Book Review: The Gospel as Center (D.A. Carson & Tim Keller)

Committed to always keeping the Gospel of Christ at the center of everything–both our doctrine and our lives–The Gospel Coalition and Crossway publishing have joined together to release this book. Piecing through the Confessional Statement provided at the Gospel Coalition’s website (http://thegospelcoalition.org/about/foundation-documents/confessional/), TGC has previously provided 14 booklets to expand on these details. This book is a compilation of these booklets, expanded upon, and fleshed out in further detail.

This book served as a refreshing look at the core tenants of the Christian Faith (ranging in topic from “can we know truth” to “the holy spirit” and the grand themes of the bible in Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration). This book is an extremely necessary and faithful reminder to keeping the Gospel at the center of our lives and constantly as a focal point from which all other things flow.

I have been both encouraged and strengthened through the reading of this book, and I pray that it may continue impacting the faith and faithfulness of Christians who read it across the Earth.

In closing, the book brings to memory a quote uttered often by Pastor Tullian Tchividjian: “The Gospel is not the ABC’s of Christianity, it’s the A to Z.”

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes by Crossway Publishing. I was not required to post a positive review and the views expressed in this review are my own.
