The Irresistible Community: An Invitation to Life Together by Bill Donahue

Build community the way Jesus did.

We all want a place where our stories matter, our voices are heard, our uniqueness is celebrated, our failures are embraced, and our hopes are unleashed. That kind of deep, life-changing community is found in fellowship with Jesus and was modeled perfectly by him and the ragged bunch of disciples with whom he chose to spend his time. But how can we create it in our lives?

Using the relationship of Jesus to his disciples in the upper room, Bill Donahue presents a simple but compelling approach to community life. Using a table, a towel, and the truth, Jesus created an "irresistible community" where everyone found a place to belong, lived fully in the truth, and served others with joy. Donahue shows you just how to apply Jesus's lessons to your own community – with life-changing results.

Bill Donahue’s The Irresistible Community: An Invitation to Life Together explores various aspects of healthy community, guided by the imagined narratives of the twelve disciples. With each topic and chapter, Donahue offers helpful, basic insight for building and maintaining authentic community, and his book could certainly prove beneficial to the church today and its desire for community.

Thanks to Baker Book Bloggers, I received a copy of The Irresistible Community and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
