Product Description

Too often, the church overlooks Scripture's main objective for deep life involvement with God. Snodgrass shows that the gospel emphasizes participation in Jesus' death and resurrection and engagement in his purposes. Understanding and internalizing this message---the same ideology the church's great thinkers stressed---will enable the body of Christ to recover its identity. 208 pages, softcover from Baker.

Publisher's Description

Too often, the church hasn't done justice to its own gospel because it has neglected how much the New Testament message is about deep involvement in life with God. Senior New Testament scholar Klyne Snodgrass offers a corrective, explaining that the church will never be what it is supposed to be without a recovery of the gospel.

This brief, accessibly written, and timely book shows that the biblical message is about attachment to Christ, participation in his death and resurrection, and engagement in his purposes. Snodgrass demonstrates that understanding and appropriating the gospel of participation conforms with what the church's great thinkers have emphasized throughout history and enables the church to recover its true identity.

This book brings the notion of participation in the gospel to a wider church audience. While other studies on this topic focus mostly on Paul's writings, You Need a Better Gospel shows that participation is the emphasis of the entire Bible, including the Old Testament. The real gospel, which offers participation in life with God, is astounding in its beauty and its power for life.
