Publisher's Summary

This newest addition to the IX Marks series presents a clear, straightforward statement of the gospel, the third mark of a healthy church. What is the gospel? It seems like a simple question, yet it has been known to incite some heated responses, even in the church. How are we to formulate a clear, biblical understanding of the gospel? Tradition, reason, and experience all leave us ultimately disappointed. If we want answers, we must turn to the Word of God. Greg Gilbert does so in What Is the Gospel? Beginning with Paul's systematic presentation of the gospel in Romans and moving through the sermons in Acts, Gilbert argues that the central structure of the gospel consists of four main subjects: God, man, Christ, and a response. The book carefully examines each and then explores the effects the gospel can have in individuals, churches, and the world. Both Christian and non-Christian readers will gain a clearer understanding of the gospel in this valuable resource.

Calvinism at its finest...aka back loaded works

I do not recommend this book. Definitely not for new believers who cannot discern false teachings. This author teaches points from Calvinism and strays from the true gospel which is: we are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone! No amount of works can save us, keep us saved, or prove we are saved! This book teaches works and fruit prove you’re saved which is FALSE. Don’t waste your time listening to it.

Spot on

Recommend this book to Christians as well as unbelievers. Christians need to understand better what the gospel REALLY is and tell others about it the way God designed.

If you only ever read one book besides the Bible make it this one

Yes, that headline is not an exaggeration. The gospel is so confused today - as a seminary student, it’s easy to get caught up in the depths of theology and lose clarity on what’s essential and what’s not. As a new Christian or an uneducated churchman, it’s easy to confuse the gospel with other things too. There is no more important thing than to know the gospel. I believe I will be rereading this book at least every year.

As a lifelong Christian, I have read deeper, more illuminating, and more worldview shifting books. But I have never read a more important one. Did I know 98% of what Greg says in this book already? Yes. Did I need to hear it with the freshness and clarity in which he wrote it? 1000 times yes. You may listen on double speed since it’s familiar territory- but you should read and reread this book. Nothing is more important than being rooted in the gospel

Excellent Understandable Exploration

This is an excellent dive into the gospel of Jesus Christ. what it is, what it is not, and how to understand it.

even with its depth it is very understandable yet thought provoking and challenging. excellent read for any curious about the gospel or want to get a good foundation of what it is and how it works!

Hm...

Of course the content was solid- there was a lot of scripture but it was just a painful read. After listening to the book about 5-6 times, I'm still not sure the author answered his own question- "What is the Gospel". The one point I will remember is the question of why the angel who visited Cornelius didn't just tell him the story of the gospel. Why involve Peter? The answer was good, the point was great. This question alone, will make me listen to the book for a 7th time, God help me!
