I Am Going by Daniel L. Akin and Bruce Riley Ashford is much more than a book. It’s a challenge, an initiative, and a movement. In it, the authors explain how each and every one of us is called to go on mission with the gospel. The authors do not suggest that we all need to catch the next flight to a third-world nation. Instead, they offer practical opportunities, along with biblical admonitions, for every Christian to “go” for God with our churches, to our neighborhoods, our jobs, and yes, throughout the world. The authors debunk the notion that the Great Commission is solely for missionaries and instead encourage Christians to go to their neighborhood, their co-workers, and unreached people groups with the Good News. As I mentioned, I Am Going is more than just a book; each chapter ends with a call to action, and a pledge for the reader to sign, indicating how they will participate and contribute to the Great Commission on a daily basis, starting today! I would love to see this book and this program be offered in my church and churches everywhere, to start an initiative where EVERYONE in our churches can participate in the command that God places before us in Matthew 28:18-20. Please, please read this book – share it with your church, your pastor, and your friends, and decide where you are going!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from B&H Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
