The Gospel According to JesusBook - 2010
Most Christians are living a distorted Christian life. You don't have to be one of them.
According to a recent survey conducted by Chris Seay and Barna Research Group, this is not just speculation; it's the reality for the church today.
The Gospel According to Jesus takes an in-depth look at this research study, which examines our understanding of the command, "Seek first the kingdom and His righteousness." Most Christians define righteousness as morality . This means that what's being preached by the church is not at all the gospel Jesus intended for His followers.
Through personal stories, interviews with today's church leaders, and a detailed study of the book of Romans, Chris uncovers a staggering disconnect between the gospel according to Christians and the gospel according to Jesus--the redeeming, restorative gospel that a broken world so desperately needs. Our role, he says, is to join Jesus in restoring the world. Will you?
