Publisher's Summary

Is faith in Jesus enough for salvation? Perhaps, says Matthew Bates, but we're missing pieces of the gospel. The biblical gospel can never change. Yet our understanding of the gospel must change. The church needs an allegiance shift. 

Popular pastoral resources on the gospel are causing widespread confusion. Bates shows that the biblical gospel is different, fuller, and more beautiful than we have been led to believe. He explains that saving faith doesn't come through trust in Jesus' death on the cross alone but through allegiance to Christ the king. There is only one true gospel and one required response: allegiance. 

Bates ignited conversation with his successful and influential book Salvation by Allegiance Alone. Here, he goes deeper while making his acclaimed teaching on salvation more accessible and experiential for believers who want to better understand and share the gospel. Gospel Allegiance includes a guide for further conversation, making it ideal for church groups, pastors, leaders, and students.

Excellent Examination of the Gospel

Our me-centric culture can't get out of our own heads, or stop staring at our own belly-buttons. But we think we've got the Gospel down. Matthew Bates brings us to the feet of Jesus and Paul to stop staring at our phones long enough to consider that we might be missing something. Bates doesn't pull any punches when it comes to preaching the Gospel. His clear and concise style help the reader (or listener) understand the difference between the Gospel that the Evangelical-Industrial Complex has manufactured in the past 50 years and the true Gospel bound up in scripture.

I can't recommend this book enough, the audio version was well done!
