Publisher's Description

It s not about what we can do for Jesus, or what he can do for us, but what he has already done.


The gospel of moralistic therapeutic deism is running rampant in the church. In an interview with Mark Galli, theologian Michael Horton says we are tempted to live a Christless Christianity because we are human-centered rather than God-centered. The gospel is not a matter of doing the right things or trying harder. Horton says, The gospel isn t Follow Jesus example or Transform your life or How to raise good children. The gospel is: Jesus Christ came to save sinners even bad parents, even lousy followers of Jesus, which we all are on our best days.
