We have turned discipleship into marketing so we’ve rejected the early NT example of diverse body of Christ
Davis sets the goal high: “What I needed, and what is needed today, is a set of universal disciple-making principles by which to evaluate the cultural and theological assumptions that in turn precipitate the methods and patterns of behavior common in churches and among church leaders” (22) To do this he has crafted ten principles with sliding cultural values. They are: 1. Disciples Let God Lead from the Invisible World (Visibl...

It’s been our privilege to be white without having to think about what that really means
In late August, no small kerfuffle ensued because Black Lives Matter activists Shaun King was accused of lying about his ethnicity and co-opting blackness for personal gain. This situation along with Ekemini Uwan’s tweets (above) started me thinking. Why doesn’t our black family receive the privilege of being sinners without it discrediting an entire group of people? The accusations leveled against Shaun forced him to share painful f...

ICYMI 2 Principles for Living Free from J. R. R. Tolkien
Editor: In our Family History Series we are seeking to understand how Christians of the past have pursued making disciples. We want to connect the church’s current efforts to make, mature, and multiply disciples to its historical roots as well as encourage the church to learn from her rich past. …

If your sin discredited your faith tradition, family, or entire ethnic group, who among us could stand?

ICYMI check out this lullaby I wrote for daughter Maddy, “Princess in my arms”
When my second daughter was born, I held her in my arms and regular words just didn’t seem enough. I sang her lullabies and started playing with words. This lullaby can be sung to “Twinkle Little Star.”

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.
