Preaching the Cross

Recently I've been reading a book entitled Preaching the Cross, and I just can't pull my eyes from the pages! The chapters have been packed full of great insight and sound biblical teaching.

Proclaiming the gospel is without a doubt the most important task of pastoral ministry, yet often other seemingly urgent activities can obscure it. From time to time all pastors and preachers need a fresh reminder of the primacy of the gospel.

This volume showcases an unprecedented combination of pastors representing a variety of evangelical traditions.
