Dare to face an uncompromising look at the real need in modern western Christianity; something far more important than methods, structures, or gimmicks--ethos. Once you build a biblical ethos into your group they will handle any obstacle and continue to thrive.

Readers will think through some of the most perplexing issues facing local churches today:

  • How to build high commitment into your group
  • How to resolve the contradictions between modern time demands and close body life
  • How to understand biblical teaching on church discipline in a today's world
  • How to stop the bleeding from western churches losing student-aged members to the world, and instead make student ministry the strongest part of your church
  • How each of 7 key New Testament metaphors for the church contributes its own unique insight into church health
  • How the dozens of "one-another" passages in the New Testament require a radical view of church life, quite at odds with many modern assumptions
The Lord will encourage you that New Testament church is possible, and He'll give you biblical and practical ideas for building a biblical ethos into your church.
- Pastor Ken MacGillivray, Hopevale Church

Members of One Another, is not a pharisaical firebomb being thrown at the church. It reflects a pastor's heart that doesn't want to beat up the church, but rather, wants to see the church built up. As a pastor, I was both challenged and convicted. This is a must read for the church and for every church leader.
- Patrick Schwenk, Teaching Pastor, NorthPoint Church

Dare to face an uncompromising look at the real need in modern western Christianity. Does a church's strength come from a stage, or from its members? In this training manual for church leaders, McCallum discusses something far more important for local churches than methods, structures, or gimmicks: "ethos." If you can build a biblical ethos into your group they will be ready to handle any obstacle and continue to thrive, regardless of your church model.
