The Gospel According to the Apostles is a reprint of John MacArthur’s previous volume Faith Works. It is the companion volume to an earlier work, The Gospel According to Jesus (Zondervan). The set of two volumes is a complete treatment of what the entire NT says with regard to salvation. Dr. MacArthur rightly concludes that there is only one gospel, the one preached by Christ and by all of the apostles without deviation.

This volume is especially helpful in that it provides a very readable treatment of the subject which interacts with the contemporary discussion on “Lordship salvation” as it relates to the writings of the Fathers and a careful exposition of the entire NT. This book is must reading for anyone who takes the gospel seriously.
