I'm so excited about John Dickson coming to our store. I'm almost finished with his newest book The Best Kept Secret of Christian Mission. Michael Bird has recently commented on how much he liked it. Endorsements for the book include N. T. Wright, Christopher Wright, Alistair Begg, I. Howard Marshall, Richard Bauckham and more. He is from Australia so his name may be new to many of you. So to give you a taste of what's to come I'll be posting a few clips over the next week from John so you get a feel for what he's like. I know you won't be disappointed. Oh, by the way, everyone who comes to the event on Tuesday June 8th at 7:00 pm will receive a FREE copy of The Best Kept Secret of Christian Mission. Mark your calendars! You can visit the website for the book which includes a study guide, videos and more.
