    Putting Amazing Back into Grace

    “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

    Many 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.

    The Gospel-Driven Life

    In 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.

    Christless Christianity

    Christians have always had their differences, but never in church history have there been so many statistics indicating that many Christians today are practicing what can only be described as “Christless Christianity.”

    Christless Christianity guides the reader to a greater understanding of a big problem within the American religious setting, namely the creeping fog of countless sermons in churches across the country that focus on moralistic concerns and personal transformation rather than the theology of the cross.

    Michael Horton’s analysis of the contemporary church points believers back to the power of a gospel that should never be assumed.
