God is Gospel is a superb free Christian book written by John Piper that is available free to download.

As with all of John Pipers books it is heavily rooted in the scriptures and focused on the cross. We can have a tendency to put a human touch on the gospel – that it is all about our salvation and us. Piper reminds us that actually the gospel is all about God.
As well as the pdf book, there is also a very useful study guide at the Desiring God website, and also a Leader’s Guide.

…the gospel is that God gives us himself—Christ died to give us Christ—, and this self-giving is his highest mercy to us and the best news for us! The most profound, most exceedingly gracious, final and decisive good of the good news is Christ himself as the glorious image of God revealed for our endless satisfaction.
