"If we are going to be discerning people, we must develop the skill of discriminating between truth and error, good and bad."

He and his wife, Patricia, live in Southern California and have four grown children.
Nathan Busenitz (PhD, The Master's Seminary) is assistant professor of theology at the Master's Seminary. He previously served on the pastoral staff of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. He is the author of numerous books and a regular contributor to the blog Preacher & Preaching.
Top customer reviews
Written from a strong and supported Scriptural basis, this book examines even the format and focus of church worship, music and preaching - placing it at obvious odds with Warren-style mega-churches. But MacArthur is uncompromising in his allegiance to Scripture for his guiding principles, and does not simply follow the passing appetites of sinful man.
If you're tired of watered-down church ideas, read this and be guided back into God's Word. Read this and be strengthened and emboldened to stand firm against the tides of emotionalism, emergent doctrines and the host of "feel good" ideas driving much of our churches today.
I do wish that editors had seen fit to include a chapter devoted to an old error that is surfacing in the church today, that of "Christian" mysticism principally as espoused by the parachurch organization Renovare' and it's founder Richard Foster.
