Item Description...
Christians have the love of God, the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and the promise of eternal life---so where's the joy? Living in a culture of "solo efforts" has robbed us of our collective cheerfulness, says Dawn, who helps us get it back by examining Romans 12. Gladness is the church's heritage. Let's claim it!

Publishers Description
Many writers have decried the lack of intimacy and community in our contemporary culture. Few of them, however, provide a fully biblical description of community or give specific methods for its recovery. Through an intensive study of Romans 12, Marva Dawn here offers precisely this kind of practical guidance for building vital Christian community life. Originally published as The Hilarity of Community, this volume continues to be one of the best sources for understanding what it means to live together as the church of Christ.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
should have known better...  Mar 13, 2010
The content is exactly similar to "The Hilarity of Community." It beats me why two similar books are published under different titles.
Truly the Community Romans 12 How to Be the Church  Feb 14, 2010
Can be read individually or with a group. It also is a great devotional. Extremely helpful in bringing understanding of each person's part of how to be the church in a fruitful way.
Truly the Community  Dec 27, 2008
This book is inspirational and insightful into what the church of Jesus Christ ought to look like not only today but in every generation. It is a study of the body of Christ as revealed in Romans 12. Verses 1 and 2 lay the foundation by addressing our calling to present our bodies as a living sacrifice by God's mercy, and to be transformed from within rather than outward conforming to this world. The verse by verse commentary is a blessing for all believers as well as challenging us to become the people God called us to be. Throughout the book Marva Dawn uses the word "Hilarity" to describe the Christian community. She doesn't use this word in the contemporary sense but is referring to the Greek word "hilarotes" which the Apostle Paul used in Romans 12:8 to invite those who have the gift of showing mercy to use this gift with cheerfulness. Showing mercy with cheerfulness is to be demonstrated in every relationship and in every action the people of God face no matter what gift they have been given. Not only is this book an excellent read for individuals but it also provides questions after each chapter for group discussion. Thank you Marva Dawn using your gift to encourage the church.
