Product Description

Everyone is looking for power. Political campaigns play to the power of fear and hope; advertising agencies rely on the power of appetite, both wielding power by the means of words.

But churches have something different and better. Churches have the gospel. Though we live in the world, we must not wage war like the world, or fight with its weapons. On the contrary, we have divine power to demolish strongholds.

The gospel consists merely of words, but those words have the unexpected and underestimated power to create new life, to justify, to prepare a bride, to give the foretaste of glory. Christian conversion depends upon the underestimated power of the gospel. The Underestimated Gospel discusses this very topic as a part of the Together for the Gospel.

Authors Jonathan Leeman, R. Albert Mohler Jr., Thabiti Anyabwile, David Platt, Kevin DeYoung, Mark Dever, C.J. Mahaney, Matt Chandler, John Piper, and J. Ligon Duncan III call readers to herald a common refrain: Do not underestimate the gospel, and do not underestimate the God of this gospel.

    I know 2012 was a few years back, but that didnt stop B&H Books from publishing this work in 2014. Jonathan Leeman is the General Editor for this compilation of sermons. He did a great job putting them together in book format. Here is list of the Pastors whose sermons are featured in this book, David Platt, John Piper, Kevin DeYoung, Matt Chandler, R. Albert Mohler Jr. Thabiti Anyabwile, Mark Dever, C.J. Mahaney, and J. Ligon Duncan III. With this list of names you would expect to see some good sermons. I did, and I wasnt disappointed. As you can tell from the name of the book, and the conference, the messages focused on the gospel of Jesus, and its power to change everything.

    I dont want to do the typical critical review here. It isnt really that kind of work. This was sermons, preached to Pastors, for their edification, by other Pastors, at a conference. It was not a work of fiction, a history book, a Christian living book, theology book, or a biography. Considering that, I would rather just encourage you to read this volume of sermons for your own edification. You dont have to be a Pastor to get the message from this book. Any Christian could pick this up and read it for their benefit. These men laid out for us the importance of preaching the gospel, and how it applies to every aspect of Christian conversion, security, life, evangelism, and discipleship. You get a view through a portal into the head and heart of these Pastors as they preach about the gospel.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is tired of hearing fluff that doesnt actually change anything, to Pastors who lack authority in their preaching, to Pastors who want to see their flock changed by the word of God. The worst that can happen is that you would spend a short time reading some very good sermons. If you are a false teacher, and false convert, the best thing that could happen, is that you could be genuinely saved, and motivated to give up that useless moralism, life enhancement, prosperity, best life now, drivel, youve been pushing, and actually preach the gospel of Jesus Christ crucified. Sorry if that seemed a bit harsh. I have sat in Churches that dont preach the gospel. It gets me riled up now when I think about other poor souls sitting in a Church having nonsense preached at them. Seriously, if you are a Pastor, or know a Pastor, get them this book. It will aid them and encourage them.
