On 12/31 cmullisjr wrote: It’s not what you think. Or so the title tells us. The subtitle says “Why Christianity is about so much more than going to Heaven when you die”.

On 5/22 cmullisjr wrote: Where do you find the gospel? We expect to hear it from Christians. We expect to hear it in our churches and even on Christian radio stations.

On 4/15 cmullisjr wrote: Contagious Disciple Making is a book that leaves many people motivated to want to take the Great Commission seriously.
