Here's what's inside. 

 

The middle ages and Reformation began a conversation about truth, beauty, and goodness. Modernity and postmodernism tragically interrupted that conversation, and modern Evangelicalism has often simply echoed the hollowness of our modern culture. But we can do better.

The modern view of the world is empty and lifeless, nothing more than a bunch of matter in motion, with life by the thousandth chance emerging from chaos. The modern world, as a result, can only conceive of progress as more efficiency, more technology, more domination.

In stark contrast to this, Christianity presents a glorious vision for culture, and the vision of a world with truth, beauty, and goodness built into the very molecules of the universe.

Medieval and Protestant Christianity began a conversation about truth, beauty, and goodness, but secularism ended the conversation mid-sentence. Sadly many Christians, while continuing to believe in the Gospel have become just as blind to the beauty of the universe and the need for a culture in which that beauty is recognized and cultivated.

This book sketches a vision of Medieval Protestantism, covering such diverse topics as creeds, poetry, history, the church, feasting, and storytelling as they are to be found in the Christian faith alone.

 

Christians think that making fun of people is never okay. If so, then why did Jesus and the prophets do so much of it?

Satire is a kind of preaching. Satire pervades Scripture. Satire treats the foibles of sinners with a less than perfect tenderness. But if a Christian employs satire today, he is almost immediately called to account for his "insensitive" and "unloving" behavior. But is the Golden Rule really "be nice"? Actually, Scripture shows that the central point of some religious controversies is to give offense. When Christ was confronted with ecclesiastical obstinacy and other forms of arrogance, He showed us a godly pattern for giving offense.

In every controversy godliness and wisdom (or the lack of them) are to be determined by careful appeal to the Scriptures and not the fact of people having taken offense. In this book, veteran satirist Douglas Wilson explains his rationale for why so much of what he says gets people upset and yet he continues to speak as he does, and why you should (sometimes) too for the sake of the Gospel.

"When Nehemiah was leading the Jews in their project of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, the enemies of Israel mocked them and said, “It is reported among the heathen, and Gashmu saith it, that thou and the Jews think to rebel: for which cause thou buildest the wall, that thou mayest be their king, according to these words” (Neh. 6:6).

Today we see a culture that is increasingly hostile to Christians, and Christians are increasingly aware that they need to form strong communities to do for them what the culture no longer can. This is a good  thing, but it will only work if like Nehemiah and his men we are committed to resisting the dictates of our culture. If we are at all afraid of looking like the crazy fundamentalists that our culture loves to hate, then our communities will be as easily led by the culture as anybody else.

In this short book, Pastor Douglas Wilson describes some of the most important ways to create and maintain counter-cultural Christian communities. Whether he is talking about the need for kids to get calluses or for love and loyalty within churches, Douglas Wilson brings decades of on-the-ground wisdom and experience to the topic.

A city without walls is not really a city; neither is a city without a church at the center. Get busy. Build the walls, fight sin, love your family and church, and live out the Gospel."

 


A Primer on Worship and Reformation

You Say You Want a Reformation?

Look Inside the Book or Listen on Canon+

It is no secret that our world desperately needs change. Politicians know this and use it to collect votes. Journalists exploit it to sell newspapers and magazines. Advertisers, to sell everything else. Each of these groups (and countless others) spend their lives working to convince others that they hold the key to a better country, a better life, a better future.

But what exactly is this change we all long for? And how can it ever come about? A Primer on Worship and Reformation proposes that true change begins, not with a process or an idea, but through faithful worship. To witness true global change—true reformation—we must first pray the Lord that we would see worship at the center of life. The truth is that when the Word is faithfully preached, even the gates of hell tremble. When the Psalms are sung, the meek inherit the earth. When the church celebrates at the Lord's Table, those who mourn are comforted.

If we learn these lessons and believe them to be true, we will find that through renewed worship God brings change to every facet of our lives.

Valuable and Timely Book

Biblical and practical. As a pastor, I've used this book already - it gives actionable wisdom that we used to keep two emotional church members from sabotaging a thriving ministry. If you are a Church leader, you need this book.

Solid encouragement for leaders to be sober minded

I especially enjoyed the last half and his engagement with Paul in Gal 2 and Acts. I’d love to be more of the sober-minded leader (or the differentiated leader) that Rigney describes.

On a slightly related, on the printed page, his criticisms of empathy and winsomeness are far more nuanced, balanced, and sensible than the Twitter soundbites seem to suggest.

Good work by the author and publisher

This is a solid job done by both the author and the publisher. Four stars are given because the book is not as lengthy as I thought it would be.

Hello Ninja (w/ slight imperfections)

Very helpful.

I'm very grateful Pastor Joe wrote this book. I'll use it as resource for helping our church grow in decisiveness and moving forward. Thank you all.

It's surprisingly good

A very practical read that surprised me. Most of these kinds of books either lack substance, or they lack practicality. This book manages to have both, in a very slim package.

Helpful is an understatement

Bro. Jim’s perspective and biblical approach to evangelism is exactly what I needed to get excited about sharing the Gospel, and not nervous to share it. Please get this book, everyone.

This is a songbook full of bangers. Zero Skips. Well done.

A surprisingly biblical vision for the future of Christs Kingdom

After reading this book and coming back to some of its chapters over the last few months, it has shown itself not only to be very relevant for our times, but also casts a bright vision for the future of what Chris is going to accomplish in the world. I personally am exhausted with the Christianity being promoted today that teaches us to sit down and be silent to essentially expect the great commission to fail. Reading this book was very life-giving and for the first time in my Christian life, I feel like there is a point in pursuing gospel expansion. For me personally, a “we lose” down here mentality has been very debilitating. Even though I may not see Christianity win again in my lifetime, I look forward to planting the seeds for the day when Christendom will take the world by storm again. Christ is King!

As I delve more into the Old Testament, this book was very insightful and helpful. James B. Jordan helps open my mind to the text. Great book.

Fabulous

I can't get enough of James B. Jordan. This book has helped transform my understanding of creation.
