New Dever Books

Dever_deliberate_book_2Mark Dever, pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist in D.C. and founder/leader of 9Marks, has twoDever_nt_book_1 books coming out in the fall.  The Deliberate Church: Building Your Ministry on the Gospel (with Paul Alexander) is coming out in September and The Message of the New Testament: Promises Kept is coming out in November.

I know no preacher who deals with larger passages and preaches whole books of the Bible in one sermon like Dever.  Much of my preaching and the preaching of my friends has been influenced by him.

He basically sees the Bible in four words: promises made, promises kept.  I think he has a great perspective on the message of the Bible and I'm very much looking forward to this book.  I think it will also be helpful to see more of his thoughts on the local church beyond his previous work, 9 Marks of a Healthy Church.
