I had never heard anything quite like this before listening to the Tim Keller address, What Is Gospel-Centered Ministry?. It was my introduction to Keller, and to the gospel-centered view of Scripture and ministry he articulates. As I listened, I began to see both from a new angle. The portion highlighted in this video clip was particularly revealing: the Bible tells us one story through all its stories: the story of redemption through Jesus Christ.
I have long known and believed that the gospel is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe. Grasping it more fully excited me then, and it still does now.
