Q & A with Author Mike Glenn
Q. How would you explain the title, The Gospel of Yes?
A. The scandalous good news of the gospel is "God is for us." That's the message Jesus brought to us. God's word to us is a resounding yes. The great yes of God echoes back to us in creation, in the call of Abraham, the Exodus, the missionary work of the early church--and ultimately and supremely in Jesus Christ. God's word to humanity is Yes! Yes to life and life more abundant; Yes to restoration and healing and Yes to eternity with Him.

We started talking and preaching about the Yes we have Christ Jesus and when you know your yes (the person you are in Christ and the purpose for which you were created), then the No's of your life take care of themselves.
