(Spanish) What Is the Gospel?
This very important book was given (free) to Argentine pastors and leaders participating in a country-wide evangelistic project by Sociedad Biblica Argentina. Project 1M aims to reach 1 million homes with the gospel.This book will help equip and inspire these leaders to accurately share and teach the gospel, not only for salvation, but for all the Christian life.
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.
Evangelical churches have experienced huge growth in Argentina in the last 30 years. Regrettably, the gospel has not been clearly expounded in all cases. Evangelism happens in the homes and through personal testimonies. But there is often an absence of the public exposition of the gospel. Not only unconverted people need to hear the gospel. Christians too, and urgently in this current church atmosphere. A man-centered focus and influence coming from psychology have affected pulpits.
Argentina’s population exceeds 40 million. The dominant religion is Roman Catholic (92%); Evangelicals represent about 9%. Argentina benefits from rich natural resources, a highly literate population, an export-oriented agricultural sector, and a diversified industrial base. It ranks 23rd in the world for GDP, yet 30% of its population is below the poverty line. (The World Fact Book; Operation World)
