What Is the Gospel?

Author: Greg Gilbert
Publisher: Crossway
Genre: Evangelism & Missions
Book 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.

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.

The gospel is made clear in this riveting book by Gilbert. He cuts through all secondary matters to get straight to the truth about Jesus Christ. He answers any questions you may have concerning the gospel with biblical exegesis. This enables the reader to identify counterfeit gospels and false teachings.
