Book Summary of The Gospel-Driven Life by Michael Horton


The American church has done many great things for the glory of God, but in recent decades there has been a shift away from being gospel-centered. The gospel has been altered to make mankind more central and God more peripheral. It has made our wishes, whims, and wants the goal. It has made God and Jesus a means to an end rather than an end to themselves.

The Gospel-Driven Life seeks to reorient Christians to a gospel-driven life by revealing what the Bible presents as the overarching story of God and humanity. It uses the analogy of a newspaper to present the shift back to biblically accurate faith.

It discusses the relationship of God to mankind and explores the big theological concepts of justification, sanctification, and glorification. It reasons from biblical teachings what role we play in God’s story, where He is the focus and that we get to eternally experience His goodness through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ and the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.
