Publishers Description It is astonishing how many millions of otherwise seemingly intelligent people are willing to risk their eternal destiny upon less evidence than they would require for buying a car or even a low-carb food item -- yet the belief of so many, particularly in the area of religion, has no rational or factual foundation. The author writes, "We have become so open to everything that our minds have been closed to the idea that something may indeed be true and something else false." With well-researched arguments and compelling proofs, this book demonstrates that the issue of where one will spend eternity is not a matter of preference (like joining the Elks instead of the Lions). In fact, there is overwhelming evidence that we are eternal beings who will spend eternity somewhere. But where will it be? And how can we know? There is no more important question to be faced--and answered.

Finding the Real Gospel Feb 8, 2009
"The Nonnegotiable Gospel" is typical of Dave Hunt's clear cut, logical and scriptural approach. This is an essay as opposed to his usual fairly in-depth books. If you want the gospel in a nutshell, this booklet delivers it. It deals with -- as stated on the cover -- the three elements which the Gospel must contain for our ONLY salvation and tells us what points of belief it must NOT contain. The first part is THE GOSPEL of GOD and it deals with the wonderful benefits of being a believer and the dire results of rejecting the gospel. The second part, MERCY vs WORKS, deals greatly with what faith actually is, and how it is not what is often propagated by many ministries. The third part, THE CALL to DISCIPLESHIP, deals with what a Christian is supposed to do and be; and how he/she receives the strength to do so. Dave Hunt, and his ministry The Berean Call (www.thebereancall.org), are all about the importance of doctrine. However, he does not push a personal viewpoint. He is a stickler for keeping his eye on the ball scripturally and always points people back to their responsibility in checking the facts for themselves. The Gospel is to free us, not enslave us to denominational dogmas and doctrines. However, as it states on the back cover, "As this plain-speaking booklet shows, Salvation comes on God's terms and by His grace, and we negotiate the gospel neither with God not with one another... we either believe it or reject it." Again I will let the booklet speak for itself: "Most people are surprised to learn that the gospel contains nothing about baptism, church membership or attendance, tithing, sacraments or rituals, diet or clothing. In fact, if we add anything to the gospel, we have perverted it. So whether you are just checking out what the Bible has to say, or whether you've been attending church for years, this booklet cuts through religious confusion. It contains no hidden agenda or clever doctrines of men; instead, it invites the reader into a pure, personal relationship with Jesus Christ, though an unadulterated understanding of God's word." And it does live up to that claim! Before you worry about it being a Calvinist threat, I will mention that Dave Hunt is often accused by Calvinists of being anti-Calvinism. (He is not particularly. He merely disagrees with certain of their doctrines, as did Spurgeon whom Calvinists claim was a Calvinist. But all that's the subject of another review.) I believe all kinds of Christians, Calvinist or otherwise, would enjoy "The Nonnegotiable Gospel" and definitely benefit from reading it. I think ecumenists would benefit from it most but I do not think they would like it.
