The author Thabiti Anyabwile has written on what is a healthy church member. For those familiar with Mark Devers’ ministry and writing, readers will immediately notice that Thabiti’s first nine of ten points is borrowed from Dever’s book on the nine marks of the church. However what I like about this book in contrast to Dever’s book is that the emphasis is not so much on the church but now the individual readers (after all its about healthy church members). I like the focus on the readers as members of a church since too often today we have those in the church who can be hypocritical in focusing on what’s wrong with others in the church without seeing the need for themselves to be healthy and godly church members. It’s a great tool for discipleship to focus on members being healthy church members.
I appreciate the author’s tenth mark on a healthy church members. A healthy members as the author pointed out is one who is a “prayer warrior.” Church members and prayers should go together. Personally God has been teaching more the importance of prayer so this is great to see in the book. I’ve enjoyed this book that I bought it for myself and others as gifts. It should be no surprise then for me to say that I recommend this book.
It is not some kind of divine "checklist" - it is simply a practical guide. It would make a good "text" for a "new members" class, or as a church-wide unifying and energizing study.
I hope to pick up several of these for "gifts"!
