I promise that I will eventually get around to posting more than book deals and such. However, Michael Horton’s new book The Gospel Commission: Recovering God’s Strategy for Making Disciples is on sale at Westminster Bookstore at 50% off your first copy and 40% off all additional copies. The sale runs through tomorrow so be sure to order your copies quickly. Horton is a solid theologian and clear writer so you will undoubtedly benefit from this book. Here’s a brief description:
Many churches in America today want to be powerful, relevant, and influential in personal and social transformation. A plethora of programs for outreach, discipleship, and spiritual disciplines are available at any bookstore and on countless websites. Yet what we need most is a renewed understanding of and commitment to the Great Commission. We assume that we already know the nature of this commission and the appropriate methods of carrying it out.
But Michael Horton contends that it too often becomes our mission instead of God’s. At a time when churches are zealously engaged in creating mission statements and strategic plans, he argues that we must ask ourselves anew whether we are ambassadors, following the script we’ve been given, or building our own kingdoms with our own blueprint.
Also…Westminster has extended the sale on Thriving at College until tomorrow. If you’re still interested in that book but missed the original deadline for the deal then here is your second chance.
