Overview

While many around the world study and further pursue the discovery of the so-called lost gospels, New Testament professor Darrell L. Bock believes the real lost gospel is the one already found in the Bible. Believing that the church has become cloudy on the purpose 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 emphasizes that the gospel is good news. Readers are invited on this mission of rediscovery to reclaim a message that has much to offer.
