Disciples are made as the story is told then retold as we are gathered, shared when scattered, and lived out in homes
For many years the Church has been conversing about what discipleship should look like. These conversations only buttress the truth that proper discipleship strikes at the heart of the Christian faith. Without proper discipleship, our faith is deformed. It turns into a circus, social club, dead “orthodoxy,” or worse. In my estimation, the church has overcomplicated matters. We must return to the ancient, tested, and biblical forms and...

The gospel must transform in big ways the way we cultivate our world. Go, therefore, and create!
I recently returned from The Gospel Coalition Conference in Orlando, FL. I enjoyed hearing the preaching and fellowshipping with friends old and new. One of my favorite events was the Christ and Pop Culture panel with Alan Noble, Richard Clark, Mike Cosper, and Derek Rishmawy. This panel discussion started a conversation on the ride home with my travel companion and good friend Chad McKinnon. We talked a lot about engaging with culture ...

“I wonder what we Christians are known for in the world outside our churches. Are we known as critics, consumers, copiers, condemners of culture? I’m afraid so. Why aren’t we known as cultivators—people who tend and nourish what is best in human culture, who do the hard and painstaking work to preserve the best of what people before us have done? Why aren’t we known as creators—people who dare to think and do something that has never been thought or done before, something that makes the world more welcoming and thrilling and beautiful?”—Andy Crouch

Do not be afraid to step into conflict with them and yourself. Hit publish when you have broken them.

God does not keep his Church gathered, but scatters her among the nations as a light in the darkness

Storytelling is foundational to our faith. In the OT God rescues Israel from Egypt and in the NT Jesus from our sin

How should we posture ourselves to culture? How do we know when it is forbidden? And when should we just enjoy it?

Introduction
Mission

Grace for Sinners exists to make much of God through the power of the Holy Spirit by heralding the reign of King Jesus for the glory of the Father and the joy of all peoples.

What Can You Expect?

We offer bi-weekly articles mainly through the lens of biblical theology as the unfolding story of the gospel in the person and work of Jesus Christ intersecting the gospel with everyday life. On the weekends, the review staff (below) recommends books on a variety of subjects in hopes of saving you time and money by pointing you to the best resources available.

Meet the Review Staff

We have fun talking books, theology, and poking fun at our differences. Having a team allows us to highlight a variety of books, while still outputting high quality reviews.

Mathew B. Sims is the author of A Household Gospel: Fulfilling the Great Commission in Our Homes and a contributor in Make, Mature, Multiply (GCD Books). He completed over forty hours of seminary work at Geneva Reformed Seminary. He also works as the managing editor at Gospel-Centered Discipleship and the assistant editor at CBMW Manual. He regularly writes for a variety of publications. Mathew offers freelance editing and book formatting.

He’s married to LeAnn Sims who blogs at The Modest Homestead and is a creative force in design and event planning. They have three daughters—Claire, Maddy, and Adele—who are joyful, mischievous, and full of wonder (he’s outnumbered if you’re counting). They enjoy having fun—romping in the woods, swimming, singing, reading, and traveling. When the rabble-rousers are asleep, he enjoys watching a good movie with his wife. He loves reading, the outdoors, and cooking good food. He hydrates daily with coffee. And he’s a prodigal Apple geek.

Joshua Torrey is a New Mexico boy in an Austin, TX world. He is husband to Alaina and father to Kenzie & Judah and spends his free time studying for the edification of his household. These studies include the intricacies of hockey, football, curling, beer, and theology. You can follow him @AustinPreterism and read his theological musings and running commentary of the Scriptures at The Torrey Gazette.

Jennifer Guo counts beans by day and eats books by night. She is passionate about the gospel and loves biblical and theological studies. She also loves the arts and is part of a performing arts ministry that uses a variety of mediums to communicate the gospel, God’s heart, and His design for sexuality, relationships, and marriage. Jennifer also loves running and cooking (and not because running allows her to eat more). You can follow her @JenniferGuo and read more of her thoughts at Jennifer Guo.
