The Explicit Gospel

Even if you go to church, it doesn't mean that you are being exposed (or exposing others) to the gospel explicitly. Sure, most people talk about Jesus, and about being good and avoiding bad, but the gospel message simply isn't there--at least not in its specificity and its fullness.

Inspired by the needs of both the overchurched and the unchurched, and bolstered by the common neglect of the explicit gospel within Christianity, popular pastor Matt Chandler writes this punchy treatise to remind us what is of first and utmost importance--the gospel.

Here is a call to true Christianity, to know the gospel explicitly, and to unite the church on the amazing grounds of the good news of Jesus!

Review: The Explicit Gospel

User Review  - Jason Carr - Goodreads

Excellent book focusing on the Gospel; not only the personal application of the work of the cross, but also the cosmic implications of the Gospel as Christ reconciles all things to Himself, and the application of the Gospel in the act of mortifying sin. Read full review
