In this candid and hopeful ...
In this candid and hopeful book, Michael Horton challenges us to reorient our faith and our Christian practice toward the transformative, Christ-centered gospel--both in the church and in the world.
"Mike Horton has once again hit the nail on the head. With engaging clarity he demonstrates that the gospel is not just for non-Christians; it's for Christians too. Horton's book is a flavorsome reminder that in order for Christians to make a difference in this world, we must be driven by something otherworldly--namely, the gospel."--Tullian Tchividjian, pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and author of Unfashionable
"Michael Horton is one who understands the time. More than a fad, a twelve-step program, or a forty-day challenge, Horton reminds us that the gospel is the everyday brick and mortar of a life built on the promise of eternal life in Jesus Christ. Before you read another book, read this one."--Anthony Carter, lead pastor of East Point Church, East Point, Georgia, and author of On Being Black and Reformed
