The Therapeutic Gospel

By David Powlison | 9Marks Journal: The Gospel | 02.25.2010

In this new gospel, the great “evils” to be redressed do not call for any fundamental change of direction in the human hear

Brian McLaren and the Gospel of Here & Now

By Greg Gilbert | 9Marks Journal: The Gospel | 02.25.2010

For all his off-the-cuff casualness, McLaren is nothing if not deliberate. He has an agenda, and it’s to reset altogether the church’s understanding of the gospel.

Satanism, Starbucks, and Other Gospel Challengers

By David Wells | 9Marks Journal: The Gospel | 03.01.2010

What we should be doing, however, is looking at the culture—whether high or low—and asking the question, “At what points is this antithetical to the Word of God?”

Challenges to the Gospel

Leaving Home, Returning Home

By Michael Lawrence | 9Marks Journal: The Gospel | 04.02.2010

The consequences of Adam and Eve’s rebellion are even more profound than at first appeared.

How God’s Wrath Equals and Reveals God’s Worth

By Jonathan Leeman | 9Marks Journal: The Gospel | 02.25.2010

Wrath and worth are perfectly matched together. The former takes the measure of the latter and expresses itself accordingly. One is as precious as the other.

Book Review: The Nature of the Atonement: Four Views, ed. by James Beilby and Paul Eddy

Review by Greg Gilbert | 9Marks Journal: The Gospel | 03.05.2002

Book Review: Simply Christian, by N. T. Wright

Review by Andy Davis | 9Marks Journal: The Gospel | 03.05.2010

Most pointedly, I don’t believe this book tenderly and clearly warns individual sinners of their peril or calls upon them to flee to Christ as the only remedy for their sin before God.

Book Review: The Gospel According to Starbucks, by Leonard Sweet

Review by Brian Strider | 9Marks Journal: The Gospel | 03.05.2010

Pastors, please don’t model your church after Starbucks, Disney, or Toyota. Teach your flock what God has to say to the church.

Book Review: Soul Cravings: An Exploration of the Human Spirit, by Erwin McManus

Review by Jonathan Leeman | 9Marks Journal: The Gospel | 03.05.2010

This book leaves so much unsaid, to state it as charitably as I can, that what the person would gain from your book itself is not Christianity or the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Third Mark of a Healthy Church MEMBER: Gospel Saturated

By Thabiti Anyabwile | 9Marks Journal: The Gospel | 02.25.2010

So essential is the gospel to the Christian life that we need to be saturated in it in order to be healthy church members.

Gospel Meditations

Good Friday Meditation: A Fitting Crown

By Michael Lawrence | 9Marks Journal: The Gospel | 04.02.2010

In love, God decided that the story of thorns would end at the cross.
