We’re nearing the end of our current study of “Twelve Ordinary Men” which means it’s time to think about “what next”. Earlier, we talked about the “Jefferson Bible” as a choice, but upon further look that book could be difficult to align along our weekly cadence. So, Plan B is a different book that ironically is by the same author as our current study.
I’ve circulated around the suggestion to several men in our group and the feedback appears unanimous as “let’s do it”. So, without further delay, please plan on “The Gospel According to God” as our next study!
Here’s one overview of the book, which uses Isaiah 53 as the primary foundation for the study:
“He was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
Often hailed as one of the greatest chapters in the Bible, the prophecy of the suffering servant in Isaiah 53 foretells the crucifixion of Jesus, the central event in God’s ultimate plan to redeem the world.
This book explains the prophetic words of Isaiah 53 verse by verse, highlighting important connections to the history of Israel and to the New Testament—ultimately showing us how this ancient prophecy illuminates essential truths that undergird our lives today.

You can order the book through Amazon or other online sites. Please plan to purchase your book in the next week or so.
We’ll wrap the current series on November 8th. New series will kick off on November 15th.
Have a great rest of the week! I’ll see everyone tomorrow morning at the Cornwell Center!
