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 do we 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.

Greg 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.

Top Highlights

“First, Paul tells his readers that it is God to whom they are accountable.” (Page 28)

“Second, Paul tells his readers that their problem is that they rebelled against God.” (Page 29)

“Third, Paul says that God’s solution to humanity’s sin is the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.” (Page 30)

“Finally, Paul tells his readers how they themselves can be included in this salvation.” (Page 31)

“Faith is not believing in something you can’t prove, as so many people define it. It is, biblically speaking, reliance. A rock-solid, truth-grounded, promise-founded trust in the risen Jesus to save you from sin.” (Page 74)

Greg Gilbert is one of the brightest and most faithful young men called to serve the church today. Here he offers us a penetrating, faithful, and fully biblical understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There is no greater need than to know the true Gospel, to recognize the counterfeits, and to set loose a generation of Gospel-centered Christians. This very important book arrives at just the right moment.

R. Albert Mohler Jr., president and Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Two realities make this a critically important book: the centrality of the Gospel in all generations and the confusion about the Gospel in our own generation. What Is the Gospel? provides a biblically faithful explanation of the Gospel and equips Christians to discern deviations from that glorious message. How I wish I could place this book in the hands of every pastor and church member.

—C. J. Mahaney, senior pastor, Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville
