Jonathan Dodson, pastor of Austin City Life, is one of many bright young pastors today seeking to apply a gospel-centric worldview to all aspects of church, community, culture, and mission. His new book, Gospel-centered Discipleship (with a foreword by Matt Chandler), has now been published by Crossway in the ReLit line. As Jeff Vanderstelt says, “He goes beyond just answering the question: ‘What is gospel-centered?’ to help us see how the gospel of grace really works in the details of everyday life. His clarification of the unhealthy divide between evangelism and discipleship will bring about a more holistic approach to gospel-centered discipleship.”
You can read chapter 5, “Gospel Power: The Essential Role of the Holy Spirit,” online for free (also embedded at the end of this post). This is a great book for group study, and toward that end Jonathan has provided some free discussion questions as well.
A few weeks ago we sat down for a conversation about the book, which you can watch below:
