5.0 out of 5 stars Living at GodSpeed 31 May 2012
By Stan Sinclair - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Britt Merrick's new book GodSpeed is a great call to see "mission" in a new and clear way - without an "s". Our identity is that we are "called to God sent by God for the glory of God to meet the needs of the world - with God". Britt writes with great clarity and transparency as to our purpose and identity and calling, and includes many personal illustrations revealing some great truths. Highly recommend!

4.0 out of 5 stars Godspeed 19 Sep 2012
By Brian Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
GODSPEED by Britt Merrick published by David C. Cook

The author begins the book by stating that what the church in America is missing is a right understanding of `mission'. He calls "living at Godspeed" is when we understand our mission, live as sent people of God and thus begin living the Jesus life to those around us.
He does a good job of establishing the biblical basis of us being a sent people, that we are called to join with Jesus on His mission. We are not bystanders but workers with God.
He says that, "Mission is the single reason why your life's purpose is different from most of the rest of the world." That for mission minded people the question is not `What should I do?' but `What is God doing?'
I feel that for many of us to be able to answer that question we must first wait in prayer until we can hear from God and then be able to see what He is doing.
The author also talks about the need to understand that the goal of the mission or the gospel is not to get people to come to our church service. We must understand that the church is `Gods express instrument for ministry and mission,' and if we realize our identity as the church, and begin to live out that identity that we would `shake the world'.
He makes this profound statement that would be deeply unsettling for many Christians, "Because you and I were sent into the world, it follows logic that our most meaningful and fruitful Christian experiences should take place outside the church building." Yet it seems that we spend so much of our resources and energy on the building.

The author gives these statistics: "of the 52 parables Jesus told, forty-five of them took place in the market context. Of the 132 public appearances Jesus made, 122 of them occurred in the marketplace....of the forty miracles recorded in the book of Acts, thirty-nine of them occurred in the marketplace."

The author also stated that the model for mission is the incarnation of Christ and that model must shape the way we live in the world. He says "When the church does incarnational Christianity instead of religion, mission becomes more practical."

This book provides the biblical material and challenge that should motivate us to begin moving out of our buildings and into the streets. It will help us realize that we are on mission with God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something about Britt. 11 Dec 2012
By Adam Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I often struggle with many pastors in finding them believable. Britt makes we want to not only be a better man, husband, and father, but has inspired me to long for a deeper more sincere relationship with Jesus.
