The Gospel According to Paul: Embracing the Good News at the Heart of Paul’s Teaching

John MacArthur. Nelson, $24.99 (256p) ISBN 978-1-4002-0349-9
In his usual straightforward, pastoral, and clear style, best-selling author MacArthur (The Gospel According to Jesus) plunges deeply into Paul’s letters to make a very simple point: there is only one true gospel that Jesus preached, and Paul did not depart from Jesus’s teaching in any way. MacArthur recounts Paul’s biography—dogmatic Jewish teacher, persecutor of early Christians, convert to Christianity, staunch evangelist for the Christian faith—and then carefully lays out the gospel according to Paul. As he deftly illustrates, Paul’s gospel preaches the key elements of Jesus’s message: all are guilty of sin and seek to find a way out of that condition; the only path out of sin is through accepting by faith alone that Christ alone offers salvation for sins and reconciliation with God; the grace of atonement—reconciliation of God through Christ—emboldens us to live in hope and love. MacArthur’s distinct and perceptive book offers an accessible exposition of sometimes challenging theological concepts. (Apr.)
