Irresistible

Irresistible
Reclaiming the New That Jesus Unleashed for the World
(Zondervan, 2018)

WHO: Andy Stanley, founder of North Point Ministries.

HE SAYS: “It’s the mixing, blending, and integration of the old with the new that make our faith indefensible in this misinformation age.”

THE BIG IDEA: Distortions of the gospel have given us an anemic version of Christianity. We need to rediscover what once made faith in Jesus irresistible.

THE PROGRESSION:
Section 1, “Simply Resistible,” summarizes and explains what the old covenant between God and his people was and how it came to an end. Part 2, “All Things New,” looks at the new movement Jesus unleashed in the world: the church. Part 3, “A New Ethic,” examines the new covenant between God and humankind. The book concludes with Part 4, “A New Approach,” which looks at the significance of Jesus’ command to love one another.

“There once existed a version of our faith that rested securely on a single unprecedented event—the resurrection.”
