  1. I will have to read that. Sounds interesting and true! No more of this I am a Christian because I attend church on Sunday once a week, even though I know no one there! Grrr.

  2. Indeed! Joe's book sets a high bar: one worth striving for. (And it's founded on buckets of research. I took a course from him on church as family during my Th.M. and had the opportunity to read the draft of his monograph on the topic. Wow!)
