Wake Up Call

Here's  link to Trevin Wax's excellent review on Jared Wilson's new book Gospel Wakefulness (to be released the end of October)  -  Wake Me Up, Lord! A Review of Jared Wilson’s “Gospel Wakefulness” at: Kingdom People:
 Jared Wilson’s new book Gospel Wakefulness made me think. In a good way. In the “thinking that leads to worship” kind of way. That’s why, despite a couple of concerns, I endorsed Gospel Wakefulness and I commend it to you.
In the book, Jared makes the case that Christians need not only to believe the gospel but to delight in it to the point that sin becomes increasingly bitter and Christ becomes our supreme treasure. He defines gospel wakefulness as “treasuring Christ more greatly and savoring His power more sweetly than before” (24).
This is another one on my wish list. So many books, so little time (and not enough money!)
