The Living Gospel


Mark Gilbert with contributions from Graham Bacon, Duncan Heaster, John Parkes, John Stibbs and John Thatcher.



Jesus told us that the two most important commandments are to love God and to love our neighbour. The other New Testament writers reinforced this message, and faithful people in the Old Testament understood it also.

Everything must be viewed from the right perspective and have the right foundation. If we get the basics right - living by love and faith, then we have God’s way to deal with things that happen in our lives. We hope this book helps all of us to get the basics right, and encourages us to live by them.
