Contemporary evangelicals have built a 'salvation culture' but not a 'gospel culture.' Evangelicals have reduced the gospel to the message of personal salvation. This book makes a plea for us to recover the old gospel as that which is still new and still fresh. The book stands on four arguments: that the gospel is defined by the apostles in 1 Corinthians 15 as the completion of the Story of Israel in the saving Story of Jesus; that the gospel is found in the Four Gospels; that the gospel was preached by Jesus; and that the sermons in the Book of Acts are the best example of gospeling in the New Testament. In the Beginning was the Gospel ends with practical suggestions about evangelism and about building a gospel culture.

The Gospel is About Jesus

Brings Clarity to Important Issues
Scot, whether you agree with him or not, brings so much clarity to some of the biggest issues of our day, and gives the underlying ideas very helpful names and frames the arguments clearly. I love his style, and I love that even people he disagrees with are given a fair treatment, and are treated generously.
He obviously knows his material, and refers to much longer works that he's written on some of the subjects that he covers, but he tends to stay above the academic jargon and make it easy enough to understand.
I've recommended it to many people as a must read. You'll be glad you did.
