Publisher's Description

We live with our own thoughts 24/7. Often we are carried along by sinful thinking instead of intentionally speaking truth to ourselves. How can we start changing this? How can we live lives that are influenced by the gospel moment by moment? William Farley argues that mature Christians solve many spiritual problems in their lives by preaching the gospel to themselves. The gospel is not one event but a story that began before time and stretches into eternity. Key moments in this story—such as Jesus’ incarnation, death, resurrection, and ascension—teach us lessons that can be applied to life every single day. In this user-friendly book, Farley shows us how.

Editorial Reviews

Pastor-theologian Bill Farley has given us a grand “tool” for sustaining and elevating our souls by preaching the massive gospel of Christ to, of all people, our selves! This small gem of a book provides a joyous gospel feast that begins with our election in Christ before the foundation of the world and ends with Christ’s new creation. No small thoughts here! This is the recipe for big, expansive and ever-expanding hearts.
Pastors would have to engage in very little counseling if Christians would prioritize what Bill Farley exhorts his readers to do in Hidden in the Gospel. To gain clarity on the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to practice consistent self-talk based upon that Gospel would transform the lives of Christians, their homes, and their churches.
Whoever thought that “back-chat” could be good? In the form that Bill Farley describes it, this kind of back-talk is not only good, it is essential for growth and health in the Christian life. Every Christian benefits from consistent and regular reminders of what God has done for us in Christ. Yet what this involves is reflection upon some of the most glorious teachings of Scripture that span from eternity past to eternity future. Such is the breadth of the gospel, and such is the opportunity for Christians to have their minds and hearts transformed by the gospel’s power. Those who read this book will enter into this gospel breadth with the hope and promise of greater love for God and longing to live in the fullness of the gospel.
“Bill Farley continues his valuable contributions to gospel-centered living with Hidden in the Gospel. While others have mentioned the importance of preaching to ourselves, Bill shows us how to do so. His practical unpacking of the primary theological components of a ‘wide-angle’ understanding of the biblical gospel is just what we need to keep our self-talk grounded in God’s redemptive work in Christ. I am confident this book will be useful to all believers, whether for individual study or in a group setting.”

    The Implications of the Gospel

    The implications of the Good News of the Gospel are colossal! Followers of Jesus believe a profound and life-changing truth of what He has accomplished. Every morning when I wake up, my first thoughts are not centered around the Cosmic King Jesus who is ruling over the universe, and the effect this should have on my soul. My first thoughts are usually dreading the drudgeries of my day.

    If it is true (and it is) that the Eternal Son of God became a man, fulfilled God's law, died to propitiate for my sins, rose victorious over the grave, ascended to rule and intercede for me, and has promised to return one day and establish His eternal kingdom well let's just say these facts should have an effect on the state of my soul day in and day out.

    These glorious truths of the gospel can for me, sadly, be easy to forget. I need to remember the Gospel, I need to preach it to myself. Bill Farley has done a wonderful job of teaching how to proclaim the many wonderful facets of the Gospel to weary pilgrims on their way to the New Jerusalem. Rejoice in what Christ has accomplished for you in His life, death and resurrection. Rejoice that the Triune God has set his affections on you since eternity past! That is Good News!

    Do your soul a favor and pick up this book!

    "I have discovered the benefit on continually preaching the gospel to myself. It has melted the fog of depression, repulsed the demons of despair, and displaced feelings of unworthiness and failure with the love of God. When I have been discouraged, it has motivated me to keep plodding. It has humbled me before the wonder of God's glorious grace. It has encouraged me to love God and others. It has prompted me to be patient with the failings of others. I has urged me to forgive seventy time seven." - William Farley
