"Many Christians think the gospel is only for unbelievers. Milton Vincent learned the hard way that we Christians also need the gospel every day to keep us from falling into a performance relationship with God. I share Milton’s enthusiasm for the gospel and warmly commend his ‘primer’ to all believers. It can literally be life changing."
- Jerry Bridges, author of The Discipline of Graceand The Gospel for Real Life
"As a pastor, I’ve observed many Christians who are grateful for the gospel but have difficulty applying the gospel to their lives. The truth is, I need to preach the gospel to myself every day-and you do too! In A Gospel Primer for Christians Milton Vincent has created a practical tool with a powerful effect. This book will help you understand the gospel more profoundly, reflect on the gospel more faithfully, and experience the power of the gospel more consistently."
- C.J. Mahaney, President, Sovereign Grace Ministries, and author of The Cross-Centered Life
"My good friend and fellow pastor, Milton Vincent, is utterly obsessed with the gospel of Jesus Christ. In A Gospel Primer for Christians, he demonstrates why believers–even though already having become the recipients of God’s saving love–ought nevertheless to be continually infatuated with this glorious reality. His capturing of the doctrine of salvation is unique in that virtually every section is explicitly footnoted to multiple Scriptural passages. Part III of the book, with the gospel shown in a beautiful poetic narrative, is alone worth the price of the book. I know of no other book quite like it, both in its approach and impact."
- Lance Quinn, Pastor-Teacher of The Bible Church of Little Rock, Little Rock, Arkansas
"Most Christians live on the porch of their faith without enjoying the mansion of delights behind the front door. In A Gospel Primer for Christians, Milton Vincent takes believers on an amazing tour of the gospel, showing how its familiar truths are actually its most overlooked treasures. This book will not only increase what you know about the gospel, but it will take what you know and helpfully show you what to do with it. This book has made me love the Savior more intimately, hate my sin more deeply, and find the joy that comes from gospel-produced holiness. Open its pages and enjoy the gospel’s mansion of delights!"
- Rick Holland, Senior Associate Pastor, Grace Community Church, and Director of D.Min. Studies at The Master’s Seminary
"There is no greater news than that Jesus came to die for our sins in order to bring us to God. This biblically saturated book will help you understand why that is such great news. Milton Vincent’s Gospel Primer for Christians is one of the rare books that helps us not only to know the Gospel, but also to love the Gospel and see how it applies to every area of our lives. I have used the prepublished version of this book in my devotions for years and I’m thrilled that more people are now able to benefit from it."
- Bob Kauflin, Director of Worship Development, Sovereign Grace Ministries
"The exhortation to 'preach the gospel to yourself' is a clarion call in a vacuous time within evangelicalism. But what does it mean to 'preach the Gospel to oneself' and how can one practically do it? Milton, who obviously meditates on it himself, elaborates on this privilege and grace in such a way that the Christian can revel in God’s grace and the person and work of Christ more intentionally. This book can help any Christian echo the words of the Baptist Preacher/Theologian Andrew Fuller who said in his diary, 'Compared with what I deserve to be, how happy my condition!'"
