Why do christians title books like this? Being driven is consistently a bad thing in Scripture. We and our churches are to be fed by the Word of God, led by the Spirit of God, for the Glory of God and Christ. Let the goats and bovines of the lost world be driven. Rant aside, I have no doubt Horton's book is biblically solid.

Unless Horton has more pull than I (and that is a certainty), the publisher "informs" you of the book's title when they agree to publish your book.

While the author has some input, a committee at the publisher makes the final determination at the same time they develop the promotional campaign which will support the book. That is just how it is . . . Marketing is a huge part of this. And if publishers know anything it is how to sell books. That is what they do.

Manfred, time to get over it and move on . . .

Why? Mine should be here in a day or three.

Thanks for your explanation of how titles are assigned. Not being a book author, that's news to me. I'm "over it" - I simply dislike inaccurate terms being applied to biblical matters. As I said, I have no doubt the book is solid - I've heard nothing but solid from Mr. Horton.

I thought the title was cleverly devised to attract some of the Rick Warren market (you know, with his "PURPOSE driven life"). My copy has been on the way for several months... any day now....

"cleverly devised to attract some of the Rick Warren market (you know, with his "PURPOSE driven life")"

That's what I assumed it was playing off of. My copy arrived today.

lee n. field,

Since when is it a good thing to use worldly methods to "market" the Gospel? This is what led folk such as Warren to embrace Finney and Schuller, et. al. - the desire to "win friends and influence people". We cannot enhance the effectiveness of the Holy Spirit by tweaking our methods.

"I simply dislike inaccurate terms being applied to biblical matters."

It's simply a play on the PDL implying that Horton's work contains pwnage of Warren's heretical ideas.

Often, good marketing involves creating a fault line.

I'm holding it in my hands. Pays to have a wife who works for Baker Publishing. :D

It was a good read, but not nearly as important a volume as Christless Christianity.

I'm about 3 chapters in. So far I'd say, if you've listened to White Horse Inn for any length of time, it will all sound very familiar. I can almost hear in my head Mike Horton reading this, as the intro and close of WHI episodes.

This book, like “Christless Christianity,” is nothing short of antinomian let go and let God theology. Immerse yourself in the gospel narrative and everything else is just automatic. It is grievous error. Please don't bore me with all of his quotes that supply cover for this fact. Both books are full of glaring contradictions to the plain sense of scripture, especially the concept of emphasizing the “gospel narrative” to the total exclusion of any effort on our part to be a testimony before the world. This is what he is plainly saying on pages 117-119 of CC. Also, his strong insinuation that anything short of Gospel Sanctification is a false gospel, set's himself up as a modern reformer in the order of Martin Luther and others. Trust me, Horton is no Martin Luther and I find his claim against the evangelical church pathetic and arrogant.
