Discovering The Glorious Gospel
The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the center of human history, the greatest story ever told, and the subject of angelic contemplation (I Peter 1:12). When proclaimed with biblical fidelity, it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes (Romans 1:16) and the great source and motivation of all true piety (I Timothy 3:16). When its message is distorted, it brings death to the hearers and the gravest of curses to the one who proclaims it (Galatians 1:6-9). For these reasons and many others, the Christian should consider his or her study of the gospel to be a primary and lifelong task. This workbook was designed and written with these things in mind.
The great goal of this study is for the student to have an encounter with God through His Word. Founded upon the conviction that the Scriptures are the inspired and infallible Word of God, this study has been designed in such a way that it is literally impossible for the student to advance without an open Bible before him or her. The goal is to help the reader obey the exhortation of the Apostle Paul in II Timothy 2:15: “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.” Each chapter deals with a specific aspect of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
