I Am a Church Member Thom S. Rainer read online review & book description:

Best-selling author and ministry leader Thom S. Rainer drew an exceptional response when he posted a 500-word declaration about church membership to his daily blog. "I Am a Church Member" started a conversation about the attitudes and responsibilities of church members -- rather than the functional and theological issues -- that previous new member primers all but ignored.

Thoughtfully expanded to book form, I Am a Church Member begins to remedy the outbreak of inactive or barely committed church members, addressing without apology what is expected of those who join a body of believers. When a person's attitude is consistently biblical and healthy, matters of giving, serving, and so forth will fall into place more naturally.
Six intentional chapters with study questions guide this rising discussion:
1. I Will Be a Unifying Church Member
2. I Will Not Let the Church Be About My Preferences and Desires
3. I Will Pray for My Church Leaders
4. I Will Lead My Family to Be Healthy Church Members
5. I Will Be a Functioning Member
6. I Will Treasure Church Membership as a Gift

    This is a book that should be read by every person in the church (and those coming in). We’re going to use it as a part of our membership classes at our church. Great book!!

    The book is an easy read and straight forward biblical framework of the church. Not a building or a place, but you and I; born again believers saved by grace. Whether you are considering becoming a church member, new to church or have been at the same church for 20 years; i would recommend that you read this book once a year to reminder ourselves who we are in Christ and what we are called to as members of the "Body of Christ", the church.

    This is an awesome read and it labels the identity and ideals of some church parishioners. And shows us the seriousness of being a church member.
  • Very practical, informing, and encouraging!

    Rainer does a fantastic job of looking at a particular mindset within the church and examining it biblically and objectively! This is a great book for pastors and other staff/leadership to read as well as church members. Rainer also goes as far to prompt the reader to commit to change in the faith lifestyle by pledging to end bad habits and mind sets that hurt the church. All of this is presented in a small enough size to make it an easy undertaking by anyone, whether they like to read or not. It is concise, but doesn't leave anything out. Definitely worth reading!
