Christianity Today Interviews Mike Horton

There's a  great interview of Mike Horton by Mark Galli in the latest Christianity Today covering Michael's two newest books, Christless Christianity and the Gospel-Driven LifeClick here

There's even a Bible study based on Mike's books at the end of the article.  Click here

What on earth is the world coming to?  John Frame doesn't like Mike's Christless Christianity, but CT gives Mike a major plug?????

Truly a sign that we are indeed in the last days!

I read that interview, led there by a link from another blog. Here's what I posted there:

I've read the first page of the interview - looks excellent! Our elders recently told us how they had to learn to preach Christ in every sermon - as the center of God's plan of redemption - rather than preaching moralizing exhortations to try harder from the Old Testament.

My wife and I have been consistently blessed by this Christ centered preaching - the Bible is more alive and relevant than any pragmatic "how-to" message could.

What Horton emphasizes is what the Bible commands - preaching the whole counsel with Christ in every message.

I should have read the whole article before commenting. It's all good! I've been trying to convince people for years that personal testimony is nice but it's not the Gospel! Horton's comments on community are one thing our church makes sure we understand - Lot and his daughters show us that isolation from God's people is dangerous; we cannot run away from sin (it inhabits us) so we must have fellowship with others who are redeemed.

I do not like the title of his book - don't think we should be driven by anything. But I do think the book is excellent, from everything I've read of it. I would be disappointed otherwise, as I have high expectations of Michael Horton :-)

What was Frame's objections? The book looks interesting.

It doesn't matter whether the editorial board of CT agrees with Horton's books or not, if they see a thriving market for it, they're going to tap into that market. Less crassly, but just as pragmatically, even if they disagree with Horton, they're going to want to start some sort of interaction about it.

Either way is good enough for me. Whether they promote Horton's books out of greed or in the spirit of debate, ultimately it gives a broader audience to the need for Christ to be preached for justification and sanctification, and therefore I rejoice. (With apologies to the apostle Paul)
