    One of Rainer's best books. A powerful message in a small book. We are now using it to introduce new members to our church

    This short book does a great job with 1 Corinthians 12-13 while challenging Christians to a deeper level of covenant relationship with their local churches. It challenges gossip and grumbling in a positive way and explains the pressures that pastors face on a regular basis. At CBC prices, it would be a great gift for new members as well as a fine study for the church as a whole.

    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.
