From master expositor and Bible teacher John MacArthur comes a revelatory exploration of what the apostle Paul actually taught about the good news of Jesus. In his characteristically candid and pastoral style, MacArthur helps readers obtain a right understanding of the gospel given to us by the Lord—the very same gospel that was put into the mouths and the pens of the apostles, including Paul, and that has been preached for the past 2,000 years—so that it may be proclaimed to the world, as has been commanded. This new exposition not only highlights key passages in Paul's epistles, examining them verse-by-verse, but also unpacks critical lessons regarding the essence, elements, relevancy, and application of the gospel for today's disciples.
Completing the trilogy MacArthur began with The Gospel According to Jesus, this is a clear, compelling, well-reasoned, and thoroughly biblical account of the good news at the heart of Paul's teaching that is comprehensive in its scope while remaining accessible to seasoned pastors and lay readers alike.

contemplativereflections4 Stars Out Of 5Book Review: The Gospel According to PaulMay 30, 2017contemplativereflectionsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0In "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.

JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Sound theologyMay 20, 2017JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3The writings of the apostle Paul make up a majority of the New Testament. He is a self-proclaimed defender of the gospel. So, what does Paul have to say about the gospel? John MacArthur lays out Paul's message, calling upon his writings and the other apostles' to make the case that Paul's gospel truly is the gospel of Christ.
The teaching in this book is sound, but I was not able to get through it. I listen to John MacArthur on the radio and I've read and enjoyed a couple of his books, but the writing in this book was off. Maybe a book of this brevity wasn't the right format to present this topic. Maybe it was the structure. I'm not really sure, but it didn't leave me looking forward to picking the book back up.
