    this is a great book that addresses the selfish thinking that permeates and is destroying the church in the Western world.

    We live in a culture of selfishness and Christians have too a great extent been infected with that, and bring it into the church. This reflected in the "worship wars" and other ongoing conflicts in the church. Disputes over minor things are rampant. Young people are very open about the fact that their commitment to church comes after their social life, trips, making sure their kids are in every available club and sports activity, and "if they feel like it," etc. Even the middle age and seniors often take the position that they have attended Sunday service and that is all that's all that is necessary.

    I was so impressed by the challenges in this book that I purchased a copy for every member of our church board. Their reaction has been extremely positive to its content, but are uncertain has to how to get the message across without being accused of being judgemental and old fashioned.

    The one drawback is the chapter on praying for Pastors and church leaders. While church leaders were included in passing, the passage was really about how bad Pastors have it. I found this a bit simplistic and not realistic to a great many churches. Nevertheless the point about praying and supporting Pastors and church leaders is very important.

    All six points are essential to the survival of any church, and I like the presentation of six chapters with study questions at the end of each. Will make a great small group study.

    This book contains a practical lifestyle in every Church. I believe it will be of much help to every Christian.

    When you read the table of contents of the six chapters, its a must read. Each chapter tells (I will) on the six steps of being a church member. The book gives you the three W's Who, What & Why you are a CHURCH MEMBER.. Thom S. Rainer writes great books and I have not read a bad one yet.

    Perfect for Group Study

    Each chapter in this little book of only 96 pages is followed by a pledge for the reader to consider and sign. Next come questions to study and discuss, lending the book perfectly to a group study.

    I liked Rainer's illustrating church membership by comparing it to country club membership. His way of thinking helps make his points.

    Thank you to B&H Publishing Group for my copy
