Overview

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- Experienced personally by believing the truth; shared relationally in the church...leads to great joy and holiness.

Editorial Reviews

Michael Horton
"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."
Michael Horton ~ J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology & Apologetics, Westminster Seminary in California, Escondido, California
Albert Mohler
"In this new book, this gifted pastor takes us right into the heart of the New Testament the heart of New testament Christanity and the very nature of the Church, demonstrating the fellowship that is one of the signs of the gospel - both to the church itself and to the watching world.
R. Albert Mohler ~ President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
Tim Chester
"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."
Tim Chester ~ The Porterbrook Network and The Crowded House, Sheffield, UK.
Tim Challies
"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".
Tim Challies ~ Blogger at www.challies.com
Anthony Carter
"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."
