Summary

Contemporary evangelicals have built a "salvation culture" but not a "gospel culture." Evangelicals have reduced the gospel to the message of personal salvation. This book makes a plea for us to recover the old gospel as that which is still new and still fresh. The book stands on four arguments: that the gospel is defined by the apostles in 1 Corinthians 15 as the completion of the Story of Israel in the saving Story of Jesus; that the gospel is found in the Four Gospels; that the gospel was preached by Jesus; and that the sermons in the Book of Acts are the best example of gospeling in the New Testament. The King Jesus Gospel ends with practical suggestions about evangelism and about building a gospel culture.

    Molly Hatfield comes to Arizona Territory seeking stability and security. But living in Cactus Patch provides her with more than she ever dreamed of.  
    There is nothing Molly wouldnÆt do for her teenaged brother, Donny. Blaming herself for the accident that left him wheel-chair bound, Molly has dedicated her life to his care. But in 1896, gainful employment for a woman is hard to come by. So when Molly learns that an eccentric rancher in Cactus Patch, Arizona, is looking for an heiress--someone to take over management of the ranch in exchange for future ownership--she jumps at the chance to provide a real home for her brother.  
    If she proves to have a knack for ranching and agrees to remain single for life, the ranch can be hers. Neither stipulation worries Molly. SheÆs resourceful and hardworking. And she gave up dreams of marriage long ago when she dedicated her life to her brotherÆs well-being.  
    However, Molly didnÆt bank on meeting Dr. Caleb Fairbanks, the townÆs handsome and charismatic young doctor. Caleb has a way with Molly that makes her nervous. But itÆs how he is with her brother that really alarms her. Caleb sees past the wheelchair and genuinely likes Donny, but Molly fears heÆs putting unrealistic ideas into her brotherÆs head. Falling in love with Caleb would threaten everything sheÆs worked for, even her brotherÆs future happiness.  
    But it could be the very reason God brought her to Last Chance Ranch.
