Luke Timothy Johnson is an outstanding Biblical scholar but also a writer with a rare gift of writing profoundly yet simply for a wide general audience. He is therefore a scholar in the mould of C. H. Dodd and William Barclay.

In this new book, Johnson examines certain key themes in the New Testament as they apply directly to the Church today. The Gospel is the central content of the Christian revelation, the glad tidings of redemption. Just as Christ's own teaching is a gospel, so Johnson's passionate concern in the pages of this new book is how this gospel can be preached and lived out today.
