Listener Opinions

    " One of the most debated issues today in evangelicalism is: what is the church for? The amount of confusion on this issue / variance of opinion is absolutely amazing. The issues are a bit complicated and DeYoung/Gilbert do a great job of explaining a well-thought theological answer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter N. | 1/30/2014

    " I like DeYoung a lot. However, this book was a bit of a disappointment. There were some pretty good sections, but he ended up stopping short of how the preaching of the Gospel and discipling of the nations changes cultures or if it even does at all. I think he is critiquing the emergent church/social justice church models, which made a lot of what he said seem like common sense to me. Maybe some people need that, but it did not add much to what I already knew, even though I have never explicitly studied social justice. Also without a post-mil eschatology you basically end up with: Go preach the Gospel and disciple the nations, but don't expect a whole lot to change. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luke Landry | 1/26/2014

    " I found this book to be biblically balanced and helpful in answering many ecclesiastical questions. I believe the emphasis on gospel-centered discipleship is warranted. And I also enjoyed the chapters on social justice where they thoroughly examined about eleven passages of scripture that talk about justice. I find that kind of exegetical vigor extremely helpful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kingsley | 1/17/2014

    " While a little long winded in places, it is generally good. I especially enjoyed the sections looking at more OT historical items, such as the jibulee year (and how it is often misunderstood), the scapegoat sacrificial system and the word Shalom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon | 11/14/2013

    " great readable technical treatment and application of several NT and OT key mission texts. Very driven toward declarative great commission focus. Last chapter was an enjoyable fiction interaction between a new church planter and a seasoned inner-city pastor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ChristaAnne | 3/20/2013

    " Appreciated the fact that the authors examine lots of Scripture when presenting the different positions/views of what the mission of the church should be. Also appreciated the graciousness toward those who may disagree with them. Very Scriptural, objective, and balanced book. Highly recommend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 4/15/2012

    " Highly recommended. This book is so helpful especially in this day and age when social justice is the fad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen | 1/2/2012

    " A very helpful and concise read. Seems more entry level for this subject matter but the simplistic precision is extremely helpful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauralea | 12/21/2011

    " I read this book in preparation for a mission trip, and it was a very good review of the church's responsibilities. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 12/13/2011

    " For me, this book was helpful in providing focus and reminding me of the core of where to focus my energy and conversations. It lead to a positive discussion on balancing varied opinions in doctrine but not compromising on the essential. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyle Oliphint | 10/23/2011

    " Excellent!! A carefully exegetical and irenic treatment of the mission of the church. Ordering copies for all of our elders. "
