Does The Gospel Form the Central Content of Most of Today’s Preaching?

Although there are allusions to this remarkable story [the Gospel] in popular preaching and evangelism today, one wonders if it can be said that it forms the central content.  Even in conservative Protestant circles today, the gospel is popular summarized with formulas, definitions, and phrases that are not even implied in the New Testament.  In fact, these phrases shift the focus from Christ back to us.
