A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance
By Fred G. Zaspel
For a long time we needed the reminder that our churches should be “gospel-centered,” and that reminder has been wonderfully sounded now for some years – so much, in fact, that it has often become a mere catch-phrase. We have to guard against that, but it is a continually-needed reminder nonetheless. And we also need to learn how to implement that biblically-endorsed idea into the church’s entire identity and ministry. That is Wilson’s goal here, and he offers very helpful specific counsel for pastors and church leaders. Just what does a “gospel-driven church” look like? What should we be looking for in our churches to measure our “success”? What are the right metrics?
Wilson’s challenge to the contemporary church is needed and his counsel is sound and informed. Very popularly written, simple, and engaging. An excellent refresher if you already “agree” and a friendly but clear challenge to any who may not yet “get it.”
