Fight Clubs: Gospel-Centered Discipleship

Jonathan Dodson's new e-Book, Fight Clubs: Gospel-Centered Discipleship, is now available for free at The Resurgence.

Here's a description:
If you’ve struggled to follow Jesus by veering away from the gospel into duty-bound legalism or moralistic indifference, then this book is for you! Fight Clubs is a radical call to fight the fight of faith in the strength of the gospel. Jonathan Dodson calls us to join the fight against sin, legalism, and license by looking to Christ and His gospel. Fight Clubs equips us to fight the fight of faith by exposing the fleeting promises of sin and drawing us into the grace-saturated promises of God. Displacing defective forms of discipleship, Dodson keeps the gospel central by tapping into various layers of biblical motivations that promote joyful obedience to Christ. The book also provides a strategy to fight sin as the church---small fighting communities called Fight Clubs. Read this book; form a fight club; and start fighting in the strength of the gospel.

1. Why Fight?: The Call to Fight
