October 2020 Pastor’s Book Club Pick
I’m really looking forward to this month’s book, The Courage to Stand: Facing Your Fear Without Losing Your Soul by Russell Moore. Dr. Moore, the President of the ERLC, is one of my favorite authors and preachers, and I have been anticipating this new book since he announced it over the summer. You can see this announcement on Youtube, and learn a bit more about the book straight from the writer.
I’ve had the opportunity to meet Dr. Moore several times, and whether we were talking about books, Batman, or the church, I’ve always found him to be humble, intelligent, wise, and joyful. When you read him or hear him speak he is scriptural and challenging, which is what we will see in this book.
I think Dr. Moore is right when he says that what we often think in courageous is not what the Bible defines as courage. As we study the life of Elijah with Dr. Moore is this book, we will find a new lens to look through to understand courage, as well as ways to stand strong in our biblical convictions.
Next month we are going to reading The Common Rule by Justin Whitmel Earley.
