Book Review: Word-Centered Church by Jonathan Leeman

Book Review: Word-Centered Church by Jonathan Leeman

Word-Centered Church is nothing new and that in itself is wonderful. Jonathan Leeman brings an ancient thought of basing all aspects of the church on the Word of God back to the modern church. When many churches today laud themselves as “Bible-believing,” Leeman goes even further to show that everything the local church is to do flows from the Bible. The Word is the spiritual food of the church and Leeman walks the reader through understanding how to have a proper diet of the Word throughout the week not just on Sundays. One of the most helpful aspects of Word-Centered Church was seeing worship as essentially reciting the Word of God back to God Himself. This is beautiful thought as it’s both true but also logical in that what words could better describe God than God’s own Word? Every church leader should read this book and truly grasp the centrality of the Word in the life of the church.
