Product Description

The Christian church world-wide is growing significantly in size and influence. However, John Stott has commented that the greatest problem it faces is "growth without maturity." Expansion can be accompanied by lack of depth. Teaching and discipleship are still needed, perhaps as never before. Josh Moody's conviction is that the American minister and theologian Jonathan Edwards (1703-58) provides us with a model for Christian faithfulness in today's world. Edwards is still regarded by many as America's most profound theological and philosophical thinker. With freshness and accessibility, Josh Moody introduces us to Edwards' life, ministry and writings, engages with him on a range of important subjects, and demonstrates his continuing relevance through helpful and challenging applications for contemporary Christians and churches.

Publisher's Description

Are we looking mostly to please God or ourselves? The myth of Narcissus describes a young man who dies because he falls in love with his own reflection. When surrounded by the Narcissistic messages of contemporary societyyouve got to believe in yourself we need to listen to a Bible teacher from a past age who can drag us back to reflecting less on ourselves and more on God. Jonathan Edwards, perhaps the greatest of all American Bible teachers, was so God-centered. In The God-Centered Life, Dr. Josh Moody calls us to listen to Edwards in order that we might stop living for ourselves and start living the God-centered life. How to do church, teach the Bible, have a healthy family, deal with failure, engage postmodernism, assess spiritual experiences and more are envisioned through the eyes of Jonathan Edwards with freshness and accessibility.
