We are family! Nov 22, 2007
This is an amazing book and one which I think every Christian should read at least once! It is especially challenging to our American individualist mindset - the whole idea of true Christian fellowship/community goes against our "its just between me and God" way of thinking. We ARE united in Jesus Christ - and that's the reality, like it or not. We ARE responsible to and for one another, as messy as that sometimes can be. The Christian community is not a rose-colored glasses, tidy, perfect kind of place. It is a down-in-the-trenches, very real bond between fellow sinners created by Christ Himself. Bonhoeffer offers a particular challenge to all who think they can be Christians without belonging to a church.
