Product Description

* The early church viewed itself as a family. How can today's Christians apply this model to their own communities? Offering insight into the meaning of the metaphor "brothers and sisters," Hellerman shows how the community's relationship with Jesus took precedence over the individual, that a healthy church family is a powerful vehicle for evangelism, and more. 240 pages, softcover from B&H.

Publisher's Description

Spiritual formation occurs primarily in the context of community. But as the modern cultural norm of what social scientists call “radical American individualism” extends itself, many Christians grow lax in their relational accountability to the church. Faith threatens to become an “I” not “us,” a “my God” not “our God” concern.

When the Church Was a Family calls believers back to the wisdom of the first century, examining the early Christian church from a sociohistorical perspective and applying the findings to the evangelical church in America today. With confidence, author Joseph Hellerman writes intentionally to traditional church leaders and emerging church visionaries alike, believing what is detailed here about Jesus’ original vision for authentic Christian community will deeply satisfy the relational longings of both audiences.

    This book is excellent to understand what it REALLY means to be a family in the Lord. We got to get back to the Word of God to understand how those biblical NT believers understood what it means to be a family where today's culture, especially in America, didn't really get it.
