Wells has the gift of being insightful, intuitive, and wise in his understanding of Christianity and how it relates or does not relate to the present culture. With all the talk and writing about the emergents, postmodernists, and post-conservatives, Wells demonstrates how it is producing a kind of Protestantism, or even an evangelicalism, that is not standing firmly on a Scriptural foundation.
The authors are committed to the task of doing what many good books on a Christian worldview fail to do, something that we believe is absolutely critical to the world and life view – keeping it connected with the kingdom of God. The book gives a good overall concept of an approach to Christian discipleship from a kingdom perspective.
Welcome! We have chosen this issue to highlight our 2008 Discipleship Conference, Making Visible God’s Invisible Kingdom, which took place Nov. 13-15, 2008. This conference was strategic to the PCA not simply because of the speakers, program, or arrangements, but because it was about the kingdom of God, remembering that our Lord came preaching the Good News about the kingdom. You can read the summary inside, but you can also take advantage of CDs and DVDs from the conference.
From the beginning, the PCA has had things that have made it special; and I have had hopes that our denomination would set the tone for others to follow: It has been my positive experience to see the PCA grow from its small roots in mainly the southeastern part of the country to a church that has spread all over North America… The PCA has not only had unity of commitment to the Sovereign Lord, His Word, and His church, reflected by a common confessional commitment, but it has had diversity within that framework.
Weary of churches that seek to entertain rather than teach, longing after the true meat of the Word,young people are pursuing doctrine. Discover how God is moving among the young, the restless, and the Reformed.
People are not being spiritually fed, cared for, or given an opportunity to serve. What’s the solution? Coffee house type churches? House churches? Internet community worship? Or nothing at all? Pastors, read this book and get your leaders to read it and discuss it.
