From the Back Cover
Could the gospel be lost amongst evangelical Christians? In this book, J.D. Greear shows how moralism and legalism have often eclipsed the gospel, even in conservative Christianity. Gospel cuts through the superficiality of religion and reacquaints readers with the revolutionary truth of God’s gracious acceptance of sinners in Christ. The gospel is the power of God, and the only true source of joy, freedom, radical generosity, and audacious faith. The gospel produces in believers what religion never could: a heart that desires God.
At the core of the book is the “gospel prayer,” which is a powerful way to sat- urate oneself in the gospel daily. Dwelling on the gospel will release new depths of passion for God and lead to new heights of obedience. Gospel gives you an applicable, exciting vision of how God brings His healing to the world.
“J.D. is clear on the gospel, humble and humorous . . . If you want to be missional and faithful, reaching out while holding fast, this book will encourage you.”
—Mark Dever, author, Nine Marks of a Healthy Church Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church
“I am grateful to God for my friend J.D. Greear and his call to plant our lives and churches solidly in the soil of the gospel. This book will help you rest daily in God’s great grace as you live continually for God’s great glory.”
—David Platt, New York Times best-selling author of Radical Senior Pastor, The Church at Brook Hills
J.D. Greear is lead pastor of The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, recognized as one of the fastest-growing churches in North America. He holds a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also lived and worked among Muslims in Southeast Asia for two years and wrote Breaking the Islam Code. J.D. and his wife have four children.

While we are exhorted to grow in grace, knowledge and holiness, as well as maintaining good works in our lives, this book shows that HOW we do those things is vital. All these efforts of ours must be from our enjoying our security in the unconditional love of God, and our full and complete acceptance by him in the finished work of Christ.
I have been groping for the understanding of this truth for many years now, and this book has helped clarify and solidify these concepts in my heart. Wish there were more than 5 stars to give.
My only gripe is that the title "Gospel" makes the book difficult to refer to in conversation. If I ask someone if they have read the Gospel, they think I'm refering to Matthew, Mark, Luke or John, not Greear. Greear's not quite up to canonical status yet, but its still a good book!
