The God Who Is Relationship
A Book Review of "The Community Life of God: Seeing the Godhead As the Model for All Relationships" by Milt Rodriguez
Reviewed by David D. Flowers

"God is not an individual" says Milt Rodriguez. "He is a fellowship of three Persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit" (p.14).

In The Community Life of God, Rodriguez weaves together the story of God's desire to plant himself in His people. God's image is a "communal" image. The Lord created man in His image of community. And taking from the Tree of Life (i.e. Christ) is to take from the relational God.

It was in the Garden of Eden that the serpent sought to keep God's image from becoming a reality in the hearts of men. The enemy of God presented man with individual living out of his own soul-life (i.e. will, emotions, intellect). Instead of man pursuing spiritual living after taking from the communal life of God, he experiences separation from God and other men.

Rodriguez proposes that much of Christian activity today is spent furthering the individualistic mindset that is so popular in our culture. Even when believers come together corporately there is not an understanding of God's image among us. Church life is more than socializing and individual Christian ministries.

Milt writes, "Personhood and identity can only be defined by relating to others. You will never truly "find yourself" until you are living in the community life of God" (p.62)

What is the sort of fellowship the Lord desires among his ekklesia?

"This fellowship is the place where there is nothing to hide. Complete truthfulness and complete honesty rule here. The Father, Son, and Spirit do not hold back anything from one another...

This book opened up so much space for more understanding of the love of God in my life. My heartfelt thanks to Mr. Rodriguez. There are a few typos. Overlook them. What he has to say here is absolutely worth the price of the book and the overlooking of the little boo-boos. Read it slowly and digest it. Take the time to check out the scriptures. I was amazed and I'll bet you will be, too. God is so good, and it seems to me that He gets better and better the more understanding He gives me of Himself. This book is a gift of understanding.

It is frequently out of print unfortunately (and undeservedly), but you can always purchase it via Kindle, and if you don't have a reader, read it on a free Kindle app for your computer and other devices. You can get the Kindle apps from Amazon -- they're dead simple to install. Even I didn't need to get my teen-aged daughter to help me! ;)

What an amazing book Milt Rodriguez has written! In The Community Life of God, he looks extensively at the incredible relationship that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit enjoy with one another. He beautifully explores their life together and how it is meant to be our life together as well. We can experience the love, the sacrifice, the passion, the selflessness that the Godhead has enjoyed within themselves for eternity past. This book includes some very deep and profound insights yet it is very accessible and easy to read. Take your time and slowly consume the life giving words contained within as you come to understand the purpose God set forth in Jesus Christ before creation.

In addition, I would recommend all of Milt's books. They are centered on our Lord and you will gain immeasurably from reading them. In fact, EVERY Christian should read his books. They are all that good

I have read a great deal this past year and this book is another that has helped me on my journey to a complete transformation of my understanding of scripture, and body life. As my spiritual journey has and is still unfolding, I am continually amazed. No, I am overwhelmingly amazed at God's revelation! He is unfolding the truths about community life, what that means and even looks like. How I have missed it all these years stupefies me, but I now know that I am a part of something so beautiful, something truly whole, and because of this I have an inexpressible glorious joy that has filled the deepest parts of my soul. I am excited to see what God will do in the days, months and years to come. I would recommend this book to anyone who is desperate for God!

As a student of theology, this book has given me a clear picture of the Community life of God and a clear path to serve Him in a true organic way. I'm glad that I came in contact with this amazing material. May God's will and purpose be done for His glory!
