Fight Clubs: Gospel-centered Discipleship by Jonathan Dodson

Free eBook at The Resurgence

Dodson explains:
I simply preached a sermon on fighting the fight of faith and cast a vision for Fight Clubs. People started forming them right away. I quickly wrote an article to give the groups some guidance. The groups went viral. People started meeting all over the city to fight the fight of faith during the week, in bars, coffee shops, and homes. Fight Clubs can vary in health and are difficult to monitor, which is a big reason I wrote this booklet. I wanted to equip our people to fight well, with Spirit-empowered faith and gospel centered motivation. As the church grew, we started some sign-ups but continued to insist that Fight Clubs remain relationship-based whenever possible. Good fighting springs from relationships of trust and confidence. So how do they work? Durden laid down eight rules for his fight clubs, we have three: 1) Know Your Sin. 2) Fight your Sin. 3) Trust your Savior.
