My friend Mike Horton (J.Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics at Westminster Seminary California) has written a follow-up book to his excellent Christless Christianity. It is entitled The Gospel-Driven Life: Being Good News People in a Bad News World and will be hitting the shelves in October. His publisher offers this synopsis:

In his well-received Christless Christianity Michael Horton offered a prophetic wake-up call for a self-centered American church. With The Gospel-Driven Life he turns from the crisis to the solutions, offering his recommendations for a new reformation in the faith, practice, and witness of contemporary Christianity. This insightful book will guide readers in reorienting their faith and the church’s purpose toward the good news of the gospel. The first six chapters explore that breaking news from heaven, while the rest of the book focuses on the kind of community that the gospel generates and the surprising ways in which God is at work in the world. Here is fresh news for Christians who are burned out on hype and are looking for hope.

Mike is always thoughtful, provocative, and very hepful. I look forward to reading The Gospel-Driven Life.
