    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

    A pastor outlines the relationship between the gospel and all of Scripture and suggests helpful strategies for reading and interpreting the Bible correctly. When Christians read the Bible, they're often unaware of the ways in which their reading influences their interpretation. This is particularly evident when Christians are asked to show how the gospel is related to all of the Bible, not just the first four books of the New Testament. In this new booklet from the Gospel Coalition, Mike Bullmore brings clarity to the relationship between the gospel and all of Scripture. Bullmore begins by laying a theological foundation for understanding the gospel and the nature of God's Word. He then outlines principles for seeing Christ in Scripture and discusses helpful strategies for reading and interpreting the Bible properly. This booklet is an important resource for all Christians who don't understand that Scripture and the gospel are inextricably connected. The Gospel and Scripture offers a thoughtful explanation for point 2 of the Gospel Coalition's Confessional Statement. The coalition is an evangelical renewal movement dedicated to a Scripture-based reformation of ministry practices.

    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.

    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.

    In this brief overview two pastors outline central teachings concerning baptism and the Lord's Supper. The sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper have played an important role in the church since its earliest days. There has also been much disagreement within the church about how to understand them. Pastors Thabiti Anyabwile and J. Ligon Duncan have teamed up to outline the Bible's basic teaching about baptism and the Lord's Supper. Speaking from different traditions, they bring perspective to the discussion while both observing that baptism and the Lord's Supper should be fundamentally understood as pointing to something greater. This new booklet from the Gospel Coalition will bring clarity for those wanting to understand the importance of baptism and the Lord's Supper. The authors offer a thoughtful explanation for point 12 of the Gospel Coalition's Confessional Statement. The coalition is an evangelical renewal movement dedicated to a Scripture-based reformation of ministry practices.
