Could the gospel be lost in evangelical churches? In this book, J.D. Greear shows how moralism and legalism have often eclipsed the gospel, even in conservative churches. Gospel cuts through the superficiality of religion and reacquaints you with the revolutionary truth of God's gracious acceptance of us in Christ. The gospel is the power of God, and the only true source of joy, freedom, radical generosity, and audacious faith. The gospel produces in us what religion never could: a heart that desires God.
The book's core is a "gospel prayer" by which you can saturate yourself in the gospel daily. Dwelling on the gospel will release in you new depths of passion for God and take you to new heights of obedience to Him. Gospel gives you an applicable, exciting vision of how God will use you to bring His healing to the world.
Even in conservative churches, the Gospel has been eclipsed by moralism and legalism. J.D. Greear's new book, simply titled "Gospel," cuts through the superficiality of religion and reacquaints readers with the revolutionary truth of the Gospel. Grasping what the Gospel shows us about God leads us from a life of self-involvement to one of joy, freedom, radical generosity and audacious faith. Sin is not overcome by a resolution to do better, but by standing in awe of what God has done for us in Christ.
God is not just after obedience. He's after a new kind of obedience, and that obedience is produced only by the Gospel.
The core of this book is a "Gospel prayer" Greear wrote for his church, celebrating God's faithfulness, presence, love and promise. It goes to war against the incipient works-righteousness and idolatry in our hearts, and leads us to radical generosity and audacious faith. It gives readers an appli- cable, exciting vision of how God might use them to bring His healing to the world.
