WARNING! This book could make your life messy!


Today's church is continually being confronted with the question, "What is the gospel?" Many churches answer this through strong exposition of biblical truth. Others answer with a focus on community engagement. But doesn't Christ call us to do both?


The covenant of salvation demands a radical re-patterning of relationships. Bryan Lorrits, a pastor in the heart of one of America's historically racially divided urban centers, seizes the opportunity to engage God, the church, and culture in ways that may challenge your beliefs, practices, and relationships.


A Cross-Shaped Gospel clearly articulates the vertical dimension of the Christian faith, as well as looking at the horizontal implications of salvation for growth, service, and community. It provokes readers to think about the implications of living out their faith. What does the gospel mean for issues of:

Political engagement? Class distinctions? Race Relations?
It is only by reaching upward that we can reach outward in power and with the proper motives, so let A Cross- Shaped Gospel help you in crafting and communicating a biblical philosophy of engaging God and others well!
