“Experiencing Church” Now – As It Was In The Beginning – by Rodrigo Abarca (a “hosted” free resource)

Greetings friends!

I’ve got a real treat to share with you to start off the week!

About a month and a half ago, I shared a resource with you that I was given permission to host on this blog: Principles for the Gathering of Believers Under the Headship of Jesus Christ.  The interest in that resource has been off the charts.  If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, please do so by following the link above!

A few weeks later, I came across another resource that, quite frankly, is on par with that one as to the richness of its content and the clarity of its expression.  This one was written by a brother from Chile, whom I was previously unfamiliar with, Rodrigo Abarca.  (Thanks to Josh Lawson for posting the link on his blog that led me to it.)  The depth of revelation in his writing ranks right up there, in my estimation, with those of Watchman Nee, T. Austin-Sparks and DeVern Fromke.  In fact, if you appreciate those brothers, you may find this resource to be to a clearly expressed distillation of their teachings concerning the Church and the spiritual life, with his own experience and revelation added in. I cannot more highly recommend it!

I contacted the publishers recently and received permission to host it on this blog.  Under the Resources tab, therefore, I’ve posted a reproduction of the “Forward” page from the book, “Experiencing Church” Now – As It Was In The Beginning – by Rodrigo Abarca.  On that page are also links to the individual chapters of the book online.

[UPDATE: A few years after publishing this post, the links to the book online became inactive.  In addition to the Foreward that is found on the Resource page linked above, the Conclusion of the book can also be accessed here on the blog.  Please see this post.  Beyond that, it seems this resource is now no longer available, which is a great loss.  Please relish these portions that remain!]

David

    Thanks, David! I immediately followed the link and started reading. What a blessing. It is clear that this brother has undertaken his studies at The School of Christ! I have a good mind to print this work out and distribute it at our gatherings here in Bloemfontein. (It seems to be in the public domain).

      That’s great, Tobie! Like Bro. Spark’s works, this is not copyrighted but in the “Lord’s domain.” 🙂 Glad you enjoyed and will be using it to bless the saints there in SA!
      Love and blessings!
