This Month’s Resource Recommendation:
By David Platt
The author reaches us in a furtive manner that cannot be ignored: “The most urgent need is for the Gospel.” I appreciate that Platt uses Romans 10:14-17 as the basis for answering the fundamental question, must people believe the Gospel in order to be saved? Here is the answer we find:
Yet the offense of the gospel reaches its peak when you tell them that their eternal destiny is dependent on whether they believe the man hanging there is their God – the Lord, Judge, Savior and King of all creation. As soon as you say, ‘If you follow him, you will experience eternal life; if not, you will experience everlasting hell,’ you will find yourself across a line of utmost contention in contemporary culture (and in the contemporary church, for that matter).
The Gospel claims that eternity is at stake in how you and I respond to Jesus.
He goes on to describe the Fundamental Question: do you believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
This is a book about how to witness, how to be a part of God’s move in this day and age, and also a surprising peek into what America is experiencing in this day and time. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to every person in ministry.
Love in Christ,
