Author -Thabiti Anyabwile
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.
"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."
