What is the Gospel? By Gregg Gilbert

The essence of Christianity is the life, death, and resurrection account of the Lord Jesus Christ. Relativism, however, has brought the "gospel" to mean just about anything; existing now as a byword within the christianese lexicon. Enter Gregg Gilbert's little black book. A graduate from Yale and Southern and recently pastoring under Mark Dever, Gilbert brings orthodoxy back into the limelight.  He presents God's love in Christ for sinners against a backdrop of his wrath and judgement. The chapter Jesus Christ the Saviour reverently presents the substitutionary atonement from the Scriptures revealing the heartbeat of the Good News. Simplistic in style and clear in presentation, Gilbert removes the fog and presents Christ's evangel without dulling down its harder points. Read and then re-read this book.
