Moving along to the fifth best book that I read in 2012 is one that is short (73 pgs.) but packs an incredible wallop. I am certain that the title probably stimulates a strong response that is either positive or negative. It also is curious to note that this is a single sermon that Greenhill preached to his church. Speaking of long sermons, this is one. I doubt Joel Osteen will be preaching anything remotely related to this theme in 2013. However, we who serve as pastors owe it to ourselves and to those who hear us to preach this kind of content. I am reminded of what Paul wrote to Timothy (1 Tim. 4:16) and it is sharpened by the Amplified Version:
Look well to yourself (to your own personality), and to [your] teaching; persevere in these things—hold to them; for by doing so you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
