An Invitation to Deeper, More Joyful, and Rewarding Relationships with God and Others

None of us is lovable all of the time. People are unreasonable, arguments flare, feelings are hurt. And no one can make us feel worse than those closest to us. It's easy to fall into the trap of closing ourselves off in order to protect ourselves, rather than opening ourselves up for relat

Over the last several years, it seems that there has been more attention to the relational aspects of the Christian faith. There have always been some people writing about relationships, often the biblical counselors, but the focus has spread. More and more, Christian authors are recognizing that the Trinity is not simply incidental to Christianity, but essential--not just what is, but what must be, if God is love.

Jim Putman’s newest book does a great job of unpacking an essential element of life that is missing for far too many today. RELATIONSHIPS! Not the kind we make on social media but the kind where a group of people truly knows you and who you are.

As a small groups pastor, I am passionate about people connecting in healthy relationships with others who will challenge them to grow in Christlikeness. God is relational and designed us to grow best through relati

Summary: A pastor of a thriving church explores what he believes to be the key to both spiritual maturity and the ministry effectiveness of his church--the fostering of relationships of depth between believers throughout the church.

Jim Putnam begins this book by observing a gap that exists in many American churches. People have come to faith, been taught both Christian doctrine and Christian practice and yet seem to lack the vibrant maturity and depth one one would expect in disciples of Jesus.

Growing up as a Christian, I had never considered the church to be a place whereby it was a family. Leaders who were once upon a time, the most wonderful of spiritual parents or elder siblings, would disappear from life once they were reassigned to other locations or who left for other churches. Yes we were all taught (what I regarded to be spiritual gibberish) about weekly commitment to youth service, morning and evening sunday service and cell group. Because the church lacked a formal membersh ...more

Many of us want to live in a community where we feel that we are accepted, loved, and belong. However, there are many of us that can’t find a place where it all clicks. Instead we continue searching, dejected that the community we envision is out of our reach. But there is hope. A community like that exists and was meant to be, but it will take work.

In The Power of Together, Jim Putnam shares the meaning and importance of having relationships with other people, more specifically, spiritual relat

Pub Date 21 Jun 2016

I was given a copy of The Power of Together through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows:

Jim Putnam points out that Jesus wants us to follow his recipe for living. And he points out too that we as Christians don't always follow God's recipes for living as we should. Put an points out that our Spiritual food is

This book was not what I Expected. Not really sure WHAT I was expecting, but this wasn't it. This was, however, a good discussion of why it is so important for Christians to have deep, meaningful relationships with other Christians. So true, and something that needs to be said. The message was good. The book, though? Actually a little boring. I feel bad saying that, but it's true. When I find myself skimming here and there, I know it's not holding my interest. Still glad I read it, though. There ...more
