This book is a deeply challenging book that deals with the fellowship of those who walk in the light of God as revealed in Jesus Christ. Not many people seem to know about Reuben Welch, a Christian writer whose humor and tender heart make his book a wonderful, poignant call to Christian action. His illustrations of how we Christians often dump someone hurting until they've shaped up is convicting. Who have I done that to, since I know people who've dumped me because of my baggage? Welch makes me think more deeply about the grace of Christ, and the kindness I, in attempting to reflect his character, can show to others.

This should be required reading for all Christians. It is a reminder of the most fundamental aspect of the Gospel - the Love of God. In this book Reuben explores how we experience that love and how our Fellowship together in Christ is fundamental in our fellowship with God the Father. Our faith does not exist in a vacuum, but in the real world experiences, which include tragedy, and illness, and death, as well as wonderful things like birth, and romance, and kindness.
A friend loaned me her paperback copy while we were at a retreat. This is a very readable book about love and community. It's written in short lines, but not as poetry. It's just that, like poetry, the author is very concise and you need the short lines make it easier to get what he is saying. At first, the message I got was that we need to go together, so us quick ones need to wait for the slow. But mulling it over, because his words rest in your mind, I am realizing that it is not that at all. What he is saying is that you can't love in a vacuum. I'm sure I haven't gotten his whole message, because this book takes some living with. I bought my own copy from Amazon and it is a nice hardback. Which is good, because this is not a read-once sort of book.
This is a book that will challenge your thoughts on love for God and neighbor and the need for fellowship. Easy read with great depth of meaning.
wonderful, touching commentary on I John. i read several passages from it to my Bible study group and received many favorable comments.
This book is really a barely-edited set of notes for a church retreat that Reuben Welch spoke at during the early 1970s. Like the 1990s, the late '60s and early '70s were abuzz with talk of community. But because it was all built on human idealism, the experiments in community in the '70s failed. That context of idealism and failure sets the context in which Welch gave this series of talks.
But like Dietrich Bonhoeffer in his classic book on community, Life Together, Welch points us away from human idealism and toward the divine reality of the community Jesus has actually made. It's not our place to make community; it's our place to see and recognize and live in and nurture the community that Jesus has made us to be. And what that means is that we should stop being so high minded and idealistic (which really leads to disdain for the people we're "stuck" with) and get on with loving the community God has made and put us in.
Contrary to what the other reviewer wrote, the book isn't written as poetry. It's basic prose that's written more for the ear than for the eye. But it is laid out is a way that leads the eye from one emphasis to another. That style was used very effectively by Peter Marshall in his manuscripted sermon notes (see Mr. Jones, Meet the Master) so that it would flow better as he read it.
So, don't read the book as poetry. It's not. Rather, hear the voice of the retreat speaker as you read each punchy line.
And more than that, learn to see the community that is and stop "lusting" after some ideal community somewhere else that doesn't actually exist.
It's really too bad that some books come along that are really worth reading, but perhaps there is little promotion, so besides a little word of mouth, very few ever hear about it and read it. We Really Do Need Each Other is one such book. It is a small book,simply written, but it contains Christian truth worth hearing. It speaks out against spiritual lone rangers, trying desperately to make it in an increasingly confused, scary, and despairing world. Just like pagans, many Christians live lives of silent desperation. Once in a while you come across a believer who says something like: "Oh, I don't go to church; I don't need it. I enjoy my own private relationship with God." It's not true. We need one another now more than ever. Check out this book if you can track down a copy.
This little book looks at first glance like 1970's encounter-group pop psychology, an impression that is helped along by the goofy faux-poetical typesetting of the lines. But this book is shaped and informed by Dr. Welch's long, close experience of the Greek text of the first epistle of St. John, as he taught it repeatedly to his college classes. The result is a simple and profound meditation on God's relationship with us through Jesus Christ, and the true nature of our relationship with each other as a result. And the tone of the book is light-hearted-- the author's evident humility is not that of a man who needs to put himself down, but rather of someone with enough trust in God's goodness to know that he doesn't need to take himself all that seriously. A delight and an edification.
