Word versus Deed: Resetting the Scales to a Biblical Balance
By Duane Litfin
“Duane Litfin’s Word versus Deed addresses a topic of perennial importance for the church and pressing relevance for our own generation. Litfin is thoroughly convinced—on the basis of Scripture—that the gospel cannot be preached merely with deeds but must be proclaimed with words. He uses his extensive background in rhetoric and theology to explain why this is so and then employs his wisdom as a pastor to show the proper relationship between gospel words and gospel-worthy deeds in Christian life and witness.”
-Philip Graham Ryken, President, Wheaton College
“Duane Litfin has written a book that needs to find its way into every preacher’s briefcase or backpack—and quickly. With care and candor, he reminds us all of the Bible’s priority of verbal proclamation. Evenhanded and deeply biblical, Word versus Deed does indeed reset the biblical balance. I am very thankful for this book, and you will be, too.”
-R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Here’s an interview with Dr. Litfin about this vital topic.
