Book Review: True Christianity: Church as Community by Art Katz

Three Stars out of Five

A thought-provoking examination of both modern and ancient Christian communities. Helpful studies for Christians to live sacrificially and victoriously as the Body of Christ. Katz’s background as an atheistic Jew and Marxist who converted to Christianity as an adult undoubtedly influences his recommendations, as well as his experience at the Ben Israel Fellowship in Minnesota.

My faint criticism is that Katz has a very exclusive approach to teaching. He uses the word “only” a lot, even in situations which do not warrant it. (Also, though Katz was born in Brooklyn some of his writings give the impression that English was not his first language. The reader can usually puzzle out his meaning, but it’s not always easy.)

Not for beginners, but a helpful guide toward living in fellowship.
