The first edition of The Gospel According to Jesus won wide acclaim in confronting the “easy-believism” that has characterized some aspects of evangelical Christianity. Over the past 50 years, a handful of books have become true classics, revered world-wide for their crystal-clear presentation of the Gospel and lauded for their contribution to the Christian faith. These extraordinary books are read, re-read, and discussed in churches, Bible study groups, and homes everywhere. John MacArthur’s The Gospel According to Jesus is one of those books.

In The Gospel According to Jesus, MacArthur tackles the idea of “easy believism,” challenging Christians to re-evaluate their commitment to Christ by examining their fruits. MacArthur asks, “What does it really mean to be saved?” He urges readers to understand that their conversion was more than a mere point in time, that, by definition, it includes a lifetime of obediently walking with Jesus as Lord.

This 20th anniversary edition of MacArthur’s provocative, Scripture-based book contains one new chapter and is further revised to provide Christians in the 21st century a fresh perspective on the intrinsic relationship between faith and works, clearly revealing Why Jesus is both Savior and Lord to all who believe.

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andy Kline | 10/28/2013

    " The author attempts to address some legitimate issues by creating a theology that mixes faith and works. Unfortunate. MacArthur has some great books, but this is not one of them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James B | 10/18/2013

    " Excellent book, very fundamental on the teaching of Jesus... Mr. John MacArthur is indeed a great teacher, easy to understand yet does not take away any essence of the gospel!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristopher | 9/20/2013

    " one of the best books i've ever read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 9/26/2012

    " Very concise read about Lordship Salvation. A must for anyone wishing to understand the gospel! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah McCarragher | 8/28/2012

    " Time to get real with God and the church... "

    " This book was published when i was born, and it's great!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dominic | 3/5/2012

    " What did Jesus really mean when he said, "Follow me?" According to John MacArthur, understood correctly, the gospel is an invitation to slavery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 2/27/2012

    " Great book. One of the first ones I read as a Christian. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas Booher | 7/11/2011

    " The first book I read on the gospel after becoming a Calvinist. I do not agree with everything that is said but most of it is excellent and Macarthur's defense of Lordship salvation is excellent and much needed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jp | 6/30/2011

    " This is a great book. If you have not read it or have not read it in a long time, take the time to work through it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 10/12/2010

    " It was decent but I disagree with MacArthur more than normal in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom Griffiths | 5/9/2010

    " Agree with the book, which is a must read for all. We are all called to submit to Christ, to repentance and obedience. How does one suppose to worship Jesus as Lord and creator God if we do not submit to Him as King of all and us as willing slaves. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 3/21/2010

    " Very good book! Christ can not only be your savior, he must be your Lord too! "
