    Charles Spurgeon, the great Baptist preacher of nineteenth-century London, is remembered today as the prince of preachers. However, the strength of Spurgeon s ministry went far beyond simple rhetorical skill. With a foundational commitment to the Bible, Spurgeon fearlessly taught the doctrines of grace and tirelessly held forth the free offer of salvation in Jesus Christ. In short, he was a firm believer in the truth of the gospel and the power of the gospel to save.

    In The Expository Genius of John Calvin, Dr. Steven J. Lawson delves into the practices, commitments, and techniques that made John Calvin, the great Reformer of the sixteenth century, such an effective preacher during his long pastorate at Saint Pierre Cathedral in Geneva, Switzerland. Dr. Lawson identifies thirty-two distinctives of Calvin s preaching, providing comments from Calvin s writings, quotations from Reformation scholars, and examples from Calvin s own sermons to reinforce his points. In the end, Dr. Lawson finds in Calvin a strong model for expository preaching and calls on modern pastors to follow the Reformer s example.

    Among followers of Jesus, great is often the enemy of good. The drive to be great—to be a success by the standards of the world—often crowds out the qualities of goodness, virtue, and faithfulness that should define the central focus of Christian leadership. In the culture of today’s church, successful leadership is often judged by what works, while persistent faithfulness takes a back seat. If a ministry doesn’t produce results, it is dropped. If people don’t respond, we move on. This pursuit of “greatness” exerts a crushing pressure on the local church and creates a consuming anxiety in its leaders. In their pursuit of this warped vision of greatness, church leaders end up embracing a leadership narrative that runs counter to the sacrificial call of the gospel story. When church leaders focus on faithfulness to God and the gospel, however, it’s always a kingdom-win—regardless of the visible results of their ministry. John the Baptist modeled this kind of leadership. As John’s disciples crossed the Jordan River to follow after Jesus, John freely released them to a greater calling than following him. Speaking of Jesus, John said: “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Joyfully satisfied to have been faithful to his calling, John knew that the size and scope of his ministry would be determined by the will of the Father, not his own will. Following the example of John the Baptist and with a careful look at the teaching of Scripture, Tim Suttle dares church leaders to risk failure by chasing the vision God has given them—no matter how small it might seem—instead of pursuing the broad path of pragmatism that leads to fame and numerical success.

    Best-selling author and ministry leader Thom S. Rainer drew an exceptional response when he posted a 500-word declaration about church membership to his daily blog. "I Am a Church Member" started a conversation about the attitudes and responsibilities of church members -- rather than the functional and theological issues -- that previous new member primers all but ignored. Thoughtfully expanded to book form, I Am a Church Member begins to remedy the outbreak of inactive or barely committed church members, addressing without apology what is expected of those who join a body of believers. When a person's attitude is consistently biblical and healthy, matters of giving, serving, and so forth will fall into place more naturally. Six intentional chapters with study questions guide this rising discussion: 1. I Will Be a Unifying Church Member 2. I Will Not Let the Church Be About My Preferences and Desires 3. I Will Pray for My Church Leaders 4. I Will Lead My Family to Be Healthy Church Members 5. I Will Be a Functioning Member 6. I Will Treasure Church Membership as a Gift

    This booklet outlines the Bible's teaching on the kingdom of God and provides insight on implications for Christians today. Contemporary people have difficulty with authority--Stephen Um opens his concise explanation of the Bible's teaching on the kingdom of God with these words. This new booklet from the Gospel Coalition is particularly timely in view of the postmodern rejection of authority. Um explores how the Bible uses the term "kingdom of God" and discusses its relevance and meaning for today. He offers a brief biblical theology of God's kingship as found in the Bible. Christian identity and community are ultimately tied to the kingdom of God, and Um details the implications the kingdom has for Christians. This booklet is a helpful overview of a central theological theme of the Bible. The Kingdom of God offers a thoughtful explanation for point 10 of the Gospel Coalition's Confessional Statement. The coalition is an evangelical renewal movement dedicated to a Scripture-based reformation of ministry practices.

    A pastor traces the extent and effects of sin in the world and draws readers to the Bible's teaching on sin and the fall. A quick glance at a newspaper will indicate that all is not right in the world. Where did hatred, death, and suffering come from? Why do we lie, cheat, and steal, and why does all this seem to be an unending cycle? Nothing is more important in understanding the human condition than to recognize the presence of sin in the world. In this new booklet from the Gospel Coalition, Reddit Andrews lays out the Bible's teaching on sin and the fall. He notes that we were not always this way, and that sin is something foreign to God's original design for creation. By defining sin and exploring its effects, Andrews shows readers that sin is absolutely pervasive, is completely universal, and leads to death. Sin and the Fall offers a thoughtful explanation for point 4 of the Gospel Coalition's Confessional Statement. The coalition is an evangelical renewal movement dedicated to a Scripture-based reformation of ministry practices.

    Pastor Sandy Willson shows that Christ's redemption is central to the Christian message and offers hope to a lost world. What separates Christianity from other religions? What makes the Christian message distinctly Christian? In this new booklet from the Gospel Coalition, pastor Sandy Willson demonstrates that Christianity is most fundamentally Christ's redemption. Willson traces the life of Christ, noting his humility before the cross and his exaltation after his death. He shows how Christ redeems us by accomplishing what we could not do. As our representative and substitute, Christ restores us to fellowship with God. This booklet is a helpful resource for those wanting to understand why the Christian message is distinctive. Christ's Redemption offers a thoughtful explanation for point 7 of the Gospel Coalition's Confessional Statement.

    A concise introduction to the doctrine of justification. What does it mean to be justified? Humanity is in a desperate state; our sins separate us from the holy God. To be justified through Christ means we are covered in his righteousness and God no longer looks on us as guilty sinners. In this joyous action there is a depth of meaning and theology, and in this new booklet from the Gospel Coalition Philip Ryken directs us to the Bible's rich teaching on the subject. He begins with our need for justification as found in the opening chapters of Romans and moves on from there, covering the source of justification, the basis for justification, and the place of imputation in justification. This booklet makes for an accessible introduction to this central doctrine. Justification offers a thoughtful explanation for point 8 of the Gospel Coalition's Confessional Statement. The coalition is an evangelical renewal movement dedicated to a Scripture-based reformation of ministry practices.
