Each year in early May, pastors from across the country and around the world come to Parkside to express their partnership in the gospel and to renew their commitment to the basics of prayer and the Word of God — those activities the Apostles themselves found indispensable and which we so easily evade. We urge you to join us this year as we gather with friends and fellow workers to affirm and renew an unyielding commitment which is the very essence of our calling as pastors: "we will devote ourselves to prayer and the ministry of the Word" (Acts 6:4).
“This book, as its title suggests, is a brief exposition of what Chris¬tians often refer to as ‘the person and work of Christ.’ Its focus is on some of the different ways in which the Bible portrays Christ’s identity and describes His ministry. The chapters are by no means exhaustive. They cover only seven of the many descriptions of Jesus found in the Bible, and none of those descriptions is treated exhaustively. So these pages are meant as a taster, a beginning exploration. Our joint prayer is that they will help some who are not yet Christians, be an eye opener to those who already are, serve as an encouragement for mature believers, and be a pleasure for all who love Christ.” – Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson
