Top Highlights

“Second, we must stand confident in justification:” (Page 223)

“If it is true that right thinking about the gospel produces right living in the gospel, then right thinking about Christ is paramount. Christ defines Christianity: He is the essence of the gospel.” (Page 26)

“For the Christian, everything—both his eternal destiny and his earthly journey—depends on what he thinks of Christ. That Christ is everything and that Christians are complete in Him ought to generate joyous satisfaction in every believing heart.” (Page 1)

“The Bible sets the pattern of first knowing (Romans 6:3, 6, 9), then believing (Romans 6:11), and then doing (Romans 6:12, 13). To reverse that order or to omit a step is deleterious to a successful Christian life.” (Page 4)

“The gospel is Christ, and being saved is having Christ: ‘He that hath the Son hath life’ (1 John 5:12).” (Page 1)

    An excellent summary of the theology of the gospel. Particularly well-suited to people coming out of legalistic settings. Barrett makes the theology of the gospel understandable without being shallow. Highly recommended.
