This entry into the series of Gospel Coalition Booklets seeks to answer what is perhaps the most fundamental question of all: what is the gospel? Chapell addresses this issue extremely well, especially considering the restrictions of the format (each book is only around 30 pages). The atonement, resurrection, and return of Christ are center stage. While Chapell necessarily paints in broad strokes, the minutiae are visible enough to allow the full picture to come into view.

This "pamphlet" of a book does a great a job at explaining the Gospel in a concise way using simple words and analogies, without going off on too many rabbit trails. I definitely recommend this for someone who doesn't know the Gospel or wants a refresher on the fundamentals of what Christians believe.

Very interesting booklets to read. Looking forward to read another TGC (The Gospel Coalition Booklets). It does give you the basic information that you need to know. Not quite in depth though from my point of view. It is very clear and easy to understand. If I were you, I would be using the Bible to see what the scripture reference that he post the reference for us to look up.

Chapel's booklet is very helpful, although I am admittedly a bit spoiled on the lengthier book with the same title written by Greg Gilbert. If relatively quick and to-the-point is what you're after, then Chapel's book is the way to go. If you don't mind more length, Gilbert's book is an easier read with much more helpful explanations of each point of the Gospel.

A great and concise booklet on what the Gospel is. It's only 30 pages so it was a very quick read.
