Called to Community: The Life Jesus Wants For His People
Increasingly, today’s Christians want to to follow Christ together in daily life, not just on Sunday. From every corner of society, they are responding to Christ’s call to share their lives more fully with others. As they take the plunge, they are discovering the rich, meaningful life that Jesus has in mind for all people. And they are pointing the church back to its original calling: to be a gathered, united community that demonstrates the transforming love of God by sharing all things in common and taking care of one another and their neighbours.
Of course, community isn’t easy. The selections in this volume are, by and large, written by practitioners―people who have pioneered life in intentional community and have discovered in the nitty-gritty of daily life what it takes to establish, nurture, and sustain a Christian community over the long haul.
Whether you have just begun thinking about communal life or have been part of a community for many years, the pieces in this collection will encourage, challenge, and strengthen you.
The book’s fifty-two chapters can be read one a week to ignite meaningful group discussion.
Includes a discussion guide and list of further reading.
