Synopses & Reviews
Many writers have decried the lack of intimacy and community in our contemporary culture. Few of them, however, provide a fully biblical description of community or give specific methods for its recovery. Through an intensive study of Romans 12, Marva Dawn here offers precisely this kind of practical guidance for building vital Christian community life. Originally published as The Hilarity of Community, this volume continues to be one of the best sources for understanding what it means to live together as the church of Christ.
Author-educator-theologian Marva Dawn looks to the twelfth chapter of the book of Romans for a blueprint for establishing the contours of community in the Christian church, a biblical ideal rarely achieved in our individualistic society.
