Putting Amazing Back into Grace

Putting Amazing Back into Grace
Paperback:
264 pages

Publisher:
Baker
(2011)
button-click-to-learn-more"The gospel is a very specific announcement," says Michael Horton. "It's a message delivered from God to people in a precarious and hazardous spot--that is, to people like you and me." But what exactly is that message? What does it mean to be "saved by grace"?

Now revised and updated, Putting Amazing Back into Grace reminds us of the Reformation's radical view of God and his saving grace, the liberating yet humbling truth that we contribute nothing to our salvation. Horton lays out the scriptural basis for this doctrine and its implications for a vibrant evangelical faith.

The Gospel Commission

The Gospel Commission
Hardcover:
116 pages

Publisher:
Baker
(April 2011)
button-click-to-learn-moreMany churches in America today want to be powerful, relevant, and influential in personal and social transformation. A plethora of programs for outreach, discipleship, and spiritual disciplines are available at any bookstore and on countless websites. Yet what we need most is a renewed understanding of and commitment to the Great Commission. We assume that we already know the nature of this commission and the appropriate methods of carrying it out.

But Michael Horton contends that it too often becomes our mission instead of God's. At a time when churches are zealously engaged in creating mission statements and strategic plans, he argues that we must ask ourselves anew whether we are ambassadors, following the script we've been given, or building our own kingdoms with our own blueprint.

Pastors and church leaders will value this frank and hopeful next-step exploration of the Great Commission as a call to renewed understanding and good practice.

Justified

Justified: Modern Reformation Essays on the Doctrine of Justification
Hardcover:
116 pages

Publisher:
Modern Reformation
(November 2010)
Learn MoreGod justifies the ungodly": Paul's statement in Romans 4:5 has brought comfort and provoked controversy throughout the history of the church. Historically, most Protestants have seen the Reformation as a rediscovery of this gospel truth-indeed, justification as "the article by which the church stands or falls." In our day, however, neither the Reformers' account of the doctrine nor their appraisal of its significance can be taken for granted. Through various movements within Protestant theology and biblical studies, fresh (and not so fresh) challenges have made it imperative for us to reevaluate the Scriptures and the systematic as well as historical arguments that have been persuasive for so many Christians in previous eras.

Zondervan
(August 2010)

Previously Titled:
Too Good To Be True
button-click-to-learn-moreThe good news that God's Word proclaims is a recipe to use in times of disaster. That is to say, it comes as a relevant announcement only to those who are in trouble for one reason or another. A Place for Weakness, formerly titled Too Good to Be True, by award-winning Michael Horton, calls for more realism in facing life's challenges and a richer view of God and his purposes to match them.

The Gospel-Driven Life

The Gospel-Driven Life: Being Good News People in a Bad News World
Hardcover:
271 pages

Publisher:
Baker Books
(October 1, 2009)
Learn MoreIn his well-received Christless Christianity Michael Horton offered a prophetic wake-up call for a self-centered American church. With The Gospel-Driven Life he turns from the crisis to the solutions, offering his recommendations for a new reformation in the faith, practice, and witness of contemporary Christianity. This insightful book will guide readers in reorienting their faith and the church's purpose toward the good news of the gospel. The first six chapters explore that breaking news from heaven, while the rest of the book focuses on the kind of community that the gospel generates and the surprising ways in which God is at work in the world. Here is fresh news for Christians who are burned out on hype and are looking for hope.

If the news is big enough, it can change your world. Think of the news stories that have rocked our nation. Men on the moon. Victory in war. Celebrity deaths. These are nothing compared to the magnitude of the news of what God did in Jesus Christ. Distinguished from all religions and philosophies of life, the Christian faith is, at its heart, "good news." The church originates, flourishes, and fulfills its mission as that part of God's world that has been redeemed and redefined by this strange announcement that seems foolish and powerless to the rest of the world. This book explores the greatest story ever told and the surprising ways in which God is at work, gathering a people for his feast in a fast-food world.
