Too few people attending church today, even those in evangelical churches, are exposed to the gospel explicitly. Sure, many will hear about Jesus, and about being good and avoiding bad, but the gospel message simply isn't there--at least not in its specificity and its fullness. Inspired by the needs of both the overchurched and the unchurched, and bolstered by the common neglect of the explicit gospel within Christianity, Matt Chandler has written this punchy treatise. He begins with the specifics of the gospel--outlining what it is and what it is not--and then switches gears to focus on the fullness of the gospel and its massive implications on both personal and cosmic levels. Recognizing our tendency to fixate on either the micro or macro aspects of the gospel, Chandler also warns us of the dangers on either side--of becoming overly individualistic or syncretistic. Here is a call to true Christianity, to know the gospel explicitly, and to unite the church on the amazing grounds of the good news of Jesus!

    " Loved it. A. It's a "book about the gospel", one of my favourite (and most desperately needed) reading categories -- I was encouraged and challenged, B. Matt Chandler has a great combination of being winsome and relaxed, but then getting out the sledgehammer/scalpel when the time comes, C. He addresses firstly "the gospel on the ground" (classic evangelical explanation from the point of view of an individual) and secondly "the gospel in the air" (biblical theology explanation from the point of view of all history) -- the two viewpoints complement each other really well, and the section at the back on dangers of ever emphasis either way is fantastic, D. Because it's his first book, it's a bit of a tour of all the things he's passionate about, so every now and then he invests a few pages in an unexpected topic, mostly stuff that's culturally relevant right now -- very helpful, and E. It has an awesome cover. "

    " Good book. Compares the Gospel from man's view (the author calls this the Gospel on the Ground) and then examines the Gospel from Gods view (the Gospel in the air). Book was good, had a greta opening section a weak middle section and a great conclusion. Examined what happens when we do not have a broad enough look at the gospel and what it means to live it out. (sharing it and showing it) Makes great points about certain heresies, particularly antinomianism. Overall a good read just not the book I was expecting. "

    " Matt Chandler is easily my favorite preacher, an I listen to a lot of them. I pre-ordered this book four months before it came out, and was not disappointed. I have always appreciated Chandler's willingness to step back and evaluate things from a variety of perspectives before narrowing back in on a precise truth. This book articulated more thoroughly many of the life and ministry topics I have heard him touch on in his preaching. "
