In this transformational book, trusted pastor Thabiti Anyabwile repositions our thinking about spiritual fellowship. Extending the concept of Divine life presented in Henry Scougal's classic The Life of God in the Soul of Man, Anyabwile contends that union with Christ is not individualistic, but is discerned in the soul of the local church. This vision of spiritual fellowship is not centred on external activities and programs, but on our shared life in Christ, as we share one another's sufferings, use our spiritual gifts for the good of the body, partner in spreading the gospel and grow spiritually together.
The Life of God in the Soul of the Church is experienced personally by believing the truth and shared relationally in the church which leads to great joy and holiness.
...doctrinally rich and biblically faithful, with a vital message for today's church.
"It is both rooted in the exposition of God's Word and full of practical wisdom. I pray that God will use it to encourage many Christians to pursue the fullness of 'the life of God in soul of the church."
"Building on what Christ has accomplished for us, this apostolic view of sanctification fleshes out what it means also for Christ to be formed in us, as we are conformed to his image. For anyone who doubts the practical relevance of good theology, this book will be a turning point."
"There can be no healthy church apart from true biblical fellowship; there can be no true biblical fellowship apart from the gospel. In this powerful book Thabiti Anyabwile draws these two together, anchoring the life of the church in the message of the church".
"Picking up where Henry Scougal left off, Thabiti reminds us that the life of God, which is in the soul of man, is consequently and necessarily also in the soul of the church. In other words, union with Christ is not just an individual truth, it is also a corporate, covenantal possession as well. Thabiti leads us through several texts that confronts and comforts us with this truth. This is a much appreciated addition to our understanding of Christ-centered church life."

Yes, we enjoy our time when we are there and even have friendships with others that we hold dear. But truth be told, when we hold up the contemporary church experience to the biblical model, we cannot help but notice that something is missing. The Lord Jesus Christ did not die to create a Body that would gather every seven days to pray, sing hymns together, and listen to a sermon, only to depart from one another until the next time they would meet. Our Savior meant for His people to live as family throughout the week with genuine care and concern for one another. In Thabiti Anyabwile's book, "The Life of God in the Soul of the Church," the author challenges the followers of Christ to rediscover "the root and fruit of spiritual fellowship." In a series of twelve expositional messages delivered to his congregation at the First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman, Anyabwile appeals to the unity of the local church body by referring to a number of the "one another" passages found in the words of Jesus and the writings of Paul. The fact that his own congregation is diverse and multi-ethnic adds credibility to his exhortations. This is an extremely practical book recommended for pastors and church leaders who sense the need for bringing genuine Christian community to their churches.
