For many years J.D. Greear looked like the model Christian. In high school, he avoided rock music, dancing, and movies because he thought they would make him worldly. In college he learned that international missions was important, and went to 25 countries in 10 years to serve God and the poorest of the poor with his time and resources. And as a pastor he leads a large, growing church. But somewhere along the way, he actually began to hate God. His thoughts were filled with negative emotions, like jealousy and anger, and he saw God as demanding more and more, and never satisfied. Greear finally realized he had never allowed the truth of the Gospel to impact his heart.
Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary is Greear's manifesto to the world and the church exploring the beauty and power of grace-filled living. Greear also shares what he calls "The Gospel Prayer" a powerful way to saturate oneself daily with the core truths of the Gospel. Learn how to lay down your desire for a works-driven righteousness that always leaves you feeling empty, and embrace the full story of God's love and purpose for you.

This book can change your life...
Date:October 26, 2011
Actually this book shows how your relationship with Jesus Christ can change your life. It really gets to the heart of the matter and helps you understand what God wants of his children and what they can expect in return. This book is excellent for anyone struggling with their walk with Jesus, and/ or feeling like you do not have what it takes to be all that God has planned for your life. This book has helped me greatly as I struggle with guilt over past actions in my life, and feelings of not as good a Christian as I should be. If nothing else it will help you realize how important you are to Jesus and the price he paid to call you one of his own. I highly recomend this book to anyone who has been beaten down by all the rules and doctrine of traditional churches, it will enlighten you to see what God really wants from you. Thank You, JD, as you have helped change TJ's life by by helping me realize who I am in Jesus Christ.
