Summary

For those who are weary of Christian cliché and compromise crowding out what was supposed to be good news, The Naked Gospel offers the fresh take on the story of Jesus you've been waiting for.

As a university student, Andrew Farley found himself physically and emotionally addicted to street evangelism and Bible study. Yet despite his fervid behavior, he knew something was missing.

That something was an understanding of the gospel that is stripped of the churchy jargon and hypocrisies of the modern church. The Naked Gospel finds kindred spirits among those who are burned out on experience-chasing, ceremonialism, or legalism. It dismantles churchy jargon and powerless ideas and puts forth a message that is simple but life changing:

Jesus plus nothing. 100% natural. No additives.

The Naked Gospel is an invitation to dive deep into the indispensable, powerful core of the Christian faith. Are you ready?

Spanish edition also available.

Thank you Dr Farley.

This will make you free

Andrew delivers a timely , well thought out apologetic for the true message of the new testament .

The modern parables that he uses really help to get the point across .

The narration in this book is okay but not the best I have heard ! Well worth the listen !

Really bad narration.

I enjoyed Andrew Farley's newest book, God Without Religion, so I decided to give this one a try. However, I couldn't get through more than about 15 minutes of listening to this one. The narrator is just unbearable which is sad because I'm quite sure that the book would be just as good as his newest one.

Not my favorite

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, not on audio anyway. The reader of the book was awful. He sounded like a game show host, which when reading a book on Christ makes it even more awful.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Something in fiction.

What didn’t you like about Don Reed’s performance?

I did not like anything about this performance. Thought it was bad. Sorry Don.

Do you think The Naked Gospel needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes and no about the follow-up. I'm not sure that I agree with everything Farley has to say. This is a book I would feel better actually reading, as opposed to listening to it, so that I can go back and do my own research on some things Farley brings up.

Any additional comments?

I don't think Andrew Farley's book is "dangereous" l but I can see where his Naked Gospel could be confusing to some. I think he has some good points but they need to be flushed out better than they were in the book.

Great book. Terrible, infomercial-like narration.

I really could not listen to more than a few minutes of listening to Don Reed's narration of this wonderful Andrew Farley book on grace. My ears hurt and I could not focus on the book, felt like I was listening to a really, REALLY cheesy and looooooong radio commercial from the 1940s. I would recommend Andrew Farley's other title, "God Without Religion", which is expertly narrated by Maurice England.

The Naked Gospel

I hope I can get through this book. The phony sounding narrator is horribly distracting from the message.

Great!

A step toward understanding the Bible's message for perhaps the first time. Legalism hates this message because it Liberates the captives by showing what Christ has really done for them in the Gospel! Satan hates this for the same reasons. Be Free for once; so you can Worship, and mean it!

be careful

if your a Christian be careful when going through this book usually when a person finds so crazy new doctrine that changes everything for Christians its a farce. i stopped listening at chapter 2 because he was taking things put of context and twisting the apostle paul's story to fit his narrative

Great reminder of the Gospel!!!

This book was really enjoyable!!!

The power of the Gospel is explained in a simple and biblical manner in this book.
Sometimes the church or religion seems to complicate or add to the Gospel.
This book was a great reminder of how simple and powerful the Gospel really is.

Naked gospel?

I enjoyed the book and it gives a thought provoking approach to the message of Christ and salvation. I greatly appreciate the message of the power of God's grace. Other assumptions such as Adam and Eve innocently partaking of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil simply can't stand as presented in the book. Adam disobeyed God's instruction to leave the tree alone. Adam ignored God's warning and the result that death would follow disobedience. No matter how good the tree looked or how desirable for food it was not for man to mess with. As they say the road to hell is paved with good intentions! Still I enjoyed the read!
