August 20, 2016 — Leave a comment



Today is the birthday of Marva Dawn, one of the theologians who has been most influential for our congregation at Englewood Christian Church.

To mark the occasion, we offer the following introductory reading guide to her most significant works.

We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and offered a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve also included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.



1) Truly the Community: Romans 12 and How to Be the Church

This work has deeply shaped our life together. Truly the Community is a book that a wide cross-section of the church read and discussed over a decade ago. Its ideas continue to challenge and form us.
