God's Good News

Dr. Greg Bahnsen, noted Apologist, Postmillennialist, and author of Theonomy in Christian Ethics, passed away in 1995. Sometime before he passed away I found this little booklet by him, God’s Good News. We had Dr. Bahnsen speak at our church, the St. Paul Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Ms., the year of his death. As we visited one of the things I asked him was if he minded if I used and even “tweaked” his booklet a bit. He graciously told me I could use it any way I wished.

God’s Good News is no “Gospel in a nutshell.” (You might call it “The Gospel in a Coconut Shell!”) “There are many ways in which we might summarize the gospel,” he states in his Introduction. Some, he noted, are short and simple enough for a child to understand. “On the other hand some further detail will prove beneficial in elaborating on this brief account of God’s good news.” That’s what this booklet is, a detailed elaboration of God’s good news. It’s no “Romans Road of Salvation;” it’s more of a “Calvin’s Road of Salvation!”
