The Explicit Gospel (Paperback Edition) (Re:Lit)
Matt Chandler

Crossway, 2014

You know you know it… But then again, maybe you don’t. Even if you go to church, it doesn’t mean that you are being exposed to the gospel explicitly .

Inspired by the needs of both the over-churched and the unchurched, and bolstered by the common neglect of the ...

The Gospel and Personal Evangelism (9Marks)
Mark Dever
