New book “The Gospel: God’s Mystery Revealed” by Kirk Howell is released, a Biblical analysis and explanation for long-held scriptural questions. 

“The Gospel: God’s Mystery Revealed” by Kirk Howell has been released worldwide. This 191-page book of Christian scholarship addresses potentially confusing and conflicting elements of scripture, explaining, with fastidious detail and commitment to Biblical context, these pressing mysteries in a new light.

With care and respect for God’s message, Howell brings a unique, sometimes unorthodox interpretation to the Gospel, examining topics of sin, salvation, the importance of mystery as a part of God’s plan, the balance between the preaching of Jesus and Paul, crucifixion, and beyond. Throughout each chapter, the author deftly employs Biblical passages to support his ideas, and unpacks problematic interpretations that have long failed to answer fundamental questions about the nature of God and the Bible.

Driven by his own curiosity and deeply felt questions, this book represents the author’s effort to build personal understanding and reconcile internal conflict. Through the process of meticulous study and groundbreaking discovery, Howell knew that sharing these remarkable insights would be an act of service to the broader Christian community.

While the book is scholarly in nature, it is written in accessible, digestible language that allows readers of all backgrounds to receive its message. Howell shows that God, from the time of creation, planned to keep the Gospel a secret until the world was ready to receive it, and that His plan is far more strategic than mainstream teachings would lead Christians to believe. This strategic plan accounts for the vengeful God of the Old Testament, intentionally making Himself appear angry and judgmental until humankind was ready for the Gospel’s message of love and forgiveness.

An excellent read for anyone with questions about the Bible, finding difficulty answering their own spiritual questions, or looking for a new framework for understanding the true nature of God, this powerful, insightful book resolves important questions and provides a fascinating viewpoint that has been missing from Biblical scholarship.

The Gospel: God’s Mystery Revealed (ISBN: 9781960142122) can be purchased through retailers worldwide, including Barnes and Noble and Amazon. The paperback retails for $14.95 and the ebook retails for $9.99. Interviews and review copies are available upon request.

From the back cover:

You may be wondering, “Do we really need another Gospel commentary? Why does the title associate the Gospel with mystery, and even more, a mystery revealed?”

Contrast Jesus with the Old Testament Father God, their image in your mind. Jesus – loving, patient, and forgiving. The Father God – something quite different, strict adherence to Law, genocidal nation building. Have you ever struggled with that? Most everyone has, and most still do, though they may not openly admit it. Church scholarship has striven over the ages to find the solution. Why did God have to be so mysterious? This book will give you the Biblical answer.

And why do the Gospels preached by Jesus and Paul seem to conflict? Jesus – more towards works. Paul – more towards grace. And like me, have you not been pestered with conflicting crucifixion explanations? Was it really God’s judgment on display? Was the Father truly placing all our sin on Jesus’ back? And what about the Jews? Did they actually fail God in their climactic final exam?

In this book you will discover, with total scriptural harmony, Biblical answers to these questions and more. Nowhere herein are arguments made stripped from their Biblical context. It is astounding to see the beauty and wonder of our amazing God, when these mysteries from Scripture are revealed.
