Baptist21 is excited to have Matt joining this year’s panel at the Southern Baptist Convention. Matt Carter is the Pastor of Preaching and Vision at Austin Stone Community Church in Austin, TX. He is the founding pastor of the church, which has grown from a core of 15 people in 2002 to 8,000 today. He is a committed expositor and started Austin Stone by preaching through the Gospel of John. In addition, he is passionate about seeing the church serving the needs of the city and working to bring about its renewal for the advancement of the gospel. The example of Austin Stone and The For the City Network serves as a model for churches all over that are committed to seeing their city renewed and transformed by the power of the gospel.

B21 is excited about a breakfast panel discussion at this year’s Southern Baptist Convention in Houston. The panel, hosted by the Gospel Project, will tackle the important topic of Christ-Centered Preaching. In the past few years there has been some debate over the merits of Christ-Centered Preaching, how it can be done, when is it appropriate, and much more. So, we believe this will be a very beneficial discussion for those who seek to teach and preach the Scriptures faithfully.
We are excited to once again have Pastor David Platt on our lunch panel at this year’s SBC.

This is a review of Eric Mason’s book Manhood Restored: How the Gospel makes Men Whole. We want to thank Jason Wright, MDiv student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, for doing this book review at the request of Baptist21. This book is available for purchase here.
“Another book on manhood?” I wasn’t sure I wanted to delve into another book designed to give a twelve-step plan to make me a better man for Jesus. But Eric Mason beat me to the punch, and started Manhood Restored with exactly those words. A host of books have taught men how to be “Wild at Heart,” a “Point Man,” or my personal favorite, a “Waffle.” While those books make valuable contributions to understanding Christian manhood, this book contributes in a way many others do not.
Eric Mason, often known as Emase, is the lead pastor and founder of Epiphany Fellowship in Philadelphia, PA. I appreciate the pastoral style of his writing and his ability to contextualize in such a way that his illustrations effectively reach his audience without a stretch.
