    Rethinking Roles of Church and Family

    In his book Limited Church: Unlimited Kingdom, Uniting Church and Family in the Great Commission, author Rob Rienow searches the scriptures for the unique roles that family and the local church plan in advancing the Gospel, challenging what many of today's churches and families practice. He calls churches back to a more limited set of responsibilities and families to more expanded ones.

    He purports that the church's God-given tasks include worshiping God, preaching the Bible, caring for believers, and equipping believers for works of ministry (p. 87). His conclusion: "When the local church 'limits' its focus and activities within its God-given jurisdiction, God blesses the church's ministry, and the Kingdom of God advances for His ever-increasing glory" (p. 74).

    As for families, Rienow says their mission is to be discipleship centers, to impress the hearts of children with a love for God, and to be an essential engine of world evangelization through the power of multi-generational faithfulness (pp. 146-47).

    In the remainder of the book, Rienow outlines how local churches and families can unite in fulfilling the Great Commission. This, for me, was the most challenging part of the book. While I can certainly agree with Rienow's theology and his conclusions, this is a paradigm shift for most churches today, and one that takes both prayer and time. You can bet I'll be thinking through a lot of Rienow's suggestions and praying over how we can implement some of them in our own family and local church.

    If you're from a program-based evangelical church, get ready to wrestle with some of your "traditions." Many of us have grown up in churches that segregated age groups, where the various ages saw each other in the car on the way to church and on the way back home. According to Rienow, that's not God's intention, and he cites biblical evidence. I do appreciate that Rienow encourages the reader to study the scriptures and to even disagree with him as long as one can support his argument biblically and prayerfully.

    For those who are discontent with the fact that so many young people are leaving the church today, you'll find this a helpful tool.

    Limited Church: Unlimited Kingdom is a great book, biblically based with lots to think about. It's one I'll likely refer to over and over again as our family continues to grow in faith together and as we serve in our church and community.

    Don't expect to finish the book quickly. While it's not difficult reading, there's so much to think about that you'll want to take your time.

    *Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for this review. However, the opinions expressed are my own.
