New Life, Better Life: Developing a Model for Church Revitalization from the Book of Hebrews
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this project is to explore the author of Hebrews’ approach to revitalization. The book of Hebrews demonstrates that church revitalization is not merely a matter of replacing an antiquated model for something more novel or vice-versa. Instead the author of Hebrews models an apostolic pattern of church revitalization—one committed to the priority of discipleship and theological training. The project is a series of six sermons designed to lead the congregation toward spiritual vitality by guiding hearers toward a Christ-centered philosophy of ministry. The first chapter addresses the topic of biblical theology and outlines the sermon series in Hebrews. The remaining six chapters use author-oriented exegesis and biblical theology to properly unpack and apply the passages in the modern context.
