The Gospel Commission The Gospel Commission

Recovering God's Strategy for Making Disciples

by Horton, Michael

It is a penetrating question but one that begs an honest answer: “Are we really fulfilling Jesus's final command?” To digress, in America many churches want to be “powerful, relevant, and influential in personal and social transformation”. A plethora of programs for outreach, discipleship, and spiritual disciplines are available at any bookstore and on countless websites. But is there an understanding of and commitment to the Great Commission? Many assume they already know the nature of this commission and the appropriate methods of carrying it out. A prolific, award-winning author and theologian and professor, Michael Horton contends that it too often becomes our mission instead of God's. At a time when churches are zealously engaged in creating mission statements and strategic plans, he argues that Christians must ask themselves anew whether they are ambassadors, following the script they have been given, or are building their own kingdoms based on their own blueprint. Pastors, elders and church members will value this frank and hopeful next-step exploration of the Great Commission as a call to renewed understanding and good practice. The author hosts the widely-known The White Horse Inn radio broadcasts and is editor-in-chief of Modern Reformation magazine.
