Matt Chandler, pastor of Village Church in Dallas and the new president of the Acts29 Network, will be in the city Monday, April 16 to kick off a one-week, six-city tour promoting his new book, The Explicit Gospel.
From the book’s description:
Even if you go to church, it doesn’t mean that you are being exposed (or exposing others) to the gospel explicitly. Sure, most people talk about Jesus, and about being good and avoiding bad, but the gospel message simply isn’t there—at least not in its specificity and its fullness.
Inspired by the needs of both the overchurched and the unchurched, and bolstered by the common neglect of the explicit gospel within Christianity, popular pastor Matt Chandler writes this punchy treatise to remind us what is of first and utmost importance—the gospel.
Here is a call to true Christianity, to know the gospel explicitly, and to unite the church on the amazing grounds of the good news of Jesus!
The book’s trailer:
Tickets for the event cost $10 in advance and $15 at the door. You can purchase them here. Pre-release copies of the book will be available that night for $12. Matt will sign books beginning at 6.30pm, with the event beginning at 7.30pm. If you live in the city, I encourage you to attend this gathering.
You don’t have to live in NYC to be a part. The Explicit Gospel tour will make stops in Philadelphia; Durham, NC; Anderson, SC; Smyrna, GA; Orlando; and Austin. More details here.
