When I think of the contribution of Pastor and Author Phil Baker, I think of his focus on “God as the Goal!” His message through his first book and literary contribution to the world is not success which is temporal, money which can distract, or the pursuit of mirages which are counterfeit locals of fulfillment. His message is the mandatory need for GOD and GOD ALONE!! To assure his readers get that truth, a transparent pursuit of God is shared as our utmost necessity in life now & life eternal, illustrated by many destructive personal lifestyles (wineskins) that prevent us from embracing Him as we should. Join Phil Baker on this pilgrimage to live for what matters most. You’ll be glad you did!
Jesus delivered revolutionary teaching by asking great questions. In that same spirit, Phil is asking questions that modern Evangelicalism desperately needs to be asking. The beauty of “New” is that it takes us back to ideas that are very old to bring biblical perspective to modern theological debates. It is refreshing to dive into the ancient Hebrew and Bible texts and also the writings of the earliest church fathers. Regardless of where you stand theologically, “New” is a helpful experience to process not only what you believe but why you believe it. As you dig in, you might find that familiar traditions and beliefs are actually old wineskins in need of bursting. “New” journeys through Phil’s own questions of spirituality and faith, and it is a refreshingly honest narrative of pursuing the fullness of Christ.
