Publisher's Description

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.

    I sure appreciate Greear's reminder to live a gospel-saturated life. He "rediscovered" the gospel and it gave him a joy he had never known in all his years of religion. He wants us to experience that too.

    He reacquaints us with the gospel and encourages us to experience grace as the driving force behind every moment of our lives. He wants us to see how the gospel makes us passionate for God, frees us from the captivity of sin and moves us to sacrifice for others.

    The first part of his book is about the gospel. Then he gives us the tool, a four-part prayer, to saturate our lives with the gospel. The first two parts help renew our minds to God's acceptance of us and its value. The third part of the prayer helps us understand what responding to the gospel looks like. The fourth part helps us see the world through the gospel and moves us to "audacious" faith.

    He has great insights. Want the approval of others? The gospel shows us God's approval is more valuable than anyone else's. Forget who you are in Christ? "Preach the gospel to yourself." (54) Need to change? The power comes from the gospel. He also helps us understand what a gospel-centered church looks like.

    Being "gospel-centered" is not moving beyond the gospel, but continually going deeper into it. "It's about realizing that the gospel is the final answer to every issue and problem in life and about seeing the whole world through the lens of the cross." (191)

    No matter the diagnosis, Greear writes,"Faith in the gospel is the prognosis." (245) "Make the gospel the center of your life." (247) I am looking forward to using Greear's prayer. It's an inspiration.

    Actually this book shows how your relationship with Jesus Christ can change your life. It really gets to the heart of the matter and helps you understand what God wants of his children and what they can expect in return. This book is excellent for anyone struggling with their walk with Jesus, and/ or feeling like you do not have what it takes to be all that God has planned for your life. This book has helped me greatly as I struggle with guilt over past actions in my life, and feelings of not as good a Christian as I should be. If nothing else it will help you realize how important you are to Jesus and the price he paid to call you one of his own. I highly recomend this book to anyone who has been beaten down by all the rules and doctrine of traditional churches, it will enlighten you to see what God really wants from you. Thank You, JD, as you have helped change TJ's life by by helping me realize who I am in Jesus Christ.
