Tomorrow sees the next in our series of national consultations on helping the church gain Confidence in the Gospel. NT Wright (who was in the middle of editing his new book on Paul) was kind enough to make time to speak to us to give his views on the subject "What is the Gospel?" watch this short film and let me know what you think? How does Tom's approach challenge your own? Is there an emphasis you think he missed out? [vimeo link="http://vimeo.com/54601664" width="590" height="332"] There are some helpful resources…

I am surprised that more people haven't seen this cute little video about discipleship. It's only 2 minutes long but manages to raise some good challenges to the church about what the point of church is. There's lots to like about it. - The emphasis on church as a disciplemaking community - The emphasis on equipping for ministry - The emphasis on interpersonal discipleship rather simply rotas and programmes - The emphasis on whole life discipleship - in work, arts and business But have a little watch and see if…

If we are going to see the gospel of Jesus make the impact in the lives of Christians and in the cultures we live in – effective discipleship is the decisive task of the church.   Discipleship is the core calling of all Christians yet many would argue that is our failure to do this basic task that has meant that we have lost confidence to share our faith; struggled to find energy or motivation to transform our communities; inadequately challenge issues of global poverty and injustice. Sadly lack of…

Being Christlike has got to be the top priority for any Christian. Our latest book aims to help you do that by reflecting on the person on Jesus and the ways he calls us to be like him, speak like him and act like him in the power of his Holy Spirit. I spent a week teaching about this with Jude Trenier from Ireland, at the recent Spring Harvest event and each day we gave 10 practical ways to put this all into practice. So I thought I would post…

  I really like LOGOS Bible software. As someone who is on the road a lot - being able to carry hundreds of Bible commentaries with me is very useful as a lot of my prep work gets done on trains, in coffee shops and airports. I love the fact that I can use most of the resources really effectively on my smartphone (ok I used to use my Ipad a lot for it - but that's another story). So I was really excited that LOGOS have created another set…

Our family have just come back from an excellent time at Spring Harvest. Here are the 5 highlights for me of the event. 1. Confidence in the Gospel The theme of the event this year was "The Source: encountering Jesus Today" at the heart of this was a need for us to recover Jesus at the centre of our identity (BE) our words (SAY) and our actions (DO). It was great to be at an event that made sure evangelism was at the centre of the churches mission alongside doing…

I loved my iPad. It was barely out of my reach for the two years since they first came out. I was an early adopter and was completely won over by the portability, interactivity of the tablet experience. I used my Ipad mainly for email, diary, web surfing and lots of fun with the children playing games together. I wrote a chunk of one of our books on it on frequent train journeys into London. But something happened in November that means I have hardly used my Ipad recently My…
