The Gospel’s Power and Message


Reformation Heritage 2012

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Paul Washer argues that one of the greatest crimes of contemporary Christianity is its neglect of the gospel. Absent from too many pulpits are the essential themes which make up the very core of the gospel—the justice of God, the radical depravity of man, and the atonement of Christ. In The Gospel’s Power and Message, Washer addresses these essential elements of Christ’s good news and provides a guide to help us rediscover the gospel in all its beauty, scandal, and saving power. Recovering the gospel can transform lives, strengthen proclamation, and bring glory to God.

Praise for the Print Edition

In these days of insipid, man-centered, ear-tickling preaching, we need sons of thunder who fear God and faithfully preach his word without fear of consequences. My friend, Paul Washer, is one such man. May God use this book to reach the lost and to glorify his name.

Ray Comfort, author, The Way of the Master

This book is a thoughtful, poignant reminder that the message Christ commissioned us to proclaim is neither spongy nor trivial. Nor can it be improved by human revision. The gospel may be a stumbling block to some and seem like foolishness to others—but to those who are called, it is the power and the wisdom of God.

—Phil Johnson, executive director, Grace to You

I am profoundly thankful for the courageous clarity of The Gospel’s Power and Message by Paul Washer. . . . [He] strikes all the right notes in this powerful, biblical study.

John MacArthur, pastor-teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, CA

In this outstanding volume Paul Washer masterfully opens up from the Bible the heart of the gospel, giving us an invaluable resource for our lives. This book is a wonderful gift to the church and like no other that I have seen on this subject. It should be read by every Christian but especially those who labor in the ministry, for it will greatly assist them in being faithful proclaimers of God’s good news message to a lost and fallen world.

—Rob Ventura, pastor, Grace Community Baptist Church, North Providence, RI
