What the Critics Say

"Christ is the greatest message in the world, and delivering it is the greatest mission. But are we losing our focus? Are we being distracted, sometimes even by good things? Zealous Christians disagree sharply today over the church’s proper ministry and mission. Kevin DeYoung and Greg Gilbert bring us back to first things in an age of mission creep and distraction. Offering balanced wisdom, this book will give us not only encouragement but discomfort exactly where we all need it. It’s the kind of biblical sanity we need at this moment." (Michael S. Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary, California)

    "Bringing us back to the core"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is a great resource to use as a lense to reflect upon the current rush towards a social gospel message and reminds us what the core belief of Christians should be... the cross! I found this book very helpful.

    "Inspiring and Thoughtful Content"

    This book provides an unapologetic, refreshing, biblical-based perspective on the responsibilities of Christians. The only disappointment was that when the book quoted scripture, the narrator assumed an almost-Ossie Davis tone which detracted from the content because it wasn't genuine.

    "A Sober Minded Response to Liberalism "

    As in his other works, DeYoung manages to give a very sober and realistic response to pendulum swings within the Church. His take on social justice, shalom, and other sexy evangelical buzzwords will add needed clarity to an American church struggling to make sense of the new rise of liberalism.
