The "Big Picture" of the Gospel

It has been a slow week with regard to blogging—what with sickness and all—but I'm slowly finding my way back to the computer.

Let me start tonight by recommending a good summary of the Gospel, written by Derrick Olliff.

We tend to make the Gospel into an individualistic matter, when the real point is that God, through the Gospel, is calling us to participate in his program of transforming all creation through the Lord Jesus Christ. We also divorce the Gospel message from its First Testament roots, turning it into a strictly personal transaction rather than part of a continuing story.

Olliff overturns these notions and gives a good overview of the full Gospel message.
