Better Together
By Rusty George
Publisher: Bethany House
Genre: Christian Life
Release Date: 02/2018

Written with wit and insight, Better Together is George’s treatise on the divine design and corresponding benefits of community. He writes, “Where God’s people are living together in unity, it is there the Lord commands His blessing. And this blessing brings life evermore.”

Joy. Healing. Peace. All better together. It’s like a Jack Johnson song for the church. George encourages us to do life together—to “let others in on our pain” and so experience the anxiety-reducing, temptation-conquering environment that evolves as we help to carry each other’s burdens.

He’s got some nice pop culture references and some funny anecdotes to help illustrate his points. This book could catch on with small groups. It would make a nice “read and share” volume.
