What Is The Gospel?
We recently came across a wonderful book that all Christians should read to understand the one true gospel. In our opinion, it should be mandatory reading for all new Christians! That’s how impressed we were with this book.
Here’s what the back of the book says, “You’ve already noticed the title of this book: Face to Face With the Real Gospel. Real gospel? Wouldn’t that imply a false gospel—a counterfeit? If the gospel is the good news of how God saves us, it should only be expected that the great enemy, Satan, would do all he could to create a counterfeit. And so he has—and does. Writing to the Galatians, Paul the apostle spoke of “another” gospel. And in every age, the same tired old satanic counterfeits continue to echo from pupils, books, and even from lofty ivory towers of higher learning.”
The back of the book continues, “In this brief but seminal book, author Dennis Priebe lifts the fog that so often surrounds the good news. He deals with the obvious—with the biblical, and with the truth as Jesus and His apostles taught it. For example, if the gospel is about how God saves us from sin, the author writes, it’s vital then that we understand what sin is! Is sin part of our nature? Is it a function of our will—our choice? The answer to how we define sin in turn answers a host of other questions that follow: Is it possible to overcome sin? If so, to what extent? Is Jesus our Example as well as our Savior? If so, what kind of human nature did He have? Can we overcome sin in the same way He did? In a sea of counterfeit gospels, like a lighthouse high atop a storm-lashed rock, this book champions the one true and real gospel!”
As mentioned above, the book is called, “Face to Face with the Real Gospel” by Dennis Priebe and is available from Amazing Facts Ministry for $5.95.
The book is short and easy to read. You don’t have to be a theologian or advanced Bible student to understand the concepts in this book. But, if you don’t like to read, you can watch his online sermons which covers everything in the book.
He has several sermons that cover the main topics within this book, the definition of sin, the nature of Christ, Justification and Sanctification, and biblical perfection. We’ll post one video here, but you can watch several others that are already posted on our Bible Study page.
You can also access Dennis Priebe’s bible study lessons for free at his website, www.dennispriebe.com. They cover the same topics. You can also purchase his sermons at his website on CD and in MP3 format, and his sermons on DVD.
Understanding the one true gospel as taught by the apostles has been eye opening and has greatly improved our personal Bible study. Understanding the truth has opened up many verses in the Bible that used to be vague or confusing, but armed with the truth those same verses have now come alive and make sense. We hope you have the same experience and that this will encourage you to continue to read and study your Bible.
