Today's church is continually being confronted with the question, "What is the gospel?" Bryan Loritts, a pastor in the heart of one of America's most racially divided urban centers, seizes the opportunity to answer that question in ways that may challenge your beliefs, practices and relationships.
Bryan clearly articulates the vertical dimension of the Christian faith as well as looking at the implications of salvation for growth, service, and relationships with the surrounding culture. He provokes readers to think about the implications of living out that faith. He explores what the gospel means for issues of race relations, political engagement, and class distinctions. A Cross-Shaped Gospel is a great look at how to biblically live out the whole gospel on earth by following the greatest heavenly commandments of loving God, and loving your neighbor.
