This is the third book in the Apprentice Trilogy, and for me, it is the most insightful and challenging. I enjoyed the first two Apprentice books(The Good and Beautiful God: Falling in Love With the God Jesus Knows (The Apprentice Series) and The Good and Beautiful Life: Putting on the Character of Christ (The Apprentice Series)), which dealt with issues of who God is and how we personally respond to Him, and this book takes the next step by exploring the idea of how we work these changed lives out in community. A reader may expect this book to focus entirely within the walls of a church, and that is where most of the attention goes, but I was pleasantly surprised to see the way that Smith challenges readers to look at the impact they have on people outside their church and inside small accountability groups within a church. I was also challenged by Smith's consistent efforts to bring all of his recommendations back to God's word, even when that leads to an unpopular suggestion that a congregation not sever ties with a denomination that has gone astray in some theological area (I think, on that point, Smith's message of reconciliation and commitment not to divide unnecessarily would benefit from a discussion of how passionate Paul was about differences of opinion on, say, circumcision - he may still end up at the same place, but I would love to hear him get there). While this book is great on its own, I highly recommend that readers tackle the books in order to get the most out of each one, especially in the context of a small group where people can challenge each other. I have started buying copies of The Good and Beautiful God for friends in my church, hoping that we can grow closer to God with them, and The Good and Beautiful Community reassures me that I need to start planning on giving away copies of the entire series. Everyone should read these books.

It has thought me how to live life through the word of our Holy Father and His son Jesus. It has enlighten me with the knowledge to live my life to the fullest and to discern the everyday things in life. I have been made aware of Gods intentions for my life and to understand things in a much better perspective than I ever had before. I highly recommend it . No matter if you buy it for your personal use or if you bought it for use at your Christian Recovery Bible study at your church, you will benefit largely from the teachings and the soul training that this book offers.

This three part series is water to a thirsty soul. It is not legalistic; it is life giving. We went through all three books in a small Apprenticeship group at church. Our lives and our community together continue to be changed because of it. We will continue to come back to these resources again and again as we allow the Holy Spirit to keep forming us into the image of Jesus.

This one was challenging. JBS wrote things I've needed to hear. Now, I need to heed his exhortation. I loved the Good and Beautiful series. This one has the best reader.

Excellent for those desiring a deeper walk with Christ who can share this with like-minded folks. This is book 3 of a trilogy. There may be some advantage to reading them in order, but it's not madatory. The entire trilogy is five stars. Very deep, yet easy to understand and has great practical application exercises.

The whole series by James Bryan Smith is wonderful. This book is certainly as good if not better than the rest. This book follows the apprentice series format and gives you plenty of Soul Training and guidance to apply to living in the Community as an apprentice of Jesus Christ. I highly recommend this series as transformative rather than just informational.

This is book 3 in a series. I am doing the book in a small group. I'm not as thrilled with the soul training exercises as in the last two books, partly because they are not really accomplishable in a week. On the plus side, they may come in handy in the future,... Never know.
I've enjoyed his take on false narratives. It has really made me think about my beliefs and why they are what they are.
This entire series is the most transformative spiritual books that I have ever studied. Start with the Good and Beautiful God and study them with a group.
