Outlines three core elements of the Gospel: story (embedded in biblical narrative), announcement (what must I do to be saved?), and community (living in faithfulness to Christ's calling as outcome of obeying the Gospel), along with assorted watered down and counterfeit gospels, including "therapeutic, judgmentless, moralistic, quietist (privatized), activist, (and) churchless" pseudo-gospels.

What if the biggest danger to the church of Jesus Christ is not blatant heresy, the moral failures of church leaders, persecution, the rise of Islam or the loss of our rights? What if the biggest threat is counterfeit gospels within the church, ways of thinking and speaking about the good news that lead to a gradual drift from the truth of Scripture?

The gospel is like a three-legged stool. There’s the Gospel Story – the grand narrative of Scripture (Creation, Fall, Redemption, Restoration). Within that overarching framework, we make the Gospel Announcement about Jesus Christ (His perfect life, substitutionary death, resurrection, exaltation). The gospel announcement then births the Gospel Community: God’s church – the embodiment of the gospel, the manifestation of God’s kingdom. A counterfeit gospel is like a colony of termites, eating away at one of the legs of this stool until the whole thing topples over. This book exposes six common counterfeits (Therapeutic, Judgmentless, Moralist, Quietist, Activist, and Churchless) that would get us off track.

The goal of Counterfeit Gospels is to so deepen our love for the unchanging gospel of Jesus Christ that we would easily see through the many counterfeits that leave us impoverished. So come, love the gospel, recognize and overcome the counterfeits, and be empowered for ministry!

It took me awhile to finish this book, but not b/c it wasn't good, but b/c there was so much truth and depth in it, that it took me awhile to take it all in.

This is an excellent reference book, though it isn't solely that. I was drawn to it when I read a blog post of Trevin Wax. He is a young guy, and despite his youth (!) he has the wisdom of the old :-)

In this book, Wax describes in depth the various counterfeit messages in the world that pass as The Gospel. The counterfeits are rampant, insidious and persistent. I've seen them rear their heads in several churches I've been in, and unfortunately, many naive and devout Christians unwittingly fall prey to these pseudo-gospels.

I highly recommend this book to pastors, deacons, ministry workers, youth leaders, new Christians, veteran Christians and even kids (my 13 yr old daughter snagged it and is reading it now!) It helps clarify what the true Gospel is and the various distortions that exist. ( )

"Don't confuse the gospel with the effects of the Gospel." writes Keven Wax. Elsewhere he notes that, "…Christianity is not a scheme of morality, nor a plan for social and political change, and organizations which propose improvements along such lines are only 'tinkering with the problems. We may be made better men, but before we can face God we must be new men." So many churches today don't believe that the Gospel, as given in God's Word, is right for today. They think that it needs to be updated to fit our culture. Wax does a good job of analyzing the various counterfeit gospels of our day: the Therapeutic Gospel, the Activist Gospel, the Churchless Gospel…etc. he shows how many of these take one fact of the Gospel and preach it, mostly disembodied from the other essential truths that make up the Gospel. These people are, 'missing the mark' of the complete Gospel', which description, ironically, is one of the definitions of sin.

"Christians and non-Christians are often drawn to counterfeit gospels. Even those of us who have walked with the Lord for many years may be inclined to accept cheap imitations of the truth. Why? Because they are easy. They cost us less." And one might add, "they build up our church attendance". A small section , in the chapter on the "Churchless Gospel", caught my interest in particular. What is discussed is the idea of some Christians who think that we should model ourselves on the practices of the early churches as the early churches would have obviously been more pure, more godly than ours. To these people Wax poses the question, "Which early church do you want to be like? Corinth? The church took pride in a man's incestuous relationship. Meanwhile, the worship gatherings were not being done decently and in order. Galatia? Paul was shocked to see that his church so quickly abandoned the gospel…"

I didn't like the reformed/amillennial bent of the book, the sacraments, true Israel…etc. are brought up. This is also evident where Christ is talked about, speaking of evangelizing, "Just talk about Jesus!......Jesus is not merely a means to an end, such as 'heaven,' 'a purposeful life,' or 'peace through trials.' Jesus is the end." What about God the Father? Christ has reconciled us to the Father, we have "access by one Sprit unto the Father, " - Ephesians 2:16-19, "Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a anew and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil…"( Hebrews 10:19-22 NASB)See also, "Heb. 7:25, 2:10. Also, I did not particularly care for all of the movie references in the book, they seemed out of place, quite unnecessary.

But I do like the book overall. It is an interesting overview and critique of the futile attempts to improve the perfect Gospel revealed in God's Word. And now, to wrap this up, as usual, I'll end with one last quote from the book, "We must make clear that grace accepts us where we are, but that it never leaves us there."

Thanks to Moody Publishers for sending me a free review copy of this book! (My review did not have to be favorable)

Overall, I loved the book. Clearly there are multiple, even good intentioned, forms of the Gospel that do not represent that Gospel correctly. I was, however, disappointed in a few places where I felt Wax used a very superficial view of the message some proclaim. This allowed him to label their message counterfeit without really looking at the whole of the message. Choosing one or two comments out of the whole of their context, makes any assumption possible and any assessment dubious. ( )
