The Reformers viewed the gospel as not one thing among the many in the life of a church but rather the means by which the Church exists. When the gospel is rightly declared and applied to God's people, the Church becomes 'a Creature of the Word'. She understands, embraces, and lives out the reality of Christ's birth, life, death and resurrection in more than her doctrinal statement.
Creature of the Word lays out this concept - examining the rich, Scripture-based beauty of a Jesus-centered church, then providing practical steps toward forming a Jesus-centered church.

'A foundational, practical, and helpful book for both Christians and church leaders.' - Mark Driscoll, pastor, Mars Hill Church
'Creature of the Word will make you rethink much of what you think you know about the Church, its message, and its mission. I welcome the conversations this book will spark.' - R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
