Review: The Gospel According to Paul: Embracing the Good News at the Heart of Paul's Teachings by John MacArthur


About the book:
From Bible teacher John MacArthur, a revelatory exploration of what the apostle Paul actually taught about the Good News of Jesus.

The apostle Paul penned a number of very concise, focused passages in his letters to the early church that summarize the gospel message in just a few well-chosen words. Each of these key texts has a unique emphasis highlighting some essential aspect of the Good News of Jesus Christ. The chapters in this revelatory new book closely examine those vital gospel texts, one verse at a time.

John MacArthur, host of the popular media ministry Grace to You, tackles such questions as:

  • What is the gospel?
  • What are the essential elements of the message?
  • How can we be certain we have it right?
  • And how should Christians be proclaiming the Good News to the world?


As always, the answers John MacArthur gives are clear, compelling, well-reasoned, easy to grasp, and above all, thoroughly biblical. The Gospel According to Paul is written in a style that is easily accessible to lay people, including those who know very little about the Bible, while being of great value to seasoned pastors and experienced ministers.

The Gospel According to Paul is the third in a series of books on the gospel by John MacArthur including – The Gospel According to Jesus and The Gospel According to the Apostles. The Gospel According to Paul is also available in Spanish, Evangelio segĂșn Pablo.

My thoughts:

The Gospel According to Paul was a good read. I liked how it wasn't a light read and yet it was still easy to read and understand. The writing was great and I loved how there was a lot of scripture included throughout.

I haven't read a lot of MacArthur's books, but of what I've read The Gospel According to Paul is a favorite. There were quite a few powerful statements that I loved and a few I highlighted. I recommend this book if you are looking for a good nonfiction read.
