True Biblical Fellowship
On vactaion, I read through Jerry Bridges' The Crisis of Caring: Recovering the Meaning of True Fellowship. This is not Bridges' best book (that is The Dicipline of Grace or The Great Exchange). However, it is an excellent primer on the nature and foundation of true Biblical fellowship. Bridges exalts the importance of living our lives together in the local church. He encourages us all to have a few people who know us as completely as possible. As always, Bridges bases true fellowship with each other in the power of the Gospel. Because we have fellowship with God, we also have fellowship with each other.
