Walt Chantry: Today's Gospel: Authentic or Synthetic?

MP3 Available Here

Walt Chantry, Editor of Banner of Truth Magazine , author of many books and former pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Carlisle, PA for nearly 40 years will address the theme of his classic work: "Today's Gospel: Authentic or Synthetic?"

Although written over 40 years ago, "Today's Gospel" contains a warning for the church that is, sadly, just as desperately needed to be heard by Christians today as it was in the 1970's.

Chantry declares that, "Differences between much of today's preaching and that of Jesus are not petty; they are enormous. The chief errors are not in emphasis or approach but in the heart of the Gospel message."

Based on the account of the Rich Young Ruler, Chantry demonstrates that what passes for the gospel message today is not what Jesus was teaching. This little book (less than 100 pages long) is a must read for anyone trying to comprehend the Lordship battles. An excellent study on the subject of the true gospel message and its illegitimate cousins.

"This little book will open your eyes to see the gospel through passage of the Rich Young Ruler in a whole new way. Chantry has the one of the best understandings of law and gospel we have seen. An antidote to today's market-driven, seeker gospel. Highly Recommended!" --

Walt was born in 1938 in Norristown, Pennsylvania. He was raised in the Presbyterian church and was converted to Christ as a teenager. He graduated from Dickinson College in 1960 with a B.A. in History, and went on to receive a B.D. from Westminster Theological Seminary in 1963. That same year he was called to be pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Carlisle, Pennsylvania where he served his Lord for the next 39 years. Soon after his retirement in 2002 he was asked to be the editor of Banner Of Truth Magazine and continues in that capacity to this day. He and his wife, Joie, have three children and 10 grandchildren. They now reside in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
