Already for Sale

The book is already being sold on and on in their "upcoming books" section. That was fast.

Check out this quote by J.I. Packer that Justin Taylor sent me:

"In Acts 2-5 we read of a church with, it seems, no buildings of its own, with loose and sometimes improvised leadership, but with each member apparently pulling his or her own weight in the work and witness that went on, and the impact on Jerusalem was great. Around us in the modern West we see big church buildings—some of them housing four-figure congregations, and others certainly intended to house congregations of that size—often furnished with an impressive hierarchy of ministers and other officials; but the congregations, such as they are, are mostly passengers, and city life proceeds as if the churches were not there."—J. I. Packer, Keep in Step with the Spirit (Grand Rapids: Baker, 1984), 254
