|The Crisis of Caring|
By Jerry Bridges
Recovering the meaning of true fellowship. Does the word "fellowship" bring to mind images of small groups, coffee, and discussion? The New Testament word koinonia means something much more than today's watered-down English counterpart. Bridges reveals the life-changing power of a ministry of caring whereby you'll renew your bonds of love, contribute your gifts, share your possessions, and more.
|The Communion of Saints|
By Philip Graham Ryken
Living in fellowship with the people of God. In a day when Christians are more divided than united, true believers must again commit themselves to their common spiritual communion with one another. This biblical and practical guide, complete with leader’s guide and spiritual gifts questionnaire, guides those united in Christ toward life in the Christian community.
|The Basis of Christian Unity|
By D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Christian unity is the result of a shared faith in Christ and His gospel. This is what emerges from Dr. Lloyd-Jones' consideration of John 17 and Ephesians 4 in the addresses to the Westminster Fellowship republished here. His presentation was given against the background of the ferment of the time and demonstrated that unity is never something arrived at by ignoring or minimizing truth.
|Ministries of Mercy|
By Timothy Keller
Some lay blame for poverty and need on oppression; others on laziness. Pastor Keller demonstrates that the biblical viewpoint is far more sophisticated than either extreme. He sets forth scriptural principles for mercy ministries, suggests practical steps to begin and persevere in active caring, and deals perceptively with thorny issues. Balanced and informative!
|Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands|
By Paul David Tripp
Intruments in the Redeemer's Hands is a comprehensive treatment in the lives of others, people who themselves are in need of change. In many ways, we see church merely as an event we attend or an organization we belong to, rather than as a calling that shapes our entire life. Tripp explains how his work follows an "all of my people, all of the time model." If you followed the Lord for a thousand years, you would still need the ministry of the body of Christ as much as you did the day you first believed. This need will remain until our sanctification is complete in Glory.
|The Hospitality Commands|
By Alexander Strauch
Christian hospitality is a very effective means of evangelism and of building a loving Christian community. It can help your church grow and to become a friendlier, more loving body. Unlike other books on hospitality, The Hospitality Commands expounds every Scripture on hospitality, explores all the biblical examples, and then lists the biblical fruits of Christian hospitality. Study questions included for individual or group study.
By Dietrich Bonhoeffer
After his martyrdom at the hands of the Gestapo in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer continued his witness in the hearts of Christians around the world. In his book Life Together we learn of Pastor Bonhoeffer's experience within Christian community. This story of a unique fellowship in an underground seminary during the Nazi years reads like one of Paul's letters. It gives practical advice on how life together in Christ can be sustained in families and groups. The role of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service is treated in simple, almost biblical, words.

|Ministry and Fellowship|
By John Owen
A perennial concern of John Owen throught his literary career was the subject of the Church. Thus it is not surprising that four of the sixteen volumes of his works are devoted to this field. This volume contains several treaties, and principally deals with the subject of the schism. The charge of schism was repeatedly brought against those who sought to reform the Church according Scripture.
