ERLC announces ‘Gospel for Life’ book series with B&H Publishing Group

NASHVILLE, Tenn.The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention announced its plan today to publish the Gospel for Life book series through a partnership with B&H Publishing Group.

The Gospel for Life book series will feature issue-specific volumes from noted leaders that address hot-button ethical issues facing Christians in todays culture. The goal of the series is to produce gospel-centered resources that equip Christians and local churches to engage ethical issues with convictional kindness.

The announcement was made in conjunction with the start of the ERLCs 2015 Leadership Summit on The Gospel and Racial Reconciliation, March 26-27 in Nashville, Tenn.

ERLC President Russell Moore and ERLC Director of Policy Studies Andrew Walker will serve as editors for the series.

Commenting on the series, Moore said:

Our goal with this series is to help connect the agenda of the gospel to the complex questions of the day in a way that is accessible to and helpful for Christians and churches. I am thrilled to get to partner with this team of talented scholars and pastors to produce these volumes, and we pray the Lord would use them to equip the saints to face the tough questions of twenty-first century life from a kingdom perspective.

Devin Maddox, Christian Living and Leadership Publisher at B&H Publishing Group, also expressed enthusiasm about the book.

“The time has long past for churches to begin preparing to engage a rapidly changing culture. I couldn’t be more excited for B&H to partner with the ERLC in a shared mission to serve churches in this way.”

There will be a total of nine books released in the series. The first three books, tentatively scheduled to release in spring 2016, will focus on racial reconciliation, same-sex marriage and religious liberty.

Authors for the first round of books include:

R. Albert Mohler Jr.- President, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

John Piper- Founder and Teacher, DesiringGod.org

J.D. Greear- Pastor, The Summit Church

Russell Moore- President, ERLC

Trillia Newbell- Director of Community Outreach, ERLC

Eric Mason- Founder and Pastor, Epiphany Fellowship

The books will be written in an accessible manner for laypersons in the church and will include discussion questions at the end of each chapter to be used for small group discussion.
