Book Review

The Gospel According to Jesus by John MacArthur

This is probably the best book I have read which clearly and easily explains the Gospel as Jesus did. A true Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ, receives Him both as Lord and Savior.

The Book is separated into six parts:
  • Today's Gospel: Good News or Bad
  • Jesus Heralds His Gospel
  • Jesus Illustrates His Gospel
  • Jesus Explains His Gospel
  • Jesus Fulfills His Gospel
  • Appendixes
Parts two through five are explanation and commentary on specific things Jesus said and did during His ministry. This, of course, comes right from Scripture.

The appendixes contain brief information about what the Apostles did and said regarding the Gospel as well as the teaching from church history.

MacArthur ends the book with some answers to common questions people have about the Gospel.

Overall, this is a great book to read for anyone wanting a better understanding of what it means to truly follow Jesus Christ. It is good for the new Christian and the mature Christian.
