Pastor Matt Chandler has written his book The Explicit Gospel & I am so looking forward to it landing in my kindle app on the 30th April. I have loved learning so much from listening to Matt through his podcasts and also some of his teaching videos like Philippians. So a book on the Gospel I am certain is going to be a great read.
Here is some of the blurb about it:
"Too few people attending church today, even those in evangelical churches, are exposed to the gospel explicitly. Sure, many will hear 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, Matt Chandler has written this punchy treatise. He begins with the specifics of the gospel—outlining what it is and what it is not—and then switches gears to focus on the fullness of the gospel and its massive implications on both personal and cosmic levels."
"Recognising our tendency to fixate on either the micro or macro aspects of the gospel, Chandler also warns us of the dangers on either side—of becoming overly individualistic or syncretistic. 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!"
Roll on 30th April!
