Well I’m back… sort of. I’m not returning to full post strength due to a week long speaking engagement coming up soon.
But have no fear because Crossway is here and they’ve brought the noise with three new books for your summer reading pleasure.
The first is 'Experiencing Truth' by our brother Anthony ’ATL’ Carter with contributions by ‘Iron’ Mike Leach and ‘Papa Bear’ Ken Jones.
ET presents the biblical basis for choosing and attending a church and even offers helpful wisdom on sermon preparation, a sermon outline and sample orders of worship. You can check it out as well as order by going here.
The next is ‘What Is A Healthy Church Member’ by our fellow elder Thabiti ‘Mix-Master’ Anyabwile. This is a sequel or companion to Mark Dever’s What Is a Healthy Church. Like its title this book will outline what a healthy church member is. Drop by here for more info.
Last, but most def not least our brother Eric ‘the veep’ Redmond asks and answers ‘Where Are All The Brothers' - Straight Answers to Men’s Questions about the Church. This work dives right into the reasons for why many African-American men don’t bother to darken the doors of our churches. More info is available here.
As you can see all of these crucial works touch on the God’s will and work through His church. And all will be of great help to those who love our Lord, His gospel and the church for whom He died. Praise the Lord that Crossway has partnered with these good and faithful men to address the needs and issues so important in today’s church and cultural context.
Please take the time to purchase, read and discuss these with your pastor, church members and especially with those you know of who’ve check out of church.
To Him Who Loves Us…
