Overview

Biblically and practically instructs church members in ways they can labor for the health of their church.

What Is a Healthy Church Member? takes its cue from Mark Dever's book What Is a Healthy Church?, which offered one definition of what a healthy church looks like biblically and historically. In this new work, pastor Thabiti Anyabwile attempts to answer the natural next question: "What does a healthy church member look like in the light of Scripture?"

God intends for us to play an active and vital part in the body of Christ, the local church. He wants us to experience the local church as a home more profoundly wonderful and meaningful than any other place on earth. He intends for his churches to be healthy places and for the members of those churches to be healthy as well. This book explains how membership in the local church can produce spiritual growth in its members and how each member can contribute to the growth and health of the whole.

Joni and Friends gives the church a wonderful study and resource to answer the really tough ethical and moral questions of our day. Issues like abortion, stem cells, eugenics, disabilities and the right to life debate are clearly articulated, processed through scripture and laid out in a great fashion for the reader. I found the research and clarity very helpful as I continue to hone my beliefs about these complicated and emotion charged issues. The end of the chapter study questions are perfect for small group meetings and book clubs. As an added bonus the book is replete with personal stories and life commentary from Joni and others that have been personally impacted or entrenched in these issues. I believe the church is in better light when Joni Eareckson Tada speaks and writes as she stands taller in her chair than most do even standing on a chair.
