This author combines the Ten Commandments and how they affect the purpose of God's plan for making Disciples. Social issues and a congregation's lack of mission contribute to a weak and ineffective ministry. They are missing God's specific plan found in the Great Commission. The malady or illness of a church can be cured by two things, God's law, and the Gospel.
This author brings focus to both cures throughout the book. His focus is to stir up the Christian church, one believer at a time.
