A Different Kind of Purpose-Driven Church

Although the evangelical culture is largely dazzled by Rick Warren’s The Purpose Driven Church and The Purpose Driven Life, and although I have read the former and found some helpful things in it, I am glad that there are other books on the market that encourage a different kind of purpose-driven church, with deeper roots in Scripture. Coming soon is Mark Dever’s The Deliberate Church, published by Crossway. You can view the table of contents, preorder the book, and actually start reading here: http://www.gnpcb.org/product/1581347383 From my brief perusal so far, I am encouraged by this book in its biblical content, simple layout, and practicality. Thanks to Justin Taylor for bringing this book to my attention on his great blog “Between Two Worlds” (http://theologica.blogspot.com/)
