Bonhoeffer begins his book Life Together with a quote from Psalms 133 verse 1: 'Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity', followed by several examples of times when we are to come together through praise. He writes that community is not something to be taken for granted but a necessity of the church functioning as it must as a living and vibrant organism, what he called a 'community of love'. The book has become a spiritual classic in which many Christians of a wide variety of backgrounds and contexts have found meaning and encouragement.

Dwelling in the household of God
Learning Network Book Club recommendations from Revd Simon Sutcliffe. In her remarkable first book, God Dwells With Us: Temple Symbolism in the Fourth Gospel, Mary L. Coloe, P.B.V.M., explored the profound insight of John's Gospel expressed in Jesus ' invitation to his disciples: Make your home in me, as I make mine in you (John 15:4). For the gospel's author and audience, the dwelling of God among humans was, above al, the Jerusalem Temple. The gospel traces how 'after the trauma of the destruction of the Temple 'the Johannine community came to expand and deepen its knowledge of God's dwelling among humans, finding it now in the person of Jesus and in the community of believers.
