Gospel-Centered Resources

I have written several times in the past on the importance and theological accuracy of Gospel-centered theology. Cross-, Jesus-centered.

Many have asked me for resources on how to study Gospel-centered theology. I have created a short bibliography that you may find helpful. Although I have not read every one of these books, I have read many of them, or have read other books by the same authors. I think this list is solid overall.
