Free Stuff Fridays
August 19, 2011
This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is sponsored by Baker Books, a name that is well-known, I’m sure. Baker publishes many of Michael Horton’s books and today they want to give some of them away. They are offering 5 prize packages and each of the 5 winners will be able to select 2 of the following titles:
The Gospel Commission is the newest of these titles. Here is a brief description of it:
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.
Pastors and church leaders will value this frank and hopeful next-step exploration of the Great Commission as a call to renewed understanding and good practice.
Each winner will also receive a copy of John Stott’s Through the Bible, Through the Year devotional, which Baker’s just released in paperback.
Giveaway Rules: You may only enter the draw once. Simply fill out your name and email address to enter the draw. As soon as the winners have been chosen, all names and addresses will be immediately and permanently erased. Winners will be notified by email. The giveaway closes Saturday at noon.
