Book Review

Caleb Breakey. Called to Stay. Aaron Armstrong concludes, “So what does the church need? In Called to StayBreakey is right that the church needs people committed to investing. People willing to live intentionally, to live sacrificially, and to live uncompromisingly for the good of others, and trusting God for the results (160). But we don’t need more triumphalism—when we see ourselves as on a mission to “save” the church, we’re inevitably going to get off track. Instead, we need committed, faithful Christians are in it to win it in their local churches. And when we’ve got that, beautiful things can happen.”
