Publisher's Description

Rick Warren famously wrote, It's not about you. But much of the Western church seems to disagree, having settled for a self-centered message of personal fulfillment. With incisiveness and a passionate love for the church, pastor and author Byron Forrest Yawn offers a compelling call away from narcissism and back to the powerful and transforming gospel of Jesus. He shows the difference between

  • Sunday-morning life coaches selling self-help seminars, and preachers proclaiming God's redemptive work through Christ
  • promises of prosperity and comfort, and a realistic and helpful perspective on suffering
  • escape from unbelievers and their godless world, and redemptive engagement with people

As Byron exposes the false gospel of suburbianity, he offers readers a better alternative: to look beyond themselves and embrace God's call to be His image-bearers and ambassadors, partnering with Him as He restores people and all creation to His original design.

    Have we lost the gospel?

    Along with Byron Yawn, I believe the answer is yes.

    When walking through the Christian bookstore, it is almost impossible to find a book about the gospel. I see books about marriage, weight lose, relationships, but very few about Christ and Him crucified.

    Byron Yawn's book is about this very subject. Much of today's Church has lost the Gospel. We have turned our services into self-help seminars. Everything is about me. Even books written to tell us it is not about you, go on to tell us it IS about you.

    Every sermon is about 10 ways to have a better life, marriage, family, etc.

    We have also sold out the Gospel for Marketing schemes. Most choices in church are centered around - "What can we do to get more people?" We take our cue from Forbes or Time magazine.

    Yawn's book is excellent! He hits us right where it hurts but he doesn't leave us there. He explains where we went wrong and how to fix it. The Gospel is not how can my life be better. It is what Jesus did on the cross.

    We think the drunk or drug addict are the people who need the Gospel. In reality, the man in the business suit needs it just as bad. All have sinned! The Gospel is for everyone!

    If we have all have sinned, then we all need a savior. We all deserve punishment in Hell. The good news is someone took that punishment for us and we are free.

    I really liked this book and highly recommend it.

    I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

    *I received this book, free of charge, from Harvest House Publishers and Netgallery in exchange for an honest review.
