The first question one must ask is: Why read another book on the Apostle Paul? This is what I asked myself when I agreed to review THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO PAUL by John MacArthur. My answer was: it is written by John MacArthur and I respect his writings.

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO PAUL is a type of survey of the teachings of the Apostle. In writing this book the author presents the basis of Christianity, there really is no other way to say it. What is important about this book is: it serves as a reality check for those who profess to be Christians.

The book is easy to read and only 134 pages not counting the Appendix which brings it to 190. The Appendix is just as an important a read as the body of the book. I was intrigued by the discussions found in the Appendix particularly “Redefining Atonement” page 141; Appendix 1 “In Defense of Substitutionary Atonement.” THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO PAUL proves that you do not need a thousand page book to present information.

This book, THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO PAUL, is a necessary read and not like other books I have read or skimmed through. If you were going to purchase a book about the Apostle Paul this is the one. It is a very informative read thus I recommend it.  — written by Marsha L F Randolph
