Biblically and practically instructs church members in ways they can labor for the health of their church.

What Is a Healthy Church Member? takes its cue from Mark Dever’s book What Is a Healthy Church?, which offered one definition of what a healthy church looks like biblically and historically. In this new work, pastor Thabiti Anyabwile attempts to answer the natural next question: “What does a healthy church member look like in the light of Scripture?”

God intends for us to play an active and vital part in the body of Christ, the local church. He wants us to experience the local church as a home more profoundly wonderful and meaningful than any other place on earth. He intends for his churches to be healthy places and for the members of those churches to be healthy as well. This book explains how membership in the local church can produce spiritual growth in its members and how each member can contribute to the growth and health of the whole.

What Is a Healthy Church Member?

Thabiti Anyabwile gives us 10 marks of a healthy church member, and they are all very helpful. The book is strong on Christians needing to get involved with a local church, and not just relying on the pastor to do everything. I do have some quibbles: I would have put "genuinely converted" as number one; expecting members to read commentaries on a passage before it is preached is somewhat unrealistic; and love is only mentioned in passing rather than as the mark it should be (John 13.35). Nonetheless Christians are called to be part of a church, and this book gives helpful pointers to think through what that means.
