We live in a self-help world. But Christianity doesn’t work as just a moral philosophy or code of ethics. It makes sense only when it’s built upon the foundation of the Gospel, the Good News. The simple message that God has done everything he requires to reconcile sinners to himself isn’t just the church’s slogan, but its lifeblood.
In this candid and hopeful book, Michael Horton challenges us to reorient our faith and our Christian practice toward the transformative, Christ-centered Gospel—both in the church and in the world.

Praise for the Print Edition
Mike Horton has once again hit the nail on the head. With engaging clarity he demonstrates that the gospel is not just for non-Christians; it’s for Christians too. Horton’s book is a flavorsome reminder that in order for Christians to make a difference in this world, we must be driven by something otherworldly—namely, the gospel.

Michael Horton is one who understands the times. More than a fad, a twelve-step program, or a forty-day challenge, Horton reminds us that the gospel is the everyday brick and mortar of a life built on the promise of eternal life in Jesus Christ. Before you read another book, read this one.
