Quietly, Western Christians have adopted worldly attitudes and behaviors toward dating, marriage, divorce, money, leisure, and a whole host of other things. And the pulpits have been largely silent.

Pastoral and prophetic, convincing and convicting, Big Ordinary Sins is not silent. Calling for an embrace of Christ’s call for us to take up his cross and follow him, this book examines many of the areas where we need to repent — and shows us the gracious way forward.

As with other volumes in the Core 100 Series, Big Ordinary Sins is an easy-reading 100 page book, and features large margins for convenient note-taking. With its affordability and approachability, this is an excellent gift choice.
