What comes to mind when you think of "the Gospel"? Do you think of being forgiven or do you think of Jesus Christ? Some might say that such questions are tricks of semantics. John Piper passionately believes otherwise and reveals that the most loving thing about God is not his making much of us, but his enabling us to make much of him. Unabridged. 5.5 Hours. Narrated by Michael Kramer.
This book is a cry from the heart of John Piper. He is pleading that God himself, as revealed in Christ’s death and resurrection, is the ultimate and greatest gift of the gospel. // None of Christ’s gospel deeds and none of our gospel blessings are good news except as means of seeing and savoring the glory of Christ. Forgiveness is good news because it opens the way to the enjoyment of God himself. Justification is good news because it wins access to the presence and pleasures of God himself. Eternal life is good news because it becomes the everlasting enjoyment of Christ. // All God’s gifts are loving only to the degree that they lead us to God himself. That is what God’s love is: his commitment to do everything necessary (most painfully the death of his only Son) to enthrall us with what is most deeply and durably satisfying namely, himself.
