Keeping the Main Thing

Timothy C. Tennent

About the Book

Never-changing gospel. Ever-changing world. What gives? On the one hand, the gospel message does not change. Jesus Christ was crucified on a cross and raised from  the dead to deliver condemned sinners like you and me. That basic message does not change. On the other hand, entering many churches today feels more like walking into a Starbucks or Panera Bread than entering a sanctuary of worship. And the truth? This is not a problem, until it is.

Through this series of incisive scriptural reflections Timothy Tennent helps readers discern the challenges of living out an uncompromising gospel in an increasingly compromised culture.
