Learning from Gospel Farmers
Posted: 06 March 2013 / Colossians
5 Christian books in 5 weeks.
As we have been making our way through our Jesus + Nothing = Everything series in Colossians, we have been called to see the importance of maturity as a Christian and placing ourselves in good soil, under 'good farmers, drinking in nutrients, pulling out weeds, and seeing fruit grow. One of the blessings we have been given by God is the printing press that has allowed farmers from all over the world to help Christian's grow.
So, to inspire you, I am taking up the challenge of 5 Christian books from the Re:Lit Series in 5 weeks, calling Vine Church to see the importance and joy of reading good Christian books.
The Re:Lit Series by Resurgence, a ministry partner of Mars Hills Church, seeks to produce material that is not only accessible to the regular church member, but also material that has a depth in biblical wisdom and practise. Books in the series are written by pastors, trainers, missionaries, theological scholars, and basically those who love Jesus, the church, and the lost in this world.
I will be reading and reviewing the following books from the Re:Lit series, in hope that Vine Church would see the delight in learning from those who walk with us in the faith.
- Scandalous by Don Carson Buy Online
- The Explicit Gospel by Matt Chandler Buy Online
- Gospel Coach by Scott Thomas & Tom Wood Buy Online
- Gospel Centered Discipleship by Jonathan Dodson Buy Online
- Doctrine by Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears Buy Online
Each of these books will be displayed on Sunday alongside a printed review (which will also be on the blog), and online access to the Book Depository so you can order your own copy online. Please pray for my growth in Christ as I am discipled by the authors of these books, and pray that our church will continue to be a church of great Gospel depth, growing in the knowledge of God.
