Item description for One Sacred Effort: The Cooperative Program of Southern Baptists by Chad Owen Brand & David E. Hankins...

Overview
One Sacred Effort provides a valuable account of the history and purpose of the Cooperative Program of Southern Baptists. The preamble of the original constitution of the Southern Baptist Convention describes the purpose of the SBC as "eliciting, combining, and directing the energies of the whole denomination in one sacred effort, for the propagation of the Gospel." These words are not only historically significant, they convey the mission and purpose and distill the distinct facets of the Cooperative Program.

Reviews - What do customers think about One Sacred Effort: The Cooperative Program of Southern Baptists?

Review: One Sacred Effort  Feb 15, 2010
This book is great for knowledge of the Southern Baptist Cooperative program. I do, however, wish the authors would have been a little less theologically complex. The complexity of some of the chapters can easily confuse, and often bore the reader, and I have to admit I was expecting a little more user-friendly approach to reading this.
 
Coleman speaks truth  May 17, 2005
Jan Coleman has done it again! She writes with warmth, truth, and encouragement, inspiring us to see for ourselves that obeying God is the only way we will achieve our purpose in life and have the assurance of complete protection in all our affairs. Personal stories abound, providing practical illustrations that will elevate our faith and trust in the one who loves us with an everlasting love.
 
Obedience is not a scary thing...  Apr 25, 2005
...it's the right thing--choosing God over that which would draw us away from Him. That's at the heart of Jan Coleman's message in Unshakeable, a fun, easy read, despite its challenging topic. I loved her remark at the end of the book: "There is always a way back to God. His unending love is the inner circle of safety. He doesn't care where we've been or what we've done, only where we are heading now." Jan gently leads us to that point where we can nod our heads and then walk in the same direction--toward Christ. I recommend this highly.
 
The Teacher Learns  Apr 18, 2005
I'm writing today from inside the parenting-an-adult-child meat grinder. I've been so busy teaching my daughters the lessons of life that I've neglected my own heart issues. "Unshakeable" has reminded me I must be on my own quest toward obedience. I love Jan's writing style - fun and sassy - her honesty and the great stories she tells to drive home the point.
 
This is a gem of a book!  Mar 15, 2005
UNSHAKABLE is brimming with stories of how the narrow path of obedience leads to freedom and contentment. Jan Colman provides an excellent framework for common weak spots: marital issues, prodigal children, financial struggles and personal integrity. She lays out the problems and the Biblical solutions in a way that is both motivating and engaging. This book has a nice balance of insights and examples it's not heavy-handed or preachy.

My favorite quote: "Obedience often means walking away from a comfortable lifestyle, letting go of a former identity, but when we nod to the vision and turn our steps toward it, the benefits are a stronger character, a deeper commitment, and an enhanced love for the one who leads the way."

As the author of "Avoiding the Greener Grass Syndrome: How to Grow Affair Proof Hedges Your Marriage" I highly recommend this book's focus on accountability and integrity.

Very inspiring!
