Ray Ortlund talks about his book The Gospel

How does the church portray the beauty of Christ? The gospel is a theological message. But this message also creates human beauty--beautiful relationships in our churches, making the glory of Christ visible in the world today. In this timely book, pastor Ray Ortlund makes the case that gospel doctrine creates a gospel culture. In too many of our churches, it is the beauty of a gospel culture that is the missing piece of the puzzle. But when the gospel is allowed to exert its full power, a church becomes radiant with the glory of Christ.


“Compelling. Convicting. Encouraging. Probing. And most of all, entrancing. What a beautiful vision of what the church can be through the power of the gospel.”
--Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Ortlund weaves together profound biblical reflection on how gospel doctrine must lead to gospel culture with choice quotations from great saints in church history. A must read for any church that wants to help rather than hinder the lost in being attracted to Christ.”
--Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary

“In this incisive book, Ortlund does the necessary and compelling work of connecting the life-giving gospel to the lived experience and witness of the church.”
--Stephen T. Um, Senior Minister, Citylife Presbyterian Church, Boston, Massachusetts
