The Reformers viewed the gospel as not merely one thing among many in the life of a church but rather the means by which the church exists. When the gospel is rightly declared and applied to God’s people, the church becomes "a creature of the Word". She understands, embraces, and lives out the reality of Christ’s birth, life, death, and resurrection in more than her doctrinal statement. The gospel impacts all the church is and does.
Creature of the Word lays out this concept in full, first examining the rich, scripture-based beauty of a Jesus-centered church, then clearly providing practical steps toward forming a Jesus-centered church. Authors Matt Chandler, Eric Geiger, and Josh Patterson write what will become a centering discussion piece for those whose goal is to be part of a church that has its theology, culture, and practice completely saturated in the gospel.
The speaker is boring but the content is great. Gospel centered method in full detail
i would recommend this read for aby church or any believer who is seeking even more depth abd understanding of the mission of the church in tbis workd
It's easy to follow new ways & ideas of "doing church". Let these authors bring you back to the main thing & reignite what God desires to drive us in everything we do- the Gospel. Practical yet never straying from what Jesus taught. Real life without platitudes. Thanks Matt, Eric & Josh!
I really enjoyed this book. It gives new understanding of the church and its function according to the gospel and the part we play.
