A gospel independent of history…

If religion be made independent of history, there is no such thing as a gospel. For ‘gospel’ means ‘good news,’ tidings, information about something that happened. A gospel independent of history is a contradiction in terms.

J. Gresham Machen, quoted in How Now Shall We Live? by Charles Colson and Nancy Pearcey, p. 276
