Overview

While many scholars around the world study and further pursue the discovery of so-called lost gospels, New Testament professor Darrell L. Bock believes the real lost gospel is the one already found in the Bible.
"Recovering the Real Lost Gospel is written with the conviction that the church has become cloudy on the purpose of the gospel," he explains. "It is in many ways a biblical theology of the gospel."
Bock traces key themes and texts from Scripture to answer the central question: What does the Bible say about the gospel? His response throughout clearly emphasizes that the gospel is good news and based on a restored relationship with God. Readers are invited on this mission of rediscovery to reclaim a message that has much to offer all people in a needy world.
