"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.
