What is the Mission of the Church?: Making sense of social justice, Shalom and the Great Commission (2011)
3.94 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Really good discussion about the actual mission of the church. An irenic correction to some of the trends among some to classify "opportunities" the church has to do good things as "obligations" and the stated "mission" of the church. Places the right emphasis on preaching the go...
The Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness (2012)
4.3 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This book should be required reading for every young adult. DeYoung has a message to share that, I hope, is a wake up call to Christians. God is holy and expects us to be holy. With no hint of legalism or superiority, he thoughtfully shares a balanced view of law and grace. In a...
Just Do Something: A Liberating Approach to Finding God's Will (2009)
4.21 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This is the second book I have read written by Pastor DeYoung. The writing style between the two seem very consistent. I'm not sure if his books are short books or long pamphlets but this is another fairly quick read. His style and syntax are very easy to read, not a book for tho...
Crazy Busy: A (Mercifully) Short Book about a (Really) Big Problem (2013)
4.06 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Kevin DeYoung does a good job of addressing the issue of busyness in American culture. This is not a book about better planning or even about doing less (being busy isn't inherently a bad thing!) but rather a sober examination of the busy mindset we can get caught up in. It discu...
Why We Love the Church: In Praise of Institutions and Organized Religion (2009)
4.06 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: This book is a candid, balanced, biblically thoughtful, historically informed, & pastorally sensitive corrective to the new & radical Christianity that says "NO!" to traditional church.It's trendy these days for Christians to claim to love Jesus & want community with other believ...
The Good News We Almost Forgot: Rediscovering the Gospel in a 16th Century Catechism (2010)
4.19 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: A concentrated dose of Reformed theology lively presented. Kevin DeYoung explains the fundamentals of the Christian faith by systematically elaborating on the Heidelberg Catechism, originally published in 1563. It truly is better than it sounds! The catechism--which will be ne...
Taking God at His Word: Why the Bible Is Knowable, Necessary, and Enough, and What That Means for You and Me (2014)
4.27 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I attended the book release conference for this book, so when I picked it up after the conference I didn't expect to be as moved as I was (DeYoung was powerful at the conference, but I didn't think much would be left in the proverbial sponge). I was wrong. This book moved me powe...
Por que amamos a igreja (2010)
4.06 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: From a generation with so much discontent with the church, this book stands to affirm the legitimacy of the church through solid biblical studies. A great read for anyone who maybe disillusioned with their church and a guide for all to refocus on how God works through His church....
