This is the first book I've read from the over twenty books I received at Together for the Gospel. It was a good read, seeking to draw together what Chandler calls the gospel 'in the air' and the gospel 'on the ground'. 'In the air' means a large-view picture of God's redemption of all things, while 'on the ground' is the work He is doing in individual lives. I appreciate Chandler's exhortation to balance the two so we are accurately presenting the gospel AND living it out.

Chandler is a young man, and his cultural references and irreverent (ha!--guess I should say 'slangy'--that IS a word!) style of writing was jarring to me. However, this would probably make it more interesting and 'relevant' to younger people who wouldn't want to sit through Calvin's commentaries. :) And it is a superficial thing, because I agreed with what he was saying even if I did wince a few times at the way he said it.
