About this book...
The word “gospel” is becoming a cliché, an overused buzzword flowing from the lips of pastors, teachers, and laymen alike. Everything from softball teams to wild game dinners are declared to be “gospel-centered” and sermonizers tend to overuse and misuse the term ad nauseam in sermons and conversations.
The transforming power of the gospel is being lost in the our vocabulary. It is becoming a lost term in a sea of christianese. Jerry Bridges
’ book, The Transforming Power of the Gospel
is an essential read for our small group leaders. Not just so that the term can be restored to its original meaning and intensity, also so that small group leaders understand the power that the gospel has on a life, even their own.
When a small group leader reads this book they will be guided through an examination of…
· What the biblical meaning of grace is and how it applies to your life.
· How Jesus’ work in His life and death applies to the believer in justification and adoption.
· Why basic spiritual disciplines are necessary for spiritual growth.
· What role the Holy Spirit plays in both definitive and progressive sanctification.
While the list above makes The Transforming Power of the Gospel
sound as though it is too deep for the average small group leader, nothing could be further from true. This short 181 page book is an easy read for almost any small group leader.
This is an essential read for any small group leader who wants to see the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ transform the lives of those who are in their small group.
