Free Study Guide for Begg & Ferguson’s Name above All Names

Name Above All Names Study Guide CoverWe’re pleased to share with you this study guide companion to Name Above All Names by Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson, put together by our friends at Truth for Life.

Containing seven sessions to help you study the Bible’s multi-faceted portrayal of Christ’s identity and ministry, this study guide can be used for small groups or personal reflection alongside Name Above All Names. Each session includes four parts:

  1. Getting Started – a quote from the book with an introductory question
  2. Key Scriptures – key Bible verses referenced in the chapter
  3. Going Deeper – questions to help you process the main ideas of the chapter
  4. Giving Praise – a poem, hymn, or verse that can be committed to memory and incorporated in worship.

The opening words of Name above All Names summarize the impetus behind this book and study guide which we commend to you:

Jesus Christ has been given the name above all names. The names
assigned to him begin in Genesis and end in Revelation. Taken together
they express the incomparable character of Jesus Christ our Savior and
Lord. Reflecting on them better prepares us to respond to the exhortations
of Scripture, to focus our gaze upon him, and to meditate on how great he is.

Free Download: A Sample from “Salvation Accomplished by the Son”

The very heart of Christ’s saving accomplishment is his death and resurrection.

—Robert A. Peterson

As you prepare for Easter, we’d like to help you reflect on Christ’s death and resurrection. Through the first week of April, we’re offering a free download of a significant portion of Robert Peterson’s Salvation Accomplished by the Son: the Work of Christ. In these chapters, Peterson explores Christ’s saving work and offers an in-depth look into Christ’s death and resurrection.

Dr. Chris Morgan, professor of theology and dean of the School of Christian Ministries at California Baptist University, shares his experience reading Peterson’s work during the Easter season:

Salvation Accomplished by the Son

Not long ago I served as the theological reader for Robert’s Peterson’s Salvation Accomplished by the Son. It appeared to be another good book on an important topic, and it was. But it was much more.

Through Robert’s careful framing, unpacking, expounding, and applying of Christ’s saving work, Christ’s death and resurrection gripped me. Passages like Romans 4:25 and Revelation 3:14 came alive. And the significance of our Lord’s resurrection sunk in more deeply. Jesus’ resurrection brings justification, establishes peace with God, and inaugurates the new creation. I already knew and had been teaching and preaching these truths—but not enough and not with such precision.

Thankfully, I was reading the manuscript just weeks before Easter. Many insights into Christ’s death and resurrection not only found their way into me, but also in several sermons that month. Indeed, I specifically contacted Robert a few times that month to thank him for writing it and to let him know how helpful the book was in my preaching.

Ebook Special: “50 Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die” for $0.99

In his book 50 Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die, John Piper writes:

“When all is said and done, the most crucial question is: Why? Why did Jesus come to die?

“Not why in the sense of cause, but why in the sense of purpose. What did Christ achieve by his death? Why did he have to suffer so much? What great thing was happening on Calvary for the world?”

In preparation for Easter, we’ve discounted Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die. Today through Good Friday (March 27–29), buy the ebook for only $0.99 from any of our distribution partners (ChristianBook.com, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, echristian.com, participating independent stores, etc.).

Get the newly released ebook, Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead? for $4.99 or less (retail price $13.99). Download the ebook through any participating distribution partners (ChristianBook.com, Amazon, echristian.com, your local independent stores, etc.).

About the Book

How can a respected scientist believe in the resurrection?
Can I trust the Bible’s account that Jesus actually rose from the dead?
If the resurrection really occurred, of what importance is it to you and me?

Our ready embrace of the authority of science has left many doubting that Jesus’s resurrection was a verifiable, historical event. Yet Thomas Miller, an experienced scientist and well-respected surgeon, challenges the notion that modern medicine has disproved the possibility of the resurrection.

Through careful investigation of the evidence and evaluation of its reliability, Dr. Miller demonstrates that science and religion are not incompatible and makes a compelling case for the reality of the resurrection.
