We were created for community. So why do we want to be alone?


The Bible tells the story of the immense power of human relationships and God’s love for the church. Douglas Bursch presents a timely, insightful and practical theology of community. He examines the relational implications of human existence, sin, salvation, discipleship, evangelism and other key biblical concepts. Doug also shares unfiltered stories concerning his personal weaknesses and the relational struggles he has faced as a pastor. Each chapter contains thought-provoking questions that can be used by individuals, pastors, small groups and college classes for further in-depth discussions. Doug’s writing cuts to the heart of why community is so valuable but so costly. The Community of God: A Theology of the Church From a Reluctant Pastor is an indispensible resource for creating healthy Christian community in an increasingly individualistic world.


“Doug Bursch is one of the best thinkers of our day. He artfully mixes a sound theology with a practical application in a complex, combustible 21st Century culture that desperately needs a clarion voice.” - Glenn Burris Jr., President of The Foursquare Church


“Doug is unafraid to question the deep things of our faith but always does so as a committed believer. He’s interesting, passionate and practical all at the same time.” - Dr. Steve Schell, Senior Pastor of Northwest Church; host of Life Lessons and author of Preaching Through Romans
