At first, I recognized the title. Then, I recognized the cover. Finally, I realized Brett and I had purchased this book on our Kindle a few years ago, and there it has remained, held hostage by the loss of the Kindle’s power cord.

Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer | #bookschristineread

A classic exploration of Christian community, indeed. If you are currently in the process of learning to be a disciple-maker or are presently being discipled, I would highly recommend this book to reinforce what you are learning about the importance of growing alongside a body of Jesus-followers. Merely interested in learning why being actively connected […]
