The Reformers viewed the gospel as not merely one thing among many in the life of a church but rather the means by which the church exists. When the gospel is rightly declared and applied to God's people, the church becomes a creature of the Word. She understands, embraces, and lives out the reality of Christ's birth, life, death, and resurrection in more than her doctrinal statement. The gospel impacts all the church is and does.

Creature of the Word lays out this concept in full, first examining the rich, scripture-based beauty of a Jesus-centered church, then clearly providing practical steps toward forming a Jesus-centered church. Authors Matt Chandler, Eric Geiger, and Josh Patterson write what will become a centering discussion piece for those whose goal is to be part of a church that has its theology, culture, and practice completely saturated in the gospel.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 1/3/2014

    " A very thought provoking and interesting read, talks a lot about things often overlooked in the church some of the common things the church mistakenly does and what the church should truly strive to do and be. I certainly recommend this book to anyone, not just my friends who are shepherds. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Park Smith | 8/13/2013

    " Good treatment of what the Gospel is and its implication within all aspects of individual and church life. Probably also a good primer for a Staff read and discussion along with the ancillary videos. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 7/18/2013

    " Very helpful. I'm still reeling from Center Church, which has some overlap. Creature of the Word is much more accessible, which is wonderful because most of my friends would not be able to finish CC! But because of that it goes into less depth so I missed that. That's just me though. Very good book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 6/22/2013

    " It is a lot more meatier than The Explicit Gospel, thus taking a little longer to read & digest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen Hamby | 6/15/2013

    " This book is incredible. As a guy who is getting ready to start ministry it really put things in prospective for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 5/8/2013

    " Excellent. Best thought, which is in essence the theme of the book: "The church does not create the gospel; the gospel creates the church." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dr. David Steele | 4/26/2013

    " Strong book on pastoral ministry. Gospel-centered and Christ-exalting! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua Woodlief | 4/10/2013

    " Anyone planting a gospel centered church should read this book!!! It was an amazing help to me in terms of seeing how the gospel relates to every aspect of church! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick | 3/2/2013

    " Amazing and challenging book. I will be working through it in my head for a while. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew Shedd | 2/14/2013

    " This book is a must read for pastors, elders, and deacons alike. Chandler does an excellent job of reminding his fellow leaders that even the right actions, if not rooted in and formed by the gospel will find themselves faltering to produce true life change. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kala | 1/18/2013

    " Enjoyed the perspective on Church tremendously! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evan Taylor | 12/28/2012

    " Excellent book, great for anyone in leadership. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brent Rosendal | 12/22/2012

    " An encouraging read and a good reminder to keep the gospel at the center of one's ministry. The authors do a good job of how to do that, even within children's and youth ministries and they also give some ways in which one can evaluate the centrality of the gospel in one's ministry. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 12/17/2012

    " A great call to An ecclesiology that is Jesus centric. Read this Christian. "
