The gospel of Jesus Christ is not one theory of the world's origin and purpose standing behind or alongside other competing viewpoints. Neither is it one of many components of the Christian religion. It is the central purpose, heartbeat, and jewel of the entire universe. It is the power of God Almighty. It is the set of glasses we must wear to rightly understand all of God's Word and all of God's world. Whether we acknowledge it or not, Jesus Christ is the Lord, Savior, and Treasure.
This gospel of Jesus Christ is God's grace for individuals, and God's grace for all of creation. John Kuyper Liberty explains from Scripture that the gospel transforms how we understand and relate to God and his revelation (upward theology), how we understand and relate to ourselves and other Christians (inward theology), and how we understand and relate to God's broader creation, our communities, our cultures, and those who are not Christians (outward theology). This monumental resource written for all people includes chapter titles like The Good News of God's Word, Gospel Worship, Gospel Joy, The Gospel and Money, The Gospel-Centered Home, The Gospel and Work, and Gospel Society. Jesus Christ, by his perfect life, bloody cross, resurrection in power, and ascension into Kingship, is reconciling all things to himself.
