Work in Progress (I need your help)
On vanguardchurch.com, my resource page, I am working out a new presentation of the Gospel. I want it to focus on the image of God in humanity, and how Christ, as the perfect image of God, redeems us to our original design and purpose.
It’s meant to be a kind of “emerging 4 spiritual laws,” only this is presented in 8 stages of the redemption story.
The people who have inspired me toward this project are: NT Wright (in his Creation and New Creation in the New Testament Lectures), Michael Wittmer (in his book, Heaven is a Place on Earth), Scot McKnight (in his blog entries and new book, Jesus Creed), Brian McLaren (in his book, The Story We Find Ourselves In, where he tells another stage-by-stage story of redemption), Dallas Willard (in his book, Reformation of the Heart) and, mostly, my own biblical study of what I feel is the key storyline of the Bible.
But I need your help: TEAR THIS APART! I’m looking for constructive criticism as this is written…kind of an emerging community project.
Won’t you help?
