I still think every person in the pew should read 9 Marks of a Healthy Church, but I am so very glad that Thabiti has taken those marks, plus one, and made them directly applicable and more accessible to the church member in What is a Healthy Church Member?.
Too often we take more time to think through what it means to be a member of some club, or a citizen of a nation, this should not be so. Buy this little book and think through what it means to be a healthy church member.
The 9Marks series of books is premised on two basic ideas. First, the local church is far more important to the Christian life than many Christians today perhaps realize. A book called What Is a Healthy Church Member? might also be called What Is a Healthy Christian? We at 9Marks believe that a healthy Christian is a healthy church member.
Second, local churches grow in life and vitality as they organize their lives around God’s Word. God speaks. Churches should listen and follow. It’s that simple. When a church listens and follows, it begins to look like the One it is following. It reflects his love and holiness. It displays his glory. A church will look like him as it listens to him.
