Hi everyone! Hope you are all having a great year so far. I wanted to pass along some information about a new ebook addition to the website. I guess the book has actually been out for a couple of years, but I just recently have been chatting with the author and I was really encouraged by his heart to share freely what he feels the Lord has put on his heart. I’ve almost finished reading the book at the time of writing this post and it is very good. Below is a short synopsis of the content.
Corinthian Elders by Jack Fortenberry. We are to be disciples of Christ but not of Christian leaders. Corinthian Elders addresses the Pauline concern that following leaders will harm our relationship with Christ. The book concludes that following teachers hindered the Corinthians from abiding in Christ and this is corroborated by passages in Colossians where Paul was alarmed when believers were following authoritative leaders.
The author, Jack, was gracious to share this PDF version of the book freely and readers can also purchase a hard copy from Amazon.com. This brother’s heart is in the message, not the money, and for this reason I am happy to encourage those who have been blessed by this book to bless the author in return with your prayers, encouraging feedback, and even financially if the Lord inspires you (such as through purchasing the book from Amazon.com). God bless!
