As we gather for the eleventh year, we've chosen to return to the basics of our daily ministry. We desire to have our minds engaged and souls stirred as we consider God's call upon our lives as ministers of the Gospel. In his book, The Priority of Preaching, Christopher Ash reminds us that, "to be a preacher is one of the most deeply humbling experiences in the world. Preaching drives us to our knees, puts gigantic butterflies in our stomachs, and makes us cry out, 'Who is sufficient for these things?'" We pray that through these messages, we may be renewed in our desire to preach God's Word and in our trust on Him.
“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
