Mr. Chantry uses the gospel story of the rich young ruler and his encounter with Jesus Christ as an example of how to preach the gospel.
"psalm"
After reading this book, the gospel of Christ, will most surely become far richer and God honoring than you have ever understood the teaching before.
Donald
Modern evangelism has twisted the Gospel like the cults and Satan himself who use verses and half-truths from the Bible to deceive its listeners.

If you are not satisfied with much of today's so-called evangelism, but you can't quite put your finger on what's wrong with it, this book is for you. Much of today's evangelism has nothing to do with the preaching of the gospel, but focuses on unity at any expense. Mr. Chantry uses the gospel story of the rich young ruler and his encounter with Jesus Christ as an example of how to preach the gospel. He stresses the need for us to stick to the Master's way of handling lost individuals, not to popular but misleading methods (he even cites a few of the most common appeals to men's hearts as bad examples). This is life and death stuff! Jesus lets the "fish" get away, but we think by outdoing the Fisherman we can get more converts, says Chantry. Time is we followed the Teacher's methods and stop trying to win the crowds with no gospel at all. Try it out, you will see some real converts! Oh, and by the way, you may see some real persecution by the false church, too. God bless. Chris

Pastor Chantry writes with a concern that addresses many of the the shallow and careless evangelistic methodologies that are still widely prevalent today. While evangelistic zeal for the lost is essential,zeal which is according to knowledge is equally important. The book highlights in places the great danger and harm that can be caused by misplaced zeal. He uses the Lord Jesus' personal evangelism with the rich young ruler because that contains all the essential elements for gospel preaching and evangelistic witnessing that should be present if our zeal is to be united with Biblical knowledge. Who better to instruct us on how to evangelize than the Lord Jesus Himself. A few of the essential elements are: preaching the law of God,preaching the character of God and preaching the necesstiy of true repentance. When preaching on the character of God the preacher is seeking to make known the attributes of God,and thereby exalt His character. Pastor Chantry thus exposes one of the great weaknesses in so much preaching and evangelism today,that being, that it is man centered when it should and must be God centered. Why is modern day evangelism and missionary labours so impotent? Walter Chantry asks in the introduction: Where is the power of Edwards and Whitfield in today's preaching? The author thinks that it is in the content of the Gospel message. Mr.Chantry writes on p.36 "The absence of God's Holy law from modern preaching is perhaps as responsible as any other factor for the evangelistic impotence of our Churches and missions." Men,women and children must know that they are lost before they can truly be saved and the preaching of God's Holy law is the means that God has ordained to bring about conviction of sin. Romans 3:20b ...for by the law is the knoledge of sin.'Today's Gospel...' will help to expose much of what is lacking in so many pulpits and many evangelistic endeavours,may the Lord be pleased to use it to that end for many years to come.

Format: Paperback
Books, like music, often return us to a place in the mind's eye, where they most impressed and moved our hearts and lives. If you have always wondered what has been missing in your Christian walk of faith, this little, inexpensive "CLASSIC" just might be one of those powerful memories that will flood your soul when you look back on the refreshing time you first read it. I believe; TODAY'S GOSPEL: Authentic or Synthetic? will become a "Christian Classic" because of its watershed message in history. Our modern gospel and methods have proven to be lacking, to say the least. The witness of the evening news within our towns, cities, and culture in which we live is the fruit of Today's Gospel.
The rethinking of the "Authentic" gospel is the reason that we must "START HERE" no matter what our denominations or how long we have been Christians. Pastor Chantry unfolds before you, the Lord Jesus as gospel teacher, a full orbed teacher "...were you called, Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that we should follow his steps." Chantry presents Christ the King and lover of doing; doing the will of God, "If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love. Even as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love."
TODAY'S GOSPEL, is about returning to, or remembering the age-old gospel of Christ and how we can know and do God's will, which is what gives our faith true meaning. You will enjoy Chantry's straightforward story form that details the meeting of the Lord Jesus with the Rich Young Ruler and their passionate interaction. This special little book is far more powerful and " Re-Creating" (2 Corinthians 5:17-21) than anything our modern, "Easy-Believism," formulas have to offer.

I have received tremendous encouragement from reading Mr. Chantry's book. It offers a convicting message relevant to those who are considering a relationship with Jesus Christ and those like myself who have been in such a relationship for many years. Mr. Chantry performs an excellent work in analyzing the Lord's encounter with the rich young ruler and sets it as a benchmark for effective evangelism. I hope those who read this will give serious consideration to reading the book. I believe you will consider it to be time well spent.
