A Call to Resurgence: Will Christianity Have a Fun&hellip by Mark Driscoll
In some ways this book is like a greatest hits collection, recapping many of Mark Driscoll's major ministry themes, the drums of which he has been banging for the past twenty years. In other ways it is a middle years reflection on where he and America are at in 2014 and the ways Mars Hill's ministries have intersected with culture inside and outside of the church.

Gospel Centred Preaching by Tim Chester
This 150 page book is split into five parts dealing with the goals, means, content, priorities, and process of preaching. It is set out as a workbook with passages of the Bible to study and follow-up questions to reflect on the content of each chapter. I read it this week to refocus my own preaching on the gospel. I have been preaching for over twenty years and this is one of the most refreshing books I have read in that time on the subject. Having the different voices and perspectives of Marcus Honeysett and Tim Chester kept this very fresh. I enjoyed it so much I bought a second copy to give to one of the guys in our church who is preaching for the first time in September. I'm… Read more
