References: John 3Pastor Alistair Begg launched this year's Basics Conference, "do the work of an evangelist...", with a clear exposition of Jesus' well known encounter with Nicodemus in John 3. As Jesus steps onto the stage of human history, he wastes no time in elucidating what his purpose is: Repent and believe the good news! Whether preaching the gospel to a crowd on a mount or sharing the message of the gospel in a one-on-one encounter, Jesus always is aiming for more than just a renovation of character. Jesus preaches the good news about a new birth!
David Robertson, author of The Dawkins Letters, says that he was told by the leader of an atheist society: "Okay, I admit that you have destroyed my atheism, but what do you believe?" This book is his answer: an apology of faith in the face of atheism and a response to the shouts of God is Not Great! by the late Christopher Hitchens.
