Publisher's Description

From Bible teacher John MacArthur, a revelatory exploration of what the apostle Paul actually taught about the Good News of Jesus.

The apostle Paul penned a number of very concise, focused passages in his letters to the early church that summarize the gospel message in just a few well-chosen words. Each of these key texts has a unique emphasis highlighting some essential aspect of the Good News of Jesus Christ. The chapters in this revelatory new book closely examine those vital gospel texts, one verse at a time.

John MacArthur, host of the popular media ministry Grace to You, tackles such questions as:

  • What is the gospel?
  • What are the essential elements of the message?
  • How can we be certain we have it right?
  • And how should Christians be proclaiming the Good News to the world?

As always, the answers John MacArthur gives are clear, compelling, well-reasoned, easy to grasp, and above all, thoroughly biblical. The Gospel According to Paul is written in a style that is easily accessible to lay people, including those who know very little about the Bible, while being of great value to seasoned pastors and experienced ministers. 

The Gospel According to Paul is the third in a series of books on the gospel by John MacArthur including – The Gospel According to Jesus and The Gospel According to the ApostlesThe Gospel According to Paul is also available in Spanish, Evangelio según Pablo.

    Just to be completely honest, while there are some that will not agree on some of the points that the author makes,this book does have a lot of very sound doctrine in it. However, the writing style for some reason didn't hold my interest as other works of John MacArthur have done in the past. Not that it's bad - just .. well... different. There are a few times in the book where I felt the author did get a little soap-boxish in his approach. Nevertheless, there are still a lot of very good things in it. I would probably recommend this book to read for someone who is already a believer to help them understand on a deeper level what that means. There are points that may go over the head of a new believer, but then again, for those few points, they can talk with their pastor or other church leader. If you are of the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement or lean away from Calvinism, you will likely encounter some points that you won't agree with in this book. Nevertheless, a lot of excellent exegesis in this book and you will very much appreciate it. Especially if you lean toward Calvinism like the author does. I received a copy of this book in exchange for this review from BookLook Bloggers and all opinions are my own.

    John MacArthur makes sure to examine key passages in the Pauline letters. MacArthur asks some key questions that are the foundation of our faith and answers them with Scripture and uses Paul's letters to do so. Some of those questions are:

    What is the gospel?

    What are the essential elements of the gospel?

    How can we be certain we have it right?

    We NEED to know and understand and digest the gospel. We should know what the gospel is and be able to explain to the next person as well as know Scripture to back it up. We should know the essential elements of the gospel like who is Jesus, who is the Holy Spirit, who is God. We should know their relationship and how they relate to us. We should know the function of the church and those within the church like your pastor. We should know what God likes and dislikes. We should know why God allowed Jesus to come here. And those are the types of questions that John MacArthur asks and helps us to understand.

    Dr.John MacArthur is God's gift to our generation of Christians. No one breaks down Scripture and offers such clear and concise Biblical explanations. Many authors boggle down the reader with heavy and complicated theological terminology but Dr.MacArthur writes in such a way that even a 12 year old could understand and follow along. Always a joy to read his work. No one does it better than Dr.John MacArthur.

    An excellent read. As our culture disintegrates at an ever increasing rate this book is a great faith-builder and source of strength for those who believe.

    In "The Gospel According to Paul," John MacArthur aims to lay out the gospel message that the apostle Paul preached and embodied as Christ's apostle to the Gentiles. MacArthur's motivation to write the book is due to his concern that the gospel message is being increasingly eroded in our times especially in respect to the penal substitutionary sacrifice of Jesus. Thus, the book is a careful exposition of the good news of Christ as preached through Paul who was inspired by the Spirit to write the bulk of the New Testament. MacArthur focuses on the book of Romans but draws widely from the apostle's other epistles while also comparing what Paul preaches to what Jesus taught in the Gospels. The chapters are systematically arranged to present the gospel using the five points of Calvinism as the underlying framework with a special emphasis on the atonement as the satisfaction of God's wrath and justice. The author argues that as God is a righteous God who cannot overlook sin, it was necessary for a suitable sacrifice to be offered to propitiate the wrath of God. To entirely pay for the sum of the human race's unrighteousness, only the Son of God who is the perfect God-man to atone for our sins fully. Christ's death was necessary and sufficient in allowing us to be declared righteous in the sight of God. At the end of the book, there are four appendixes that further complement the author's message and defense of the penal sacrifice of Christ.

    I would recommend this book to believers and non-believers alike who want a biblical and succinct summary of the gospel. Many people today are looking for a revamped version of the gospel that tweaks its message to fit their ideologies and tastes. In this book, MacArthur masterfully defends the key aspects of the orthodox Christian faith by showing what is written clearly in Scripture by the apostle Paul. Furthermore, the author defends against contemporary attacks on the gospel such as the Emergent movement and the New Perspective on Paul. Christians need to hold firmly to what is taught in Scripture and remain vigilant against any false gospel that attempts to corrupt the good news of Jesus Christ.
