Not a Fan
by Kyle Iderman
In recent years, an organic movement has begun in pockets of the evangelical community to live out James 1:27. All over America, people and churches are discovering opportunities to care for the fatherless in very creative and practical ways. God is awakening a spirit in the contemporary evangelical church to live out the Gospel through the care of orphans.
Adopted for Life
by Russell Moore
It's easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily...
BUT WHO DO YOU KNOW WHO LIVES LIKE THAT? DO YOU?
In Radical, David Platt challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple--then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as a "successful" suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus.
Finally, he urges you to join in The Radical Experiment -- a one-year journey in authentic discipleship that will transform how you live in a world that desperately needs the Good News Jesus came
How To Be A World-Class Christian opens the window to global Christianity for any person who desires to be part of what God is doing in the world. Building on the foundations of information, prayer, experience and investigation, How To Be A World-Class Christian shows the reader how to expand in understanding Scripture, increase in global praying and intensify cross-cultural outreach—beginning right at home. Using practical tools and observations from everyday life, this book invites every reader to stretch his or her knowledge of the purposes of God in the world and then to take the steps necessary to start responding to the opportunities we face. Patrick Johnstone said, “There is a YOU-shaped hole in God’s Kingdom—find it and fill it.” Finding and filling the place in the world that God has designed for you is what How to Be a World-Class Christian is designed to do.
Building a Discipling Culture
There is a discipleship crisis in the Western church. Many Christians may come to a worship service, join a small group or even tithe, but few have the kind of transformed lives we read about in Scripture. If we made disciples like Jesus made them, we wouldn't have a problem finding leaders or seeing new people come to faith. Building a Discipling Culture is the product of 25+ years of hands-on discipleship practice — developed in a post-Christian context, tackling how to make the types of missional disciples Jesus spoke of.
