Product Description

As followers of Christ we understand the importance of "finishing the race" and "keeping the faith." But the journey toward our final reward is just as important as the destination itself. It is therefore vital that we develop close, spiritual partnerships with fellow Christians as we walk this journey. Using 11 classic figures from Scripture, Leonard Sweet details key personal attributes that make up God's Dream Team for your life. Sweet ultimately asks us to consider not if we will cross the finish line, but whose hands we will be holding when we do. Find strength in the company of brothers and sisters who positively impact our world for Christ!

    This is one book that I could live without. The introduction was helpful, but too many extra-biblical quotes and references that seemed rooted in this world and not the Bible. It had a new age feel to it. Even though the 11 relationships were Biblical characters, it didn't seem there was much depth given to what the scriptures say about relationships, though there was some. A lot of the relationships were illustrated by characters in movies and the modern culture; movies in many cases not appropriate for Christians. I did come away with the term "Withness" that I liked, but I think Leonard Sweet has found most of his "Withness" in the world unfortunately.

    I started reading this book during my summer vacation and decided to use 5 of the chapters as the basis for a sermon series this fall. Two weeks into the series the congregation is expressing keen appreciation for the "11 Indispensable Relationships" and asking for more, so I am ordering a half-dozen copies of the book and offering a study group for the 6 or 7 chapters that we are not using in worship. I think that this is one of the best and most usable books Dr. Sweet has written. He is often such a visionary that you cannot apply his words to the contemporary parish. but everyone can use this book to complete an inventory of your relationships, and then determine which one or ones you need to develop in your life. I heartily recommend it to all -- especially to persons in mid-life and beyond who are feeling that their lives may be incomplete. Five "stars" out of five.
