,
Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

Brief, fresh, entertaining, and, above all, biblical. This is the explanation and defense of church membership you’ve been looking for.
-Mark Dever,
Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington DC; President, 9Marks

Practical. Convicting. Biblically faithful. Leeman reminds us that church membership is not a choice but a demand. The book is punchy and provocative, but at the same time it is permeated with the gospel of grace.
-Thomas R. Schreiner,
James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

We live in an age where people relate to and make decisions about church much like they do with a restaurant. We desperately need to be awakened from our consumeristic slumber. This book is the wake-up call that is needed to turn church consumers into gospel participants.
-Darrin Patrick,
Lead Pastor, The Journey, St. Louis, MO; author, For the City and Church Planter
