Contemporary evangelicals have built a ‘salvation culture’ but not a ‘gospel culture.’ Evangelicals have reduced the gospel to the message of personal salvation. This book makes a plea for us to recover the old gospel as that which is still new and still fresh. The book stands on four arguments: that the gospel is defined by the apostles in 1 Corinthians 15 as the completion of the Story of Israel in the saving Story of Jesus; that the gospel is found in the Four Gospels; that the gospel was preached by Jesus; and that the sermons in the Book of Acts are the best example of gospeling in the New Testament. In the Beginning was the Gospel ends with practical suggestions about evangelism and about building a gospel culture.

    " Challenges the evangelical view of personal salvation. Great read. "

    " This book blew my mind, and has caused me to rethink much of what I thought I understood about what Gospel is, and isn't. Critics will pick apart McKnight's positions, mainly because it pushes back against a Gospel paradigm that has become almost exclusively soteriological in nature. However, I found his premise to be well thought out, and well presented, with an abundance of Scripture reference and foundation. I have been spurred by this book to begin to question the Western philosophical approach that much of today's post-Reformation exegesis seems to be rooted in and to return to a closer look at the immediate context of the Gospel as it was declared by Jesus, and His followers. It certainly is thought-provoking reading. "

    " What a paradigm shift. McKnight has always challenges me to think outside of the box when reading Scripture. This book is no different. From its critique of soterianism to its reframing of the gospel into terms of the story of Israel and its completion in Jesus, this has changed my way of looking at the Bible and yet answered so many questions and reservations about past learning. Every serious Bible reader should read this book. "

    " Good book. If you are familiar at all with Wright's writing you may find yourself wanting to get through this quickly. It's strength is in it's accessibility. It is an important book, well laid out and very accessible to those not familiar with the past/current work being done in this field. "
