Biblical, spiritual, practical and sensible, this book fills a gaping hole in contemporary Christian literature. Curtis Thomas pours into these pages over forty years of fruitful experience in local church life and witness. They deserve to be widely read and will surely be of outstanding help to all who do so with a willingness to learn.


“From the pen of a veteran Reformed pastor comes this hugely helpful compendium of practical Christian wisdom to lead believers into pulling their weight in a local church. It is the best thing on this theme that I have yet seen. Like the Bible, this book should be read once a year, and consulted often; not only by Baptists, but wherever strong life in Christ is the congregation’s goal. Some volumes merit rave reviews; this simple, down-to-earth publication is one of them.”

Dr. James I. Packer (1926 – 2020)
Theologian, Author of many volumes, including Knowing God and Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God

Life in the Body of Christ is a practical and comprehensive handbook that should prove useful to every layperson in the local church. To my knowledge, there is nothing like it in print that addresses so many issues in such down-to-earth fashion. Even difficult subjects so often encountered in the church are faced head-on in a loving but insightful manner.”

Jerry Bridges (1929 – 2016)
Theologian, Author of many volumes, including The Pursuit of Holiness and Trusting God

Life in the Body of Christ is yet another much-needed book from Curtis Thomas packed with theological soundness, pastoral wisdom and practical guidance. Every church member should read it and use it regularly. How many problems in churches could be solved quickly if the wise advice contained in this volume were conscientiously followed by church members.”

Joel R. Beeke
Pastor, Heritage Reformed Congregation, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Author of many volumes, including A Quest for Full Assurance and A Reader’s Guide to Reformed Literature


For almost 50 years Curtis Thomas pastored several Baptist Churches in central Arkansas, and retired in 1998 as the Executive Pastor of The Bible Church of Little Rock. In addition to Life in the Body of Christ, he authored Practical Wisdom for Pastors and was co-author of two other works: The Five Points of Calvinism: Defined, Defended and Documented and Romans: An Interpretive Outline.

In his middle 80’s he continues to teach a number of home classes verse by verse through Paul’s letter to the Romans. They have three sons and five grandchildren.
