Gospel is a word we often hear. But what does it mean? This book looks at gospels in the ancient world, and seeks to understand Jesus' gospel and the proclamation of the first Christians. The gospel is the instrument God uses to save lives; fuzzy thinking can be dangerous. The author argues that Jesus' gospel defines a new reality, requiring a new response in human behaviour. It is truly revolutionary.


David Seccombe led George Whitefield College (GWC) in Cape Town, South Africa through the post- apartheid years of political transition, to becoming a significant theological centre for the African continent. He studied at Moore Theological College in Sydney, Australia, and holds a PhD from Cambridge University, England. With his wife, Lorraine, children and grandchildren he lives in Perth, Western Australia, and continues to serve as Roving Ambassador for GWC.
