Free Kindle Book: What is the Gospel?

For this month only Amazon is giving away free Kindle editions of Greg Gilbert’s book, What is the Gospel?

Here are some reviews of the book:

“Greg Gilbert is one of the brightest and most faithful young men called to serve the church today. Here he offers us a penetrating, faithful, and fully biblical understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is no greater need than to know the true gospel, to recognize the counterfeits, and to set loose a generation of gospel-centered Christians. This very important book arrives at just the right moment.”
R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Two realities make this a critically important book: the centrality of the gospel in all generations and the confusion about the gospel in our own generation.What Is the Gospel? provides a biblically faithful explanation of the gospel and equips Christians to discern deviations from that glorious message. How I wish I could place this book in the hands of every pastor and church member.”
C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace Ministries

“Greg Gilbert contends that the current evangelical understanding of the gospel is lost in a fog of confusion. He burns away that fog by shining fresh light on an old subject. Gilbert writes in a clear, concise, and colloquial style that will especially appeal to young adults. What Is the Gospel? will sharpen your thinking about the gospel, etching it more deeply on your heart so you can share the good news of Jesus Christ with boldness. It will leave you pondering the extent to which the gospel has impacted your own life. It will cause you to cry out with thankfulness to God for what Christ has accomplished.”
James MacDonald, Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel, Chicagoland Area; radio teacher, Walk in the Word

“A wonderful telling of the old, old story in fresh words—and with sound warnings against subtle misrepresentations. As the old gospel song attests, and as is true of Greg Gilbert’s fine book, those who know the old, old story best will find themselves hungering and thirsting to hear this story like the rest.”
Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary

“Greg Gilbert is someone I have had the honor and privilege of teaching and who is now teaching me. This little book on the gospel is one of the clearest and most important books I’ve read in recent years.”
Mark Dever, Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington DC; President, 9Marks

  1. Hey Joe,
    Are you familiar with Peter Kreeft? I’ve been reading his “Socrates meets ___” books lately. I thought you might get a kick out of them as well.

    • I am familiar with Kreeft. He’s a very sharp thinker. I’ve only read one of his books, and own another. He’s very creative at comparing and contrasting opposing view points. Which have you read?

  2. Socrates meets Marx, and Socrates meets Sartre. I found them at a used bookstore in Jacksonville.

  3. “There is no greater need than to know the true gospel, to recognize the counterfeits, and to set loose a generation of gospel-centered Christians. This very important book arrives at just the right moment.” Truer words were never uttered.
