Below is conversation with Sojourn Church’s Daniel Montgomery and Mike Cosper about their new book, Faithmapping: A Gospel Atlas for Your Spiritual Journey (Crossway, 2013).
Most of us emphasize one aspect of Christianity over another. Competing voices tell us that the Christian life is all about this or that: missions, discipleship, worship, the cross, or the kingdom. It’s as if we are navigating the Christian life with fragments of a map—bits and pieces of the good news—rather than the whole picture. If we put those map fragments together, we discover a beautiful, coherent picture. Faithmapping invites Christians to see that map, exploring a whole gospel that forms a whole church who carries that glorious news to the whole world.
You can read an excerpt from the introduction and chapter 4 here, or below:
“Daniel Montgomery and Mike Cosper are wise guides for the journey. In Faithmapping they set out a pattern for personal discipleship and the life of the faithful Christian in the local church. I welcome this book.”
—R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“These days, it seems like ‘gospel-centered’ books are a dime a dozen. Yet, Faithmapping isn’t anything if it’s not unique. The missional focus of this contribution to the gospel-centered movement is a breath of fresh air. Well done.”
—Ed Stetzer, President, LifeWay Research; contributing editor, Christianity Today
“After knowing Daniel and Mike for years, I can affirm that these men live the words of this book. I highly recommend it for those who are new to Christianity or mature in their faith. The title says it all! It is a trusted navigator for those who desire for Christ to be all.”
—Darrin Patrick, Lead Pastor, The Journey, St. Louis, MO; author, For the City and Church Planter
“Faithmapping is excellent. When I wasn’t reading it I was thinking about it, and when I was reading it, I didn’t want to put it down. It is theologically profound and yet very easy to read.”
—Jessica Thompson, coauthor, Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus
“Daniel Montgomery and Mike Cosper are human torches, afire with the gospel and igniting the dry kindling all around them. This book, full of gospel beauty and Bible wisdom, can light up the path in front of you, as you walk the path God is stretching out before your feet. Read it, and feel the fire.”
—Russell D. Moore, Dean, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, Tempted and Tried
