Publisher's Summary

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.

A Culture to be Desired

I could not think of anything I disliked about this book. It is essential that Christianity becomes a living culture again in line with the story of the whole Bible and this book tells the story of the Good News as told by the first Church, a story that needs to be relearned by the Church today and retold over again. This book will get you fired up. I have listened to it three times over.

An important book

The modern church is in dyer need to return to the full gospel. Too long we have been losing relevance by trying to be relevant. The gospel of salvation only really makes sense in the context of the story of Israel and the promised seed- the anointed son of David- the Christ.

This book hi lights the importance and relevance of the full gospel and in so doing makes the salvation gospel more believable.

Prophecy should not be separated from the gospel.
