“It is easy to sound prophetic from the margins; what we urgently need is to be prophetic from the centre”

Despite its centrality to the Christian faith, it’s easy to overlook the gospel and instead speak out on more peripheral issues. This is a far cry from the New Testament emphasis on the gospel as the foundation of everything we believe.

In this passionate cry for gospel reform, D. A. Carson argues that if secondary issues consume our passions, then we’re in danger of sidelining the gospel. We may be able to make compelling arguments for how we should live, but if these are not rooted in the gospel then we aren’t speaking God’s truth.

Carson shows us that if the gospel is centralized, prioritized, and pondered, it powerfully directs us on how to think about everything else. In fact, the best way to speak God’s truth on secondary issues is to stand firm on the gospel.

This book is brilliantly simple and simply brilliant. It is a crystal clear exposition of the gospel and its implications, much needed in an age of swelling definitions and blurring boundaries.
