Christianity doesn't work as just a moral philosophy or code of ethics. It makes sense only when it is built upon the foundation of the gospel, the Good News.

Overview

Christianity doesn't work as just a moral philosophy or code of ethics. It makes sense only when it is built upon the foundation of the gospel, the Good News. The simple message that God has done everything he requires to reconcile sinners to himself is not just the church's slogan, but its lifeblood.

In this candid and hopeful book, Michael Horton challenges us to reorient our faith and our practice toward the transformative, Christ-centered gospel---both in the church and in the world.
