One of the books that has most influenced my life and ministry is Michael Barrett‘s Complete in Him. Barrett unpacks the gospel thoroughly, worshipfully, and practically throughout the book, repeatedly reminding readers that “Right thinking about the gospel results in right living in the gospel.” Like I’ve said elsewhere, Barrett was gospel-centered before it was cool. And Complete in Him is Barrett at his best.
Amazingly, the book went out of print and has been unavailable for several years. However, due in part to requests from friends of MTC that it be made available again (for which I thank you!), new copies of the book have been printed. You can obtain a copy (or several) from the BJU Campus Store via this link. I urge you to do so—and quickly! There’s no guarantee that it will be available forever, though I hope it has a long run.
I commend it to you with every confidence it will nurture you and expand your appreciation of our Savior. Praise the Lord that this great resource is available once again!
Note: You can read a slew of testimonials about the book in the comments sections of this post.
