Book Description

August 2, 2012
Meet James, who is struggling to relate the Bible to his dull, difficult life.
Or Kate, who is trying hard as a Christian, yet is deeply disappointed with God.
Or Susie, who dutifully shows up at church each Sunday, but feels alone and out of it.
Or Andrew, whose courage fails him every time he tries to share the gospel with his workmates - leaving him feeling guilty and a failure.

How can ordinary Christians live the truly extraordinary life that God calls us to? By focusing our attention on the grace of God shown to us in the gospel, everyday problems and experiences like these, familiar to Christians everywhere, can be transformed as the cross of Christ becomes the motive and measure of everything we do.

Sympathetic to our struggles... clear and concise... rooted in the Bible... relevant to our everyday experience... The Gospel-Centred Life shows how every Christian can follow the way of the cross as they embrace the liberating grace of God in Christ.

Use this workbook to help you, your small group or your whole church grow into Christian maturity.

5.0 out of 5 stars How To Live For God's Glory November 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic concise guide written by two experienced church planters in England designed for individuals, one-on-one, or in small groups. This is one of four books in a series of guides on the themes of being gospel centered. All four of these guides (also on the Church, Marriage, and Family) are loaded with great topics, questions for discussion, and saturated with good theology and biblically based. The best thing about this guide is that it is short, without sacrificing depth - for people who don't have a lot of time, or simply don't like to read. It gets you straight and to the point of discussion quickly - designed for action.

This book has 14 short chapters that each contain these elements: 1) A Principle based on the biblical topic being discussed; 2) Consider this - a short case study on the topic at hand; 3) a biblical background reading on the subject of the case study; 4) Read all about it - a brief discussion on the topic tying in the context, bridging the biblical passage, and it's relevancy to the topic; and 5) Questions for reflection and discussion.

Here are the Principles and Key Biblical Passages Developed in the Three Sections of this book:

Part One: Gospel-Centered Change

Chapter 1: "A Life for God" - Principle: "It's not about me--it's about God and His glory." The Biblical background for this chapter comes from 1 Corinthians 8:1-11:1.

Chapter 2: "A Life for others" - Principle: "It's not about me--it's about loving God and others." The Biblical background for this chapter comes from Matthew 22:34-40.

Chapter 3: "A Life of change" - Principle: "God is making me more like Jesus for His glory and my good." The Biblical background for this chapter comes from Hebrews 12:1-11.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for Church Planting and Disciple Making November 10, 2011
Format:Paperback
I'm a church planter and this blog is published to help my core group and missional community grow in their understanding and living of the Christian life on mission through missional training.

One of the resources that I'm using is Steve Timmis & Tim Chester's The Gospel-Centred Life: becoming the person God wants you to be. This material was created to help "Ordinary Christians live the truly extraordinary life that God calls us to." It continually teaches and demonstrates, through scriptures and stories, how the Gospel message changes everything. It will help reshape your identity, how you spend your time and money, how you prioritize your life, how you deal with heartache and how you witness to others in everyday non-threatening ways.

This booklet could be used as a small group study. Yet we are using it more for a weekly devotion for each of our leaders. Our Core group meets every Tuesday. I ask them to read each chapter on their own every Wednesday and come back to it once or twice a week. I want my core group to not only read the content but to live it and incorporate it into their lives. Then at the next meeting we discuss the content and how we've put it into action or how it's changed us. This material has been a helpful tool to slowly shift our perspectives and priorities. Its helped us to understand the Gospel more and to understand how to live with greater Gospel intentionality.
