Book Review — “Community” by Peter Block

Pastor Matthew Best
3 min readMar 28

This is more than just a book. It’s a model of how to be together.

“Whatever it is you care about, to make the difference that you see requires a group of people to learn to trust each other and choose to cooperate for a larger purpose.” (Pg. xii)

And that right there is as good a summary for this book as there is. It’s a book about building trust. It’s a book about being in community. It’s a book about how to communicate with one another. It’s a book about belonging.
