We at FTC are really excited about the latest book from managing editor Jared C. Wilson. The Gospel-Driven Church is for ministry leaders interested in transitioning their church away from pragmatism and more toward a conscientious gospel-centeredness. As such, it is full of application points and proactive pointers, and even tells the (fictitious) story of a pastor leading such a transition in his own church throughout the chapters.
Published by Zondervan and subtitled "Uniting Church Growth Dreams with the Metrics of Grace," The Gospel-Driven Church helps churches probe deeper than even the blessings of numeric and resource growth to appropriately gauge their spiritual health and work toward orientation around the work of Jesus.
Matt Chandler says, "This book should soothe weary leaders’ bones and free them to point freely and passionately to the beauty of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.”
Eric Geiger calls it "a must-read for those in ministry leadership."
Clint Pressley says this book is "the magna carta for gospel-centered change."
