Body Life shows you how to practice deep koinonia fellowship, to carry one another's burdens, to share one another's hurts, confessing to one another, rejoicing with one another, encouraging one another, celebrating the diversity of our gifts and abilities while maintaining the unity of the Spirit. Using principles from Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12, and Ephesians 4, Ray Stedman helps you discover the dynamic purpose of the church and the exciting role of each member in the body of Christ.
-In Body Life, Ray C. Stedman uses the leverage of the Word itself to bring us back to the church's real meaning and mission. With strong, convincing arguments he points to the weaknesses within the institutional church, and clearly reminds us of the strength inherent in Christ's body, the true church.-
- BILLY GRAHAM
-This powerful book's impact on the church has been significant. It is time that a new generation recognize the blessings that flow to those who accept Stedman's challenge . . . It is the first book that achieved widespread recognition for its emphasis on fellowship, the diversity of spiritual gifts, the -one anothers- of Scripture, and the importance of maintaining unity.-
- R. R., Aurora, CO
