Scot McKnight: The Original Good News Revisited

The King Jesus Gospel:
The Original Good News Revisited
By Scot McKnight (Zondervan)

“Scot McKnight touches on something that many know—American Christian culture has become fascinated more with the number of decisions made through the outreach or youth camp than in actually cranking out mature, reproducing followers of Jesus Christ. Not pulling any punches, McKnight writes, ‘One more point: focusing youth events, retreats, and programs on persuading people to make a decision disarms the Gospel, distorts numbers, and diminishes the significance of discipleship.’ As you read, you will be surprised and overwhelmed to discover that McKnight presents the Gospel as so much more than just being justified by faith through the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. McKnight’s viewpoint runs counter to how many evangelicals have been taught and trained, but this book is nonetheless important and deserves a fair reading.” —Bryan Loritts, from the March/April 2012 issue of Outreach magazine
