Unstoppable Gospel: A Book Review

About The Book:

The apostles boldly proclaimed the gospel, every day and at great risk. Today the church wants to avoid risk, avoid stepping on toes, and avoid any bad publicity that might come with going out on a limb. But giant leaps forward in God's kingdom don't come without a big vision and a great big dose of risk.

In Unstoppable Gospel, pastor Gregg Matte calls us to take up the mission of the early church and go change the world. He shows how using ordinary, everyday people to spread the Word like an unquenchable fire has been God's plan from the beginning. He shares practical ways you can take advantage of the countless opportunities you have to make lasting kingdom impact in our world

My Review:

Unstoppable Gospel was a delightful read that walked me through the book of Acts and how to live as a loving, not judging, follower of Christ. In today's moder day Christianity sometimes it is truly hard to live out the love that Christ wants us to. He want's us to be like Him and through strong scripture references and explanation of these scriptures, along with personal stories and ancedotes, the author grabs your attention from the very beginnning and holds your attention to the very end of the book. It was was well organized, and easy to read but gave me a lot of things to think about. I made a lot of notes and will be going back through the notes and highlights for deeper study. Living out the book of Acts in today's modern world is not always easy but always necessary and Gregg Matte's book is a great resource as we journey for His will to love on others well.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
