What is the gospel? Throughout the history of American Evangelicalism, many have tried to reduce it to a simple slogan, or something like “four spiritual laws.” But in reducing the gospel of Christ to a sales pitch, have Evangelicals altered the message? Does the good news that we proclaim have more to do with getting people to make a decision, more than it focuses on Christ’s person and work?
Scott McKnight is one of my favorite dudes. He has encouraged me and has helped to clarify the definition and application of the Gospel of Jesus Christ again and again. Please read The King Jesus Gospel; it will help bring immense clarity!
