In God is the Gospel Piper passionately argues that the good news of the gospel is that we are given the greatest gift imaginable: God himself.
Too often we reduce the gospel to being a free ticket to heaven or a key to spiritual blessings. What we forget is that the Gospel story is about God himself, and not about the rewards he will bestow on those who have come to know Jesus Christ. The good news of Jesus Christ is deeper, more profound, and more wonderful than we realize.
Standing in a long tradition of theologians who have made similar observations including Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Edwards, and others, Piper unpacks the gospel to show that none of Christ's gospel deeds and none of our gospel blessings are good news except as a means of exalting the glory of Christ.
Biblically faithful and radically God-centered, this book leads to satisfaction for the deep hungers of the soul. The glorious truth that God is the gospel touches us at the root of life where practical transformation gets its daily power. It awakens our longing for Christ and opens our eyes to his beauty. Join Piper as he leads us to worship and treasure Christ, the ultimate gift of the gospel. Now available in paperback.
