The Gospel According to Jesus is a must read for every Christian. John MacArthur, in his usual easy to read and clear way, hits the central tenet of Christianity, how does an individual inherit eternal life? Many folks, including pastors and other church leaders, believe surrendering to Jesus Christ as Lord is optional for saving faith. They claim all that is necessary is to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and if, later in your life you submit to His Lordship, so much the better. MacArthur, using the words of Christ Himself, shows there is no salvation without a willingness to follow Jesus as Lord. The message of this book is timeless, since it is supported with a plethora of scripture references. I heartily recommend the book to any Christian desiring to communicate the Gospel accurately. This book, along with a companion volume entitled Faith Works (The Gospel According to the Apostles), are indispensible tools in the Lord's work.
