In this issue of Theology for Life Magazine, we’ve been considering the subject of church membership and “one another-ing” each other. We understand that we haven’t covered everything on this topic, but it is our prayer that, hopefully, readers of this issue of Theology for Life will grow in their understanding of it so they can stand fast on the Word of God.
If you’ve found this issue helpful and would like to study this subject further, please check out the following reading list below. These books are at the top of their genre in both excellence and readability.
- The Trellis and the Vine by Collin Marshall and Tony Payne
- 9 Marks of a Healthy Church by Mark Dever
- The Deliberate Church by Mark Dever & Paul Alexander
- Church Membership: How the World Knows Who Represents Jesus by Jonathan Leeman
I hope you’ll find these resources helpful as I have.
