Why does it matter that we actually teach the Bible in the context of the gospel story? Maybe a better question is can we do this? Does a “gospel-centered” approach distort the meaning of the Scriptures, or does it allow us to see what God intended more clearly?
Brian Dembowczyk, one of my teammates from The Gospel Project and author of Gospel-Centered Kids Ministry, discuss this and more in part one of the most explicitly Christian episode of Reading Writers ever.
The books mentioned on this episode:
- Gospel-Centered Kids Ministry
- The Gospel by Ray Ortlund, Jr. (reviewed here)
- Gospel by JD Greear
- The Explicit Gospel by Matt Chandler with Jared Wilson (reviewed here)
