Summary

Do you long to be loved unconditionally - to be able to share who you really are without masks or pretense? Is it your desire to be a part of a family of believers who are changing into the likeness of Christ? Do you wonder if such a fellowship actually exists?

"Yes, it does," says Larry Crabb. He calls it "The Safest Place on Earth." Rather than a place for people to display their goodness and hide their failures in fear of censure, the church should be open, supportive, and compassionate in dealing with our weaknesses, says Dr. Crabb. In such a place, there is no expectation that people have arrived at some level of perfection; it's a place where people journey toward God.

With compelling narrative, Larry Crabb presents an inspiring new vision of this wonderful place where we learn what it means to "be like Jesus," what the process of getting there looks like, and how we can act as God's agents in each other's lives to help each other stay on course.

The most honest book on the shelf

Crabb challenges Christians to be honest with God, ourselves and a spiritual community. I was taken aback by Crabb's person honesty in this book. It freed me to be honest about what I am really like, so I can explore how to allow God to make me what He wants me to be. He sets a new standard of what Christain fellowship should be.

What a refreshing read! Worth every minute.

Larry reminds us of the basics of community and what a wonderful safe place it is, and why Jesus wanted us to "never forsake them".
I read this all in one sitting and will read it over and over. The author read it himself, and as a result it is like sitting down in the living room with him and having a conversation.

I highly recommend this! Take the plunge, it is worth it.
