Brief Description

The time has come for evangelical Christians to rethink their faith. Many of us grew up with a Christianity centered mostly on the teachings of Paul. If our churches studied a Gospel text it was almost invariably the Gospel of John. We may know much about being saved by faith, about the troubling issues within the Pauline churches, and about being born again, but have we explored the life and teachings of Jesus as portrayed in the Synoptic Gospels?

In The Good News According to Jesus, Chuck Queen contends that when we broaden our study of Jesus, the result is a richer, deeper, healthier, more relevant and holistic gospel, a Christianity that can transform this world into God’s new world. His book grapples with many questions that will inspire and challenge the reader:

  • What was the message and ministry of Jesus really about?
  • How should disciples of Jesus Christ relate to people of other religious faiths?
  • What are the dynamics of an authentic faith? What are the dynamics of grace and forgiveness?
  • What’s involved in living in God’s new world?
  • Must Jesus literally return to this earth?
