Format: Kindle Edition
One of the most exciting developments in the Twenty-first century has been the development of the Gospel Coalition. The Gospel Coalition provides blogs, audio and video resources, books, provides conferences, and a plethora of various helps for believers and churches that desire to be gospel centered and gospel driven.

In this brief introduction to the whats and whys of the Gospel Coalition - Tim Keller and D.A. Carson have written a wonderful primer of why this organization was established, and what makes it tick. It's really an amazing phenomenon that has brought together pastors, missionaries, and lay workers from many different non-denominational and denominational evangelical churches and ministries.

The common denominator that makes up the Gospel Coalition is a biblically robust view that the Gospel from Genesis to Revelation is the central theme of the Bible and that all ministry endeavors are to be bathed in Gospel waters. The gospel is focuses on the necessity of the new birth, justification by faith alone, atonement through propitiation, the substitutionary death of Christ on the cross, and His resurrection from the dead. However, it's more than that. The gospel is more than what's tacked on at the end of the sermon, or a devotional that's shared once a month before we partake of the Lord's Supper.

Carson and Keller contend that all of ministry must operate from and lead to, and everything in-between is saturated by the Gospel. For example, in our preaching, they write, "Expository preaching fails if it does not tie every text, even the most discursive, into the great story of the gospel and mission of Jesus Christ.

Read this to understand the gospel coalition and there underlying philosophy of ministry. I think this is the way to avoid harmful ecumenism while at the same time preserving unity for the work of the gospel and the kingdom of God.

These pages are very strongly worded in the Evangelical Christian teaching and the Authors have gone to great pains to explain their thoughts to resolve problems facing Church congregations throughout the world in these end times.
It's very encouraging to see Unity in Christ our Lord prevail and I like their approach very much

This is a simple direct statement of the reasons the TGC was crated and exists. I read this to get an understandingly what those associated withTGC believe and are proponents of. Bi wild recommend this book to those who have heard of TGC but maybe are unsure why it was formed or continues to exist.
