Rick Shrader‘s Review:
This book is written by a cross-section of Staff and Teachers from MacArthur’s ministries. It contains some needed rebuttal’s to things such as Warren’s Purpose-Driven Life; John Eldredge’s Wild At Heart; and a review of The Resolve New Testament. Other general chapters on discernment and ministry are helpful and challenging. MacArthur does the chapter on Contemporary Worship. I have a few disagreements with some of the chapters. I don’t think the public invitation was born in pragmatism nor is it outdated or unscriptural; I don’t think that the “Gospel Songs” [hymns] of the last two centuries were such a drastic step downward from great classical hymns.
