Richard Beck rethinks the “proper response” to the gospel. “Specifically, the soterian gospel has tended to emphasize a response of faith. Cognitive assent. But when we come to see the gospel as the declaration that the ‘kingdom of God has come near’ the issue is less about belief than repentance. Jesus declares in Mark ‘Repent and believe the good news.’”
