From the Back Cover

Whose kingdom are we building? God's? Or our own?

Many churches in America today 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. Yet what we need most is a renewed understanding of and commitment to the Great Commission.
At a time when churches are zealously engaged in creating mission statements and strategic plans, Michael Horton argues that we must ask ourselves anew whether we are ambassadors following the script we've been given, or building our own kingdoms with our own blueprint.
Pastors and church leaders will value this frank and hopeful next-step exploration of the Great Commission as a call to renewed understanding and good practice.
"The best book I've ever read on the Great Commission. Mike demonstrates that no matter how hard we try or how 'radical' we get, any engine smaller than the gospel that we depend on for power to do what God has called us to do--most importantly, the Great Commission--will conk out."--Tullian Tchividjian, senior pastor, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church; author, Surprised by Grace: God's Relentless Pursuit of Rebels

"Horton calls us to recover a biblical understanding of mission and restore its centrality in the life of the church. The Gospel Commission is filled with both penetrating analysis and pastoral guidance, and I recommend it enthusiastically."--Doug Birdsall, chair, Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization

5.0 out of 5 stars the best book I've read in many years 3 Sept. 2014
By Jim Groff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book clearly and succinctly discusses the various "extra-biblical" belief systems that claim to be Christian, and does so with an honest approach using scripture and orthodoxy as its sole authority. Every pastor, Christian worker, and layperson remotely interested in knowing what the problems might be with current doctrinal views should read this book. It is not only a good book to read, but I will be referring to it often as I discuss doctrinal issues with my fellow believers, many of whom are so uninformed, or ill informed, about the current unorthodox teachings and movements in post-modern churches.
5.0 out of 5 stars Every book he writes becomes my favorite book, when I'm able to read it 21 Mar. 2015
By Janette Baradell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Michael Horton never disappoints! His clear thinking and writing always cuts through the nonsense that forms the "winds and trends" of Christianity, but he always does so in a level, kind, and compassionate voice, with subtle wit. Every book he writes becomes my favorite book, when I'm able to read it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend. 6 Sept. 2014
By JH - Published on Amazon.com

Horton gives a good synopsis of what Christians in general are missing as it pertains to the great commission. He gives a balanced view between evangelicals as well as the emergent church.
