A GUIDEBOOK ON DEFINING, SHARING, AND OBEYING THE GOSPEL
King Jesus is supplying lifeblood. But our insufficient grasp of the gospel is a dangerous blockage. If a heart ailment is treated haphazardly, death follows. People are hurting. Churches are confused. The gospel vaguely wont suffice. We need clarity, simplicity, and truth--the gospel precisely.
But followers of Jesus should beware of harmful imitations. The real gospel in its healing fullness--the one taught by Jesus and his apostles--is the one found in the Bible.
Award-winning author Matthew Bates shows that the gospel is about King Jesus. It is about the cross and resurrection--yet surprisingly much more. Find yourself empowered for discipleship and prepared to share the gospel effectively. Includes resources for personal reflection and group discussion.
This book takes the best of Batess previous work and makes it even more accessible. Bravo!
-- Scot X. McKnight, Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary
Christians talk about preaching, presenting, and living the gospel, but we urgently need more precision. Matthew Bates has done the church a service by giving us accessible guidance.
-- Jonathan Storment, author of How to Start a Riot
The Gospel Precisely delivers biblical depth at the grassroots level with a healthy helping of practical pastoral coaching.
-- Mark E. Moore, author of Core 52
