The Gospel Primer is a book that many have been waiting for. It isn't merely a book about the gospel, telling you what it is, but it is a book that opens up the heart and gives the "why" of the gospel so that you can work out the "how" of the gospel.

This book is quite different than most you will see. It is laid out like it's "sister books" (Tangible Kingdom and Barefoot Church Primers) by having the reader work this out with a community in an 8 week time period.

Each week is broken down day by day:

Day 1: Exploration: This is the day that gives you information on the concepts that will be worked out for the week. This exploration really hits the "head" to challenge you and where you currently are at. Even here, it isn't all about information, but questions to aid you in the understanding

Day 2: Meditation: Focuses on a few scripture verses/passages for the reader to be soaked in. Then questions to aid the reader in applying.

Day 3: Change: Focuses on how the exploration and meditation should change your life. What would your life look like if this change happened? etc. This is the development of the heart phase of understanding a concept to how it now is changing your deep understanding of your soul. Where the heart is affected, real change can happen.

Day 4: Action: As your heart is changed, you should start crying out, "what should I do with this?" Action day puts into practice (the hands and feet) the heart change you are experiencing.

Day 5: Community: This part is beautiful. For too long we've lived out a "personal walk with Jesus" instead of living it out in community.

The Best group study I have led! This was a life transforming/ course altering 8 weeks. I have had the privilege of leading 2 groups through this over the last year and have seen God use it to change lives and direction. I personally have a new view on my life, world and mission. Every week I was reminded of the power of the Gospel, I was challenged with a new way to think and view my world and I had to do something with it. YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS WITH AT LEAST ONE OTHER PERSON. This is not a personal study book, but a book to be lived out in community. A valuable resource to help our group get on mission together in the Gospel! Thanks Caesar!

This was such a HUGE part of helping our Missional Community grow in gospel fluency and action. I found the toughest part was getting outside of my own comfort zones to trust the Spirit in stepping out of myself to act on the things this book presents, even more challenging was doing it together as a missional community.

A WARNING:

1. Don't get this UNLESS you plan to go through it with at least one other person.
2. Don't get this if you would rather talk about the gospel rather than live it.
3. Don't get this if you if you want to stay comfortably churchy without growing to be comfortably (in the Spirit) missional.

We are using this book for a small group Bible study...now in our fourth week, and we all find it very interesting, deep, and fascinating. I'm anxious to see how it all turns out! I certainly would recommend it for any group, regardless of the maturity of faith!

This book, like making disciples, is best experienced in community. Working through this book as a community will lead you to grow deeper in your understanding of who God is, what he has done through Christ and who we are (as well as what we get to do now). Such a great experience, I can't recommend this book highly enough.

This isn't a book to just sit down and read - it's a book to work through each day over the course of eight weeks. Caesar Kalinowski does an excellent job of giving you a little gospel nugget to think through and reflect on each day. You'll find yourself drawing closer to God and growing in desire to show others what he's like. In short, you and your community will be equipped to make disciples who make disciples. Buy a copy for each of your friends. Work through it together and go make disciples!

We've had a couple groups go through it already. It was helpful for both new and more mature Christians. The author did a masterful job breaking down big ideas into manageable pieces. We covered a lot of ground but it never felt overwhelming. Loved how the book teaches but then also provides challenging, thought provoking questions to guide the reader deeper into how it relates to them. The book also encourages reaching out to others in very natural ways to share the good news. We're big fans and look forward to going through it again and again with new people. Thank you!

This book is one of the best tools to engage your faith community in the gospel. We've used this to help our church planting team understand more fully how the gospel story relates to each of our stories. It is informing the way we share this incredible news of redemption and restoration.

Really works well in our small group. I do struggle with the implementation of some concepts but usually small group or even our pastor makes everything clearer.
