Response to Chalke

The Jesus Gospel: Recovering the Lost Message, a new book by Liam Goligher published in the UK, responds to the work of Steve Chalke.

A couple of endorsements:

Dr Liam Goligher’s enviable gifts as a communicator and his astute theological mind here combine in his new book, The Jesus Gospel. Its exposition of the Bible’s basic plot-line help us to answer a fundamental question on which Christians today are often confused – What is the Gospel of Jesus?’

Sinclair B Ferguson, Westminster Theological Seminary

‘Accurate, wide-ranging canonical exposition of Scripture at a non-technical level here displays salvation through penal substitutionary atonement as central to the message of the Bible as a whole and to Christ’s own understanding of his Father’s plan. Goligher covers this familiar ground in a gloriously head-clearing, heart-warming way.’

J I Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College
