A Theology of Action: Owen Strachan on “Risky Gospel”

risky-gospel-209x300In his latest Marked Urgent post, “‘A Theology of Action: Owen Strachan on ‘Risky Gospel,'” Dr. Mohler commends the book, Risky Gospel.

Written by Dr. Mohler’s former research assistant, Owen Strachan, who currently serves as an assistant professor of theology at Boyce College and as Executive Director of the Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, this book confronts “mystical, fearful Christianity” head-on and explains that real, risky Christianity means having a heart and mind transformed by Scripture and a life of strategic deployment for the Kingdom of Christ. Dr. Mohler agrees with Strachan that gospel risk releases you “from the tyranny of small expectations” and “from the endless cycle of brand management.”
