What is the Gospel? — Greg Gilbert

This newest addition to the IXMarks series presents a clear, straightforward statement of the gospel, the third mark of a healthy church.

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 are we to 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.

Greg Gilbert is the senior pastor at Third Avenue Baptist Church in Louisville, KY.

    Reply to interview heard on the christian world view: One problem i think u neglected to talk about in depth as it has been the gospel is presented in the United States by all denominations as a success machine. In which mostly resembles ancient Romes view of their gods, blessing them, therefore they must be favored or elected by their gods. In a similar sense the common person in America has therefore been defrauded of the truth in which make them as ill treated and despised as those in ancient roman times and throughout history.
