Customer Reviews for Preaching the Cross
Review 1 for Preaching the Cross
Date:October 22, 2012
This book refocuses your attention to the Lordship and Sovereignty of Christ. Most christians have become me focus and wandered from the truth that it is all about Christ and He is to be worshipped totally.
I am grateful to have stumbled upon this book. "Preaching the Cross" is a compilation of messages delivered at the 2006 "Together for the Gospel" conference. There are relatively few meaningful works in print intended to challenge and recharge the preaching batteries of those who are entrusted with faithfully communicating the message of the cross every Sunday. Therefore, this small volume is welcomed. Seven messages are given by seven well-known reformed pastors, who each approach the minister's task from different perspectives. Mark Dever, J. Ligon Duncan III, Albert Mohler, R.C. Sproul, John Piper, C.J. Mahaney, and John MacArthur each provide healthy meat to feed the preacher who may be going through a period of spiritual malnourishment in his own ministry. In an appendix at the end of the book is a "Together for the Gospel Affirmation and Denial" statement, containing eighteen articles and signed by Dever, Duncan, Mohler, and Mahaney, the principle authors. Pastors, don't skim over this too quickly! Use it as a checklist to reassess your own commitment to preaching the cross. I was challenged and greatly encouraged through the charges found within these messages. Would look forward to reading subsequent volumes if they are available.

A great reminder of the purpose of a pastor! The cross is the focus of our faith, and should be the focus of the church! These men are godly men who bring it all together to encourage pastors to preach truth. Recommended read especially for pastors!
