Full Product Description
‘Gospel’ is a revolutionary book that aims to put the gospel back into the heart of the Church.
The gospel was all the early church talked about, the gospel toppled an empire and the gospel was the central message of a revolutionary leader that began our revolutionary movement – so let’s reclaim it.
J.D. Greear, American author and pastor, questions whether the Evangelical Church has misplaced the gospel? Having lost sight of the gospel, the church has concerned itself with cultural, moral, and legal issues in society. Greear’s clears the religious, superficial fog and cuts the legal tape to reintroduce the simplicity and importance of the gospel.
Greear has split his message into three clear sections:
1. How the Gospel Does What Religion Cannot:
Discover why and how religion can never do what the gospel does: change your heart. With this clear and understandable foundation, you’ll be ready to become gospel-focused.
2. The Gospel Prayer:
This is the main section of the book, encouraging you to practice ‘The Gospel Prayer’ daily. In saturating yourself in the scripture and ‘praying’ the gospel, you will release a deeper relationship with God.
3. Towards a Gospel-Centred Understanding of Life:
Guiding you towards what a Gospel-Centred church looks like, offering practical advice.
The gospel is the power of God, and this book will help you to reclaim, regain and reinvigorate that power in your life.

The book's core is a "gospel prayer" by which you can saturate yourself in the gospel daily. Dwelling on the gospel will release in you new depths of passion for God and take you to new heights of obedience to Him. Gospel gives you an applicable, exciting vision of how God will use you to bring His healing to the world.
“J.D. is clear on the gospel, humble and humorous. He’s written a book that’s good for the Christian lacking assurance, the Christian tempted to legalism, the Christian tempted to guilt, the Christian tempted to selfishness. If you want to be missional and faithful, reaching out while holding fast, this book will encourage you.” — Mark Dever, senior pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church and author of Nine Marks of a Healthy Church.
“My fellow pastor, J.D. Greear, through his book, has helped us in this quest for gospel-saturated living. He takes the principles of gospel centrality and shows us how to orient our lives around it. I appreciate how in refreshing and real ways he makes the gospel accessible to others so that they can experience its transforming power. I especially like the book’s practical section on gospel prayer as a way to assist us in rehearsing these truths deep into our hearts and minds. Whether you are exploring Christianity for the first time or are longing to ‘look into these things’ again and again, let me invite you to spend time with this helpful book.” — Timothy Keller, senior pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church and author of The Reason for God.
“Radical obedience to the person of Christ can only spring from reckless trust in the sufficiency of Christ. I am grateful to God for my friend J.D. Greear and his call to plant our lives and churches solidly in the soil of the gospel. This book will help you rest daily in God’s great grace as you live continually for God’s great glory.” — David Platt, senior pastor, The Church at Brook Hills and author of Radical.
“J.D. Greear is one of the greatest men of God I know. And one of the most brilliant. His ability to ommunicate the gospel in a fresh yet faithful way perfectly positions him to speak the life-giving message of Jesus into you in a way that you have never experienced. And in a way that will change your life forever.” — Steven Furtick, lead pastor, Elevation Church and author of Sun Stand Still.
