Could the gospel be lost in evangelical churches? In this book, J.D. Greear shows how moralism and legalism have often eclipsed the gospel, even in conservative churches. Gospel cuts through the superficiality of religion and reacquaints you with the revolutionary truth of God's gracious acceptance of us in Christ. The gospel is the power of God, and the only true source of joy, freedom, radical generosity, and audacious faith. The gospel produces in us what religion never could: a heart that desires God.
The book’s core is a “gospel prayer” by which you can saturate yourself in the gospel daily. Dwelling on the gospel will release in you new depths of passion for God and take you to new heights of obedience to Him. Gospel gives you an applicable, exciting vision of how God will use you to bring His healing to the world.

Looks like a great App, but . . .
I could give it another star if it had an in-app "help" function. I have this on both my iPhone and iPad. Bought the full book on the iPad, and assumed that when I synced, it would be on both devices. It does not appear to be, because when i try to open the book in my iPhone, it tells me I need to buy the book. This could not possibly be the case, could it? if it is, it seems a bit greedy and I will downgrade my rating. I am searching for help elsewhere. When I find the answer, I will report further.
Review of app, not the book
This app gives you the Forward, Introduction and the first chapter (and this is clearly stated in the description). Now I already have the book - that's why I searched for this app. Having links to buy the book or ebook were not a benefit to me. The majority of this app feels like one big advertisement. There are some quotes from the book and a link to a blog, but what I was really looking for was something to enhance the book - a study guide, questions, etc. It is no a major disappointment because the app is free, but I found it pretty useless. (again, I'm talking about the app not the book - I'm enjoying the book)
Would really benefit from a highlighter capability. Otherwise, just great to have the actual book along with the iPad app.
