Make Disciples not just Decisions

This is from the book description on Amazon.com for The King Jesus Gospel: The Original Good News Revisited by Scot McKnight:
"Contemporary evangelicals have built a 'salvation culture' but not a 'gospel culture.' Evangelicals have reduced the gospel to the message of personal salvation. This book makes a plea for us to recover the old gospel as that which is still new and still fresh."
I haven't read the book, but it sounds interesting.  The individualist American culture tends to focus on self to a fault.  Our idea of the "Gospel" seems very self-centered about personal salvation and eternal life compared to what I read in the Bible.  If anyone has read this book by Scot McKnight and has comments, I'd be interested in hearing them. I'm considering buying it.
