Part of The Contemporary Christian Series

John Stott’s bestselling volume, The Contemporary Christian: An Urgent Plea for Double Listening, updated and presented for today’s audience

What is the authentic gospel? How do we answer the sceptics?

Christianity is not a religion, but God’s good news for the world. This implies that it has both a divine origin and a human relevance: it comes from God and it speaks to our
condition.

So, before we ask, ‘What is the gospel?’, we need to ask, ‘What is a human being?’

* Chapter 1: The human paradox looks at what the Bible teaches and what our experience endorses: the glory and shame of our humanness, both our dignity as creatures made in God’s image and our depravity as sinners under his judgement.
* Chapter 2: Human freedom: what is traditionally called ‘salvation’, seen in terms of ‘authentic freedom’.
* Chapters 3 and 4: The central themes of the death and resurrection of Jesus, securing our freedom. This section also looks at a number of objections and denials.
* Chapter 5: The far-reaching implications, both for faith and for life.

Radical indeed is the discipleship which takes all of this and Christ’s lordship seriously. It’s nothing short of a life-changing message.

DOWNLOADING INFORMATION

Our audiobooks download as zipped files (due to their size and for your convenience). Once unzipped you will find all of the mp3 files for your audiobook named, and in correct file order.  Due to the way Apple has designed iOS, iPhones and iPads don’t recognise these zip files automatically (unlike Android devices).  So, if you buy one of our titles via your iPhone or iPad, there are two ways to find and listen to your files:

[1] Download for FREE iZip for iOS – then download the audiobook using the link provided either on the webpage or the email we sent you. After the file has downloaded click on the Open With option and choose iZip. The app will open and ask if you want it to unzip all the files, say yes. A minute or so later you will have a list of mp3 files in order, and you just need to tap on the one you want to play and it will start playing in the Audioplayer. You can easily play, pause, jump forward or back.

[2] Slightly easier – download the zip file to your PC or MAC, unzip it to a folder you know the location of (such as your Music or Documents folder), then use iTunes to transfer the files in the same way you would a music album.

We hope you enjoy your audiobook and come back for more soon!
