Publisher's Description

<p>Jonathan Leeman addresses the commonly asked (and often unanswered) question of, &"Why should I join a church?&" in a time when many are shunning the practice of organized religion. By offering a brief, straightforward explanation of what church membership is and why it&’s important, Leeman gives the local church its proper due and builds a case for committing to the local body.& <em>Church Membership</em>& is a useful tool for churches to distribute& <em>en masse</em>& to new and potential members of their congregation.</p> <p>This volume is part of the 9Marks: Building Healthy Churches series. Look for upcoming, quick-read formats of the following marks of a healthy church: expositional preaching, biblical theology, the gospel, conversion, evangelism, church discipline, discipleship and growth, and church leadership.</p>

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 youÂ’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
