This newest addition to the IX Marks series presents a clear, straightforward statement of the gospel, the third mark of a healthy church. What is the gospel? It seems like a simple question, yet it has been known to incite some heated responses, even in the church. How are we to formulate a clear, biblical understanding of the gospel? Tradition, reason, and experience all leave us ultimately disappointed. If we want answers, we must turn to the Word of God. Greg Gilbert does so in What Is the Gospel? Beginning with Paul's systematic presentation of the gospel in Romans and moving through the sermons in Acts, Gilbert argues that the central structure of the gospel consists of four main subjects: God, man, Christ, and a response. The book carefully examines each and then explores the effects the gospel can have in individuals, churches, and the world. Both Christian and non-Christian readers will gain a clearer understanding of the gospel in this valuable resource.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chad Barnes | 2/20/2014

    " Excellent, excellent! This book is published by IX Marks, the ministry of Mark Dever, pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC, and written by the associate pastor at Capitol Hill Baptist Church. At 121 pages, "What Is The Gospel" is a great read for the unbeliever who wants an introduction to the Gospel (i.e., what it is, what it is NOT, how it affects those who believe it, etc.) as it is presented in Scripture, and for the believer (whether young or mature in the faith) who wants a sweet reminder of what the Gospel is and to be led to the throne for worship. It's a very readable book (i.e., not overly technical language), and, in my opinion, is appropriate for everyone junior high and above, and would make a perfect "gift" book for high school or college graduates, for use in evangelistic efforts, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Butch | 2/17/2014

    " Really good short book on the essential elements of the gospel as distinguished from some popular errors in modern evangelicalism. Short, too the point, and inspirational. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 2/17/2014

    " A must read for every Christian! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lillie | 2/1/2014

    " A succinct explanation of the Gospel focusing on the substitutionary atonement. In a time when many churches focus on social justice and other "gospels," many Christians need to be reminded that the heart of the Gospel is the cross. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carl Hesler | 1/15/2014

    " I enjoyed this very much. However, I thought it should have been clearer (even though it was clear). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron Choi | 1/13/2014

    " Concise and clear summary of the Gospel following the God-Man-Christ-Response grid, followed by a clarification of the Kingdom of God. A good summation of basic Gospel truths. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lanny | 1/7/2014

    " I liked it a lot except I disagreed with Gilbert's eschatology. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wintimra | 12/25/2013

    " Loved it! Led 15 women through this book, it stirred up new & old believers. Clear, simple explanation of the gospel. I highly recommend this little book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 11/15/2013

    " Gilbert has a talent of providing a clear and concise yet simple presentation of the Gospel. Every church and Christian should have a few as evangelistic tools in their library. Also a nice reminder for the mature Christian of how profound but simple the Truth is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 10/11/2013

    " God. Man. Christ. Response. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon Barnes | 9/30/2013

    " Short and to the point. A great book for nominal Christians and non-Christians, but equally good as a reminder for long time Christians that may have thought they could 'move past' the Gospel. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mathieu | 9/29/2013

    " This is a bad book in my opinion. This is a very too narrow view of the Gospel. It reduces the Gospel to the forgiving of sins only. The new covenant provides more than this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric Durso | 8/25/2013

    " Read it. Give it away. Clear, readable, and evangelistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bgordondavis | 5/6/2013

    " Concise, honest and valid for today. The word gospel is thrown around today so much it warrants a need for clarification in today's muddled world. This book does a good job of doing just that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ethan Sayler | 4/25/2013

    " A fantastic little book, introducing the reader to what the Gospel is (and what it's not). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen Buerger | 2/13/2013

    " A very clear explanation of the basic tenets of the gospel message: God/holiness, Man/Sin, Christ, Response. It is very short, so it doesn't go incredibly deep, but I thought it did a good job of helping clarify what the gospel is and what it isn't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Servinggod_85 Leonard | 11/15/2011

    " A truthful and concise description of the Gospel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alexis Neal | 8/6/2011

    " A clear and straightforward presentation of the gospel. The writing is competent but not mind-blowing; but then, with a book like this it's not about the writing anyway: it's about the message. And the message--the gospel--is awesome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josueraul Manriquez | 5/28/2011

    " This is definitely a must read. Very clear and precise explanation of the Gospel, which sadly many Christians today are unable to articulate, or simply do not have a good understanding of what the Gospel is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lawson Hembree | 1/2/2011

    " Short, sweet, and to-the-point explanation of what the Gospel is in an easy to remember format. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue Andersen | 12/14/2010

    " Short book, concise and straight forward explanation of the miracle that is the gospel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kingsley | 11/23/2010

    " A VERY short read, this covers the different ideas of what The Gospel is, and then looks at it biblically. It's a reminder of the centrality of the Cross and penal substitutionary atonement for salvation. Nothing ground breaking, but a nice reminder. Almost like an over length sermon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 11/7/2010

    " This book is inspiring. It sums up the great news of the gospel in glorious terms. His theology of he'll fire is traditionally wrong but otherwise the book is right on target. It was a surprisingly excellent book. "
