Life in the Father’s House by Wayne Mack & Dave Swavely

Life in the Father’s House is a solidly biblical book aimed at members of the local church rather than at the leadership. It “speaks directly and extensively to the responsibilities of the ‘common’ people who are part of a local church” (p. 12). As such, numerous pertinent topics are handled including:

• Church membership

• How to choose a good church

• Roles of men and women

• Use of spiritual gifts

• Church discipline

• Unity in the body

• Praying for one another

Each chapter closes with study and discussion questions and an additional appendix with more such helps is included.

Life in the Father’s House is a helpful book which would benefit any who read it.
