What does Jesus mean when he says, Follow me? Twenty years ago, pastor-teacher and bestselling author John MacArthur tackled that seemingly simple question---and wrote a book that has since taken its place among Christianitys classics. This 20th Anniversary edition of MacArthurs provocative book has been revised and contains one new chapter.
John MacArthur is the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, president of The Masters College and Seminary, and featured teacher with the Grace to You media ministry. Grace to You radio, video, audio, print, and website resources reach millions worldwide each day. Over four decades of ministry, John has written dozens of bestselling books, including The MacArthur Study Bible, The Gospel According to Jesus, The New Testament Commentary series, The Truth War, and The Jesus You Cant Ignore. He and his wife, Patricia, have four married children and fifteen grandchildren.
The first edition of The Gospel According to Jesus won wide acclaim in confronting the easy-believism that has characterized some aspects of evangelical Christianity. Over the past 50 years, a handful of books have become true classics, revered world-wide for their crystal-clear presentation of the Gospel and lauded for their contribution to the Christian faith. These extraordinary books are read, re-read, and discussed in churches, Bible study groups, and homes everywhere. John MacArthurs The Gospel According to Jesus is one of those books. In The Gospel According to Jesus, MacArthur tackles the idea of easy believism, challenging Christians to re-evaluate their commitment to Christ by examining their fruits. MacArthur asks, What does it really mean to be saved? He urges readers to understand that their conversion was more than a mere point in time, that, by definition, it includes a lifetime of obediently walking with Jesus as Lord. This 20th anniversary edition of MacArthurs provocative, Scripture-based book contains one new chapter and is further revised to provide Christians in the 21st century a fresh perspective on the intrinsic relationship between faith and works, clearly revealing Why Jesus is both Savior and Lord to all who believe.
