I predict that his recent book, Revangelical: Becoming the Good News People We’re Meant To Be, has the potential to set the Evangelical world right-side up. A glance at the back cover will give an indication as to why this is so.
From the Back Cover
When you hear the word evangelical, do you think “good news”? That’s what the word means, and it’s what we’re meant to be. Yet too often, it’s not how others see us. Do you ever say you’re an evangelical Christian and see others immediately grow defensive? Do they assume you’re judgmental or angry; do they make assumptions about your beliefs, your intelligence, or your politics?
When people look at us, do they see the Jesus we claim to love?
Lance Ford has learned firsthand the critical importance of rediscovering what it means to live the Good News. In this groundbreaking book, he calls us as Christians to be re-evangelized–to realign our hearts with the things that most concerned Jesus. To transcend the culture wars and get back to the gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven. To joyfully live the gospel in such a way that the surrounding culture will have no choice but to recognize us as Good News people.
In Revangelical, Ford offers inspiring glimpses of a life-changing, church-stirring movement and shares hope-filled stories of evangelicals who are living out the Good News. The revangelicals are changing the world. Are you ready to join them?
Order the Book
Every serious minded follower of Jesus Christ needs to order this book immediately. Once it arrives, you need to lay whatever else you are reading aside and thoroughly digest its contents. Then, after you have read it, read it again. After reading it a second time, read it a third time. Lance Ford absolutely nails it when he describes what living in the Kingdom of God looks like in our current day. If I had the means to do so, I would immediately buy a copy for everyone in the congregation I serve. This book is really that good. Lance Ford paints a vivid portrait of what life looks like when we are truly living in the Reign.
