Mike Glenn is a Contributing Editor of Preaching and a gifted communicator, leading Brentwood Baptist Church in Brentwood, Tenn., as it became one of the nation’s fastest-growing congregations. In his outstanding new book The Gospel of Yes (WaterBrook Press), which grew out of a sermon series, Glenn helps readers understand the God of Scripture is not a God of negativity, but instead calls us to say yes to His best for us. He writes: “Jesus’ life shows us how to win people, not how to pound them into submission. Jesus is the perfect example of a life lived for, not against. We are called to live for Christ, not against the world.” Once you read this book, you’ll be eager to preach your own sermon series on God’s most powerful word.
