Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. Nineteenth century Baptist preacher Charles Spurgeon explains the centrality of the atonement to the Gospel. Excerpt: “The heart of the Gospel is redemption, and the essence of redemption is the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ. They who preach this truth preach the Gospel in whatever else they may be mistaken; but they who preach not the atonement, whatever else they declare, have missed the soul and substance of the divine message.”

The Heart of the Gospel
I’ve read myriad Charles Spurgeon quotes through my decades. I’m embarrassed to say this is the first Spurgeon book I’ve ever read, which is a crime having now rectified that state.
If you’ve not made time to read any of these ridiculously brief but DEEP writings, I highly suggest this particular piece! Strikes deep with these profound but essential TRUTHS:
1. Yeshua did not simply “take our sin upon Himself.”
HE BECAME SIN WHO KNEW NO SIN
2. When we embrace His Sacrifice, we are simply “made righteous.”
WE ARE MADE RIGHTEOUSNESS
The writing is not modern & you will learn a few new words. But it IS worth the meager effort, on an eternal level.
Great message on the Substitution of Christ! It is Motivating to love Christ and preach the Gospel!!!
