I am excited to receive my copy of What is the Gospel? by Anthony Carter, published by East Point Books, the resource arm of East Point Church. It was my privilege to hear the sermon from which much of the book is derived. This is my endorsement for the book:

What is the Gospel? is a simple yet brilliant and impassioned explanation of the most important message ever given to man.  Carter is right: The Gospel is about a Person in the plan of God to which every person must respond. This is a great little book!

“What is the Gospel?” has become a common title to recent books, including ones by Bryan Chapell and Greg Gilbert. It is extremely important that we clarify this message for fellow believers and for the world. I am glad Carter is adding his voice of clarity.

If you have not considered the message of the Gospel, whether or not a person named Jesus Christ is a historical figure, or the implications of what his death and life means for you, please also consider reading a copy of Carter’s book. I am going to grab copies to give to several college students.
