When did the Good News become just good advice?
We live in a self-help world. But 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 Christian practice toward the transformative, Christ-centered gospel--both in the church and in the world.
"Mike Horton has once again hit the nail on the head. With engaging clarity he demonstrates that the gospel is not just for non-Christians; it's for Christians too. Horton's book is a flavorsome reminder that in order for Christians to make a difference in this world, we must be driven by something otherworldly--namely, the gospel."--Tullian Tchividjian, pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and author of Unfashionable
"Michael Horton is one who understands the time. More than a fad, a twelve-step program, or a forty-day challenge, Horton reminds us that the gospel is the everyday brick and mortar of a life built on the promise of eternal life in Jesus Christ. Before you read another book, read this one."--Anthony Carter, lead pastor of East Point Church, East Point, Georgia, and author of On Being Black and Reformed

If the news is big enough, it can change your world.
Think of the news stories that have rocked our nation. Men on the moon. Victory in war. Celebrity deaths. These are nothing compared to the magnitude of the news of what God did in Jesus Christ.
Distinguished from all religions and philosophies of life, the Christian faith is, at its heart, "good news." The church originates, flourishes, and fulfills its mission as that part of God's world that has been redeemed and redefined by this strange announcement that seems foolish and powerless to the rest of the world.
This book explores the greatest story ever told and the surprising ways in which God is at work, gathering a people for his feast in a fast-food world.
