Book Review - Rediscover Church

Rediscover Church

Why the Body of Christ Is Essential
By: Collin Hansen, Jonathan Leeman

Book Review

Overall a very helpful book. It attempts to give a fresh view of what composes a healthy church, especially in light of the recent years of COVID and such. What I have heard is that many people have drifted and left the church during these times. (I have not seen that much in my personal experience.) Many pastor-scholar-authors will often write to help God's church process the current times in light of the timeless truths of the Bible, and that is what Jonathan Leeman and Collin Hansen are seeking to do here.

I view this book as a great tool to have conversations about church in today's context. These conversations should be with those are are still in church as well as those who have left in recent years. Whenever we can talk through the big doctrines of Scripture in light of current context, it will strengthen God's church. Books like this provide an official storehouse that we can draw off of while we seek to have these conversations.

There were a couple things that bothered me about the book. I consider the case for church membership to be overdone and the case for believers baptism to be underdone. But, I'm not a pastor-scholar-author. These guys have done something I cannot do myself, and I am grateful for their work.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.
