Books: Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman, and Jesus + Nothing = Everything by Tullian Tchividjian.

Quotes:  “Why do we do this?  [Why do we avoid the gospel?]  I’ll admit why I do it.  It’s because the gospel makes me disappear.  The gospel obliterates me, in a sense.  Suddenly life is no longer about my little world and my standards and my rules and goals and preferences.  It’s no longer about me and what I want.  It’s no longer about my strengths and achievements and attainments.  The gospel erases us, in that sense, which is why we avoid it.”   (Tchividjian, Jesus + Nothing =Everything, 121.)
