Product Description

How does the church portray the beauty of Christ?

The gospel is a theological message. But this message also creates human beauty - beautiful relationships in our churches, making the glory of Christ visible in the world today.

In this timely book, Pastor Ray Ortlund makes the case that gospel doctrine creates a gospel culture. In too many of our churches, it is the beauty of a gospel culture that is the missing piece of the puzzle. But when the gospel is allowed to exert its full power, a church becomes radiant with the glory of Christ.

Author Bio

Endorsements

When Ray Ortlund speaks, I listen. My generation has grown in knowledge but needs sages. Pastor Ray is that to us. Pick up this resource and hear from a man who espouses theological depth matched by gospel grace.
-Eric M. Mason,
Lead Pastor, Epiphany Fellowship, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Churches don't make the gospel true, but when 'the sweetness of the Lord' is upon us, the church becomes a powerful testimony of God's grace. With both realism and hope, Ray Ortlund tells us how that grace can thrive among us - even as broken as we are - so that Christ's glory will radiate from us.
-Bryan Chapell,
President Emeritus, Covenant Theological Seminary

Ray Ortlund weaves together profound biblical reflection on how gospel doctrine must lead to gospel culture with choice quotations from great saints in church history. A must read for any church that wants to help rather than hinder the lost in being attracted to Christ.
-Craig L. Blomberg,
Denver Seminary

Compelling. Convicting. Encouraging. Probing. And most of all, entrancing. What a beautiful vision of what the church can be through the power of the gospel. How evident it is that the gospel has penetrated Ortlund's own heart. Read it. Pray through it. Ask God to use its message mightily in your church and in many other churches as well.
-Thomas R. Schreiner,
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Pastor-scholar Ray Ortlund, in his newest book, brings out the goodness in the good news. And a church that doesn't show this goodness in their life together, says he, undermines the very gospel they preach. It's a good argument, and worthwhile.
-Mark Dever,
Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington DC; President, 9Marks

In this incisive book, Ray Ortlund does the necessary and compelling work of connecting the life-giving gospel to the lived experience and witness of the church. His vision for gospel cultures that bloom in the rich soil of gospel doctrine will capture those who desire to see the world captivated by Christ.
-Stephen T. Um,
Citylife Presbyterian Church, Boston, Massachusetts
