5.0 out of 5 starsInspiring
Reviewed in the United States on July 27, 2015
Ms. Barton provides an inspiring vision of what Holy Spirit empowered community could be. She provides a vision of how a community of Christians could help each other seek their heart's desire (God) and enjoy community without the barriers of gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, etc. She gives guidance in how to achieve this type of community, but I wonder if most Christians are afraid to aspire to such lofty community.
Great book. It's causing me to evaluate myself and my relationships within the body of Christ. I'm realizing more and more that these relationships are key in the Father's heart. Our relationship with Him will suffer if we are not rightly related to each other.

I have read all of Ruth's books and in my opinion, this book is one of her best. If you are a Christ-follower striving to walk in community, this book is for you. If you are part of a small group or group of spiritual friends, this book is for you. If you are a pastor striving to pursue biblical community in your congregation, this book is for you. Thanks Ruth for continuing to strengthen the souls of our leadership!
1.0 out of 5 starsComplete with Tweetables... Really??!!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 14, 2015
Love the book (Kindle version) but irritated beyond measure by the addition of Tweetables (intrusive widgets in the text that allow you to tweet the highlighted sentence). They interrupt the flow of reading, they are an insult to the intelligence of the reader, who should be able to choose what, if anything, they want to tweet, and reduce the book to a glorified blog and the reader as followers or fans of the author. I have been informed by the publisher that these cannot be removed from my copy- surely if they have been inserted they can be removed. I will think twice about buying another book from this publisher unless this unasked-for feature can be removed.
