Customer Reviews For "Godspeed"Write Your Own Review
Godspeed: Making Christ's Mission Your Own is specifically directed at American Christians, but the principles apply in other Western countries. Merrick speaks about "Incarnational Christianity", which means that "we're called out of the world in worship to God while being sent into the world as witnesses of God". As with many of the best Christian non-fiction books, the author is giving their personal testimony, sharing what has impacted and changed their life. It is 'I found' rather than the lecturing 'you should' tone that some authors take. Godspeed is much more readable and teachable because of that underlying spirit of humility. Overall, this is a very readable book that might just challenge you to change your life. Thanks to David C Cook and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
