Best-selling author and ministry leader Thom S. Rainer drew an exceptional response when he posted a 500-word declaration about church membership to his daily blog. I Am a Church Member started a conversation about the attitudes and responsibilities of church members - rather than the functional and theological issues - that previous new member primers all but ignored.
Thoughtfully expanded to book form, I Am a Church Member begins to remedy the outbreak of inactive or barely committed church members, addressing without apology what is expected of those who join a body of believers. When a person's attitude is consistently biblical and healthy, matters of giving, serving, and so forth will fall into place more naturally.
Six intentional chapters with study questions guide this rising discussion.

I enjoyed listening and getting an understanding of what membership means. I "grew up in church" as most of Christians do, but don't really apply those steps listed in the book. I do suggest everyone who attends a local place of worship to get this.
Thom does a great job going over what it really means to be a church member and not someone who coasts in and out every Sunday, spreading gossip when so and so isn't around.
Ray Porter does a fantastic job bringing this book to life. His pauses and emphasis on certain words, etc is phenomenal.
I listened to this book all in one sitting while taking notes, pausing to find the verses in the bible.
