Product Description

What is the gospel? It seems like a simple question, yet it has been known to incite some heated responses, even in the church. How are we to formulate a clear, biblical understanding of the gospel? Tradition, reason, and experience all leave us ultimately disappointed. If we want answers, we must turn to the Word of God. Greg Gilbert does so in What Is the Gospel? Beginning with Paul's systematic presentation of the gospel in Romans and moving through the sermons in Acts, Gilbert argues that the central structure of the gospel consists of four main subjects: God, man, Christ, and a response. The book carefully examines each and then explores the effects the gospel can have in individuals, churches, and the world. Both Christian and non-Christian readers will gain a clearer understanding of the gospel in this valuable resource.

It's five stars, because a clear articulation of the Gospel can't be anything other than five stars! This book will be especially valuable to new believers who want to clearly understand the Gospel for themselves, and to be able to explain it to others.

We would do well to remember, however, that it is not faith in justification by faith that saves. It is faith in CHRIST that saves. How well were any of us able to articulate these things when we were first born again? In my case, not very well. But I know I was saved. We need to be careful, in applying the message of this book, that we don't get into the position of some Reformed churches where a new member is asked to write out his personal testimony to read to the congregation, only to be told to re-write it, and re-write it again, until it is acceptable to those in authority; only it is now no longer HIS personal testimony. I would much rather see a 'rawness' in the testimony of believers than evidence of merely repeating verbatim what they've been taught by others, or read in books.

"The Power of the Gospel" chapter was really interesting, where Greg laments the fact that the beauty and power and vastness of the Gospel so often gets crowded out with thoughts about what's happening on C.N.N., cleaning the car, eating lunch, etc. I think that there is a more subtle danger. We're so busy blogging, Facebooking and tweeting on the beauty, power and vastness of the Gospel - and hoping that others will notice how well we've done it - that we've forgotten to do the very thing we're seeking to promote: WORSHIP! We're all agreed that theology should lead to doxology. But does it? Do we have the time in our evangelical busy-ness?

What more as a Christian could I have asked for? Not much. This was the most biblical explanation of the Gospel I have ever read about. It was truthful, where the Bible was used rightly as the sole source of authority on the matter of the Gospel. There are a number of counterfeit "gospels" in the world today, but there is only one true Gospel, that has the power to save sinners. This little book articulated that one true Gospel in a biblically clear manner, that made sense, was objective, but above all, faithful to King Jesus and his message to sinners.

Clear, concise and accurate - this book is going to be a classic for many years to come. A great book for ministers to lend out, and a great book for sharing the Gospel with.

The question of the title, for all its apparent simplicity, is by no means one that can be easily answered winsomely, directly, and clearly. That our author manages it so well here is a great credit to him. He does so by calling us back to the authority of the Bible and setting out some of the foundational realities of the human condition. Those established, he very warmly depicts Christ Jesus as the answer to man's sin in accordance with God's holiness, before driving home the urgent necessity of both faith and repentance in response to the gospel as the God-appointed route of entering the kingdom. Taking a little time to clear away well-meaning but flawed alternatives to Christ and him crucified, he concludes with some applications to various classes of reader. Intelligent without being highbrow, simple without being overly simplistic, and clear without being shallow, this is an excellent resource both for the people of God in knowing their Saviour and his salvation, and as a gift for those asking sincere and pointed questions about what this good news is, and what it means to be saved.

A very clear explanation of the Gospel, I found this book concise and to the point. So many books about the Gospel leave the reader more confused about the Bible and Jesus. Not so here you really do get the Gospel explained and in no doubt of it's importance to mankind. the author is no doubt a full exponent of the Bible he totally believes the whole text from Genesis 1 to the end of Revelation. This is a must read for all peoples whether Christian or non believer. Especially non believer, you'll benefit from an understanding of the true Christian view.
