(CLICK HERE TO BUY) WHAT IS THE GOSPEL? by Greg Gilbert
What is the gospel? It seems like a simple question, yet it has been known to incite some heated responses, even in the church. How are we to formulate a clear, biblical understanding of the gospel? Tradition, reason, and experience all leave us ultimately disappointed. If we want answers, we must turn to the Word of God. Greg Gilbert does so in What Is the Gospel? Beginning with Paul's systematic presentation of the gospel in Romans and moving through the sermons in Acts, Gilbert argues that the central structure of the gospel consists of four main subjects: God, man, Christ, and a response. The book carefully examines each and then explores the effects the gospel can have in individuals, churches, and the world. Both Christian and non-Christian readers will gain a clearer understanding of the gospel in this valuable resource.
(CLICK HERE TO BUY) STOP ASKING JESUS INTO YOUR HEART by JD Greear
Author and pastor J.D. Greear has thought a lot about his salvation. He prayed the sinner's prayer when he was four years old, and over the course of his young adulthood was baptized four times. However, he didn't feel sure of his salvation in Christ, and obsesssively sought for the peace that assurance would bring him. Along the way, he discovered many other Christians who felt the same insecurity about their faith, and realized that this doubt was a trend for many believers. In Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart, Greear takes a closer look at what the Bible says to bring clarity to believers and skeptics seeking answers to common questions about faith and salvation, such as How do we know we are saved? and Can we lose our faith and salvation in Christ? His answers will give assurance to the anxious and issue a challenge to those who may have become complacent. Discover how confessing Jesus as Savior and Lord is only the beginning of a challenging, yet remarkable and worthwhile life journey.

(CLICK HERE TO BUY) THE GOSPEL'S POWER AND MESSAGE by Paul Washer
One of the greatest crimes of this generation of Christians is our neglect of the gospel, and it is from this neglect that all our other maladies spring forth. Absent from too many pulpits are essential themes that make up the very core of the gospel-the justice of God, the radical depravity of man, and the blood atonement. In the Gospel's power and Message, Paul Washer addresses these essential elements of Christ's good news and provides a guide to help us rediscover the gospel in all its beauty, scandal, and saving power. May such a rediscovery transform your life, strengthen your proclamation, and bring the greatest glory to God.
(CLICK HERE TO BUY) THE GOSPEL CALL AND TRUE CONVERSION by Paul Washer
According to Washer, many people today have reduced the gospel message to a few trite statements and view conversion as a mere human decision. Challenging such "easy believism," he examines the real meaning of faith, repentance, and receiving Christ; and deals extensively with the effects of the saving grace that God promises in the new covenant.
(CLICK HERE TO BUY) GOSPEL ASSURANCE AND WARNINGS by Paul Washer
It should come as no surprise that misunderstandings about the gospel message and the nature of true conversion result in a problem with genuine assurance of salvation. A pseudo-gospel of "easy believism" has led many into careless presumption, and a poor understanding of salvation has abandoned tender consciences to near spiritual despair. In Gospel Assurance and Warnings, Paul Washer shines the light of gospel hope as he cautions against the dangers of making an empty profession of faith and carefully explains from Scripture the basis for establishing and maintaining a sound assurance of faith.
