"Churches called into existence by the gospel should also be shaped by the gospel in their everyday life."
- Don Carson and Tim Keller
This is part of the five-track Gospel Shaped Church curriculum developed with The Gospel Coalition from its ministry distinctives expressed in it's foundational documents. The full range is:
• Gospel Shaped Worship
• Gospel Shaped Outreach
• Gospel Shaped Living
• Gospel Shaped Work
• Gospel Shaped Mercy
"The Gospel Coalition believes in the priority of the local church, and that the local church is the best place to discuss these five ministry drivers and decide how to integrate them into life and mission. So, while being clear on the biblical principles, these resources give space to consider what a genuine expression of a gospel-shaped church looks like for you in the place God has put you, and with the people he has gathered into fellowship with you."
- Don Carson and Tim Keller
Endorsement written for Gospel Shaped Mercy - SD episodes
We live in a world that regularly groans under the weight of division and injustice. Here is a unique opportunity to be deeply equipped to answer these groans through a gospel shaped doing of justice and mercy.
Gospel Shaped Mercy meets that often neglected, sometimes even maligned, aspect of ministry within contemporary evangelicalism. The material is of the highest quality, both in terms of content as well as presentation. Probably the most helpful aspect though, is how integrated the course is; including DVD teaching, material for personal devotions, group Bible study, individual journaling as well as outlines for an accompanying sermon series. If you are looking for a course to help you and your church discern what the LORD might be calling you to do then look no further, here it is!
We are now into the study of Micah and 3 studies into this study booklet in our small home group.
All of our group are enjoying this study and the two leaders find the guide helpful. We follow the outline and questions and have had really good discussion times as a result.
Thought provoking and challenging but very easy to follow and understand
I was looking for something to encourage me to look at some Old Testament writings within a small group setting. The Good Book Company have resources that I have used with children so I had a look at some of their other material. There was plenty to choose from and I picked a few of the OT prophetic writings to see if anything could be useful to our group. I'm happy with the content and layout as you have to read the passage then answer some questions and apply it to a modern context. I'll probably suggest these for use in the group but I'll also use them for my own personal study.
I offered this up to my ladies study group, I personally enjoyed the deeper method of study, but have studied scripture academically. Most of my group found it difficult to grasp and I had to stop. I'm hoping that in the future they will try again. I shall continue alone for the time being as I found it fascinating. We need to try the meat sometimes and move on from spoon feeding.
excellent book for the study of Macah
