How can we truly know that God always does what is best for us? Focusing on Romans 8:32, Sinclair Ferguson reminds us what lies at the heart of the gospel. In the atonement, we behold the Father who refused to spare his own Son - and the Son who was obedient in being delivered up on our behalf. If this is the kind of God we have, and if this is what he has already shown us of himself, then we can confidently say he is for us.

In this brief but nonetheless potent treatment of the heart of the gospel, Sinclair Ferguson reaches deep into the Scriptures to disclose the love of the triune God for fallen sinners. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ because the Father willingly gave up his only begotten Son for us and the Son willingly interceded for us. Ferguson writes about these vital truths in a simple but yet powerful manner. This is a wonderful elixir for the soul and should not be missed.
Like a well-worn coin, the heart of the gospelsummarized in John 3:16can become too familiar, taken for granted. Sinclair Ferguson peels away the veneer and reveals the bright luster of the greatest story ever told. And the way that he tells this familiar story is as accessible as it is arresting. This is a book that I will give to non-Christian friends as well as seasoned believers. The Heart of the Gospel not only informs, but transforms, as it proclaims Christ in his saving office.
