The greatest gift of the gospel is God himself. Often lost in the gospel message and the daily lives of Christians is that the greatest gift of the gospel is that the God of the universe becomes our own. In the eBook God is the Gospel: Meditations on God's Love as the Gift of Himself, John Piper reclaims the gospel as the great and loving gift of God Himself. Piper battles the concept of the gospel as enhancing personal self-worth, not as God giving Himself to humanity. In contrast, Piper illustrates the lasting, eternal joy of Christ to those who really see and practice God as the Gospel.
John Piper, Pastor for Preaching and Vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, since 1980, is a respected theologian and author. He is the author of over 30 books, of which more than two million copies have sold.
