Wait for It . . . Wait for It . . .

Here's the publisher's blurb . . .

When did the good news become just good advice?

Christianity doesn't work as just a moral philosophy or code of ethics. It makes sense only when it is built upon the foundation of the gospel, the good news. The simple message that God has done everything he requires to reconcile sinners to himself is not just the church's slogan, but its lifeblood.

In this candid and hopeful book, Michael Horton challenges us to reorient our faith and our practice toward the transformative, Christ-centered gospel--both in the church and in the world. 


"Mike Horton has once again hit the nail on the head. With engaging clarity he demonstrates that the gospel is not just for non-Christians; it's for Christians too. In compelling ways he shows that the gospel doesn't just ignite the Christian life; it's the fuel that keeps Christians going every day. Horton's book is a flavorsome reminder that in order for Christians to make a difference in this world, we must be driven by something otherworldly--namely, the gospel."--Tullian Tchividjian, pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and author of Unfashionable

"In this timely and refreshing work Michael Horton invites Christians to step off the treadmills we have fashioned and to rest fully in the gospel, which announces what God has graciously granted in the person and work of his son, Jesus Christ our Savior."--Ken Jones, pastor, Greater Union Baptist Church, Compton, California

"Michael Horton is one who understands the time. In Christless Christianity, Horton diagnosed the evangelical dilemma. In The Gospel-Driven Life he provides the solution. More than a fad, a twelve step program, or a forty-day challenge, Horton reminds us that the gospel is the everyday brick and mortar of a life built on the promise of eternal life in Jesus Christ. Before you read another book, read this one."--Anthony Carter, lead pastor, East Point Church, East Point, Georgia, and author of On Being Black and Reformed

Looks like a good book. I ordered 30 copies for the House of Bibles already.

I do not doubt it will be a solid book, but I am SICK of Christian authors describing faith or anything good as "driven" by anything. The word driven consistently describes God's displeasure. We are to be submissive to God, led by the Spirit, renewed by the Word. I told my elder (Voddie Baucham) that the only problem I had with his book, "Family Driven Faith", was the title.

9 Marks did it right when they named their book on church "The Deliberate Church" - in opposition to the one that is "purpose driven". No Christian should tout "driven" as something good - it's consistently a sign of bad.
