Above is a promo for a book that I am finishing up titled “The King Jesus Gospel: the original good news revisited” by accomplished New Testament scholar Scot McKnight. McKnight critiques the modern gospel as being one preoccupied with making decisions rather than disciples which, in his words, “aborts the design of the gospel of Jesus.” I am reading through it once more preparing for a book review. In the meantime, what do you think of McKnight’s accusation that we have gotten the gospel wrong? That we have brushed past the “original good news” which needs a thorough “revisiting” by the church today? Are we really obsessed with decisions rather than disciples?
I enjoy writing music, recording, drumming, and reading up about the Bible and discipleship. I'm married to the absolute love of my life and am a father of two. I have a MDiv from Portland Seminary of George Fox with an emphasis in Biblical studies.
