Overview

Spiritual formation occurs primarily in the context of community. But as the modern cultural norm of what social scientists call radical American individualism extends itself, many Christians grow lax in their relational accountability to the church. Faith threatens to become an I not us, a my God not our God concern."

When the Church Was a Family "calls believers back to the wisdom of the first century, examining the early Christian church from a sociohistorical perspective and applying the findings to the evangelical church in America today. With confidence, author Joseph Hellerman writes intentionally to traditional church leaders and emerging church visionaries alike, believing what is detailed here about Jesus original vision for authentic Christian community will deeply satisfy the relational longings of both audiences."
