Recommendation of the Week (4/3/16)

The Explicit Gospel
Chandler, Matt and Jared Wilson

ROTW 4-3-16 SM

One of the dangers we face in evangelical-ish America is the assumption of the gospel. We say the word "Gospel" over and over and over until it sounds strange and unfamiliar. Don Carson say a number of times:

“Losing the gospel doesn’t happen all at once, it’s much more like a four generation process:

The gospel is accepted —>
The gospel is assumed —>
The gospel is confused —>
The gospel is lost.”

This book is a full frontal assault to gospel assumption. David Platt's endorsement of the book is, "I wholeheartedly invite you to read this book and then to spend your life making this gospel explicit in every facet of your life and to every corner of the earth." Or, as we say at Redeemer Church until "all of life is redeemed."

Grace & Peace
