Rodney Smith, a nineteenth-century British evangelist, once quipped: “There are five Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and the Christian, but most people never read the first four.”
That’s a sobering thought. But also an encouraging one. Because while most non-Christians today will never read the four gospels, they will read a fifth gospel: the lives of those who claim to be Christ followers.
Have you ever considered that a watching world might be reading you like a book?
Few Christians can rightly say with the apostle Paul, ‘Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.’ Bobby Conway is just such a Christian, and, as such, his passion for Christ is contagious. That’s why you should read -- no, prayerfully devour -- The Fifth Gospel. It’s a timely book that will help many to move beyond merely reading the Gospels to actually living the authentic Christian life.
