This review is from: Creature of the Word: The Jesus-Centered Church (Paperback)
As I was reading through Creature Of The Word it was greatly encouraging to see the breadth at which Chandler, Patterson, and Geiger covered this topic. The tone of speaking boldly, while doing it through the lens of gentleness, is an accomplishment that very few books seem to reach these days.
Here are a few quotes from Creature Of The Word that I hope will encourage you to pick up a copy.
1. Abhorring what is evil in the context of community requires true love--love that dares to inflict "the wounds of a friend" (Prov. 27:6 esv). The weakest, saddest, most hypocritical form of pseudo love is the kind that sees someone in danger and simply hopes everything works out in the end.
2. We become what we behold.
3. Not everything is the gospel, but the gospel is for everything.
Enjoy the wisdom that is expressed in this book!
