Gospel ministry is much more than simply evangelism. It is about shaping the whole of our church life and activities by the content of and imperatives of the gospel.

Wow. I'm sure there are other good books out there that challenge churches/bodies of believers to make a difference, to stretch outside their comfort zones, to remember that the Gospel is "what it's all about."
