About Preaching the Cross

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

Preaching the Cross does just this. It is a call to expository, gospel-centered preaching as the center of pastoral ministry. This volume showcases an unprecedented combination of pastors representing a variety of evangelical traditions. Though they differ on some secondary points of church practice, they all enthusiastically celebrate the centrality of the cross of Christ-keeping the main thing the main thing. That message every reader can take away from this book and adopt in his pastoral ministry.

Authors Mark Dever, J. Ligon Ducan III, R. Albert Mohler Jr., and C. J. Mahaney are joined by colleagues John MacArthur, John Piper, and R. C. Sproul in calling pastors to pursue gospel-saturated, preaching-centered ministries.

Endorsements

"This is a book about what matters in the church, not about what is trendy, weighty, or popular. Preaching the Cross is about what endures, not what is momentarily successful. It is about what God intends for the church-that we preach his Word with its center in the person and work of Christ-and it is about what the church needs most to hear. These essays are written with wisdom, winsomeness, practicality, and biblical fidelity."
David F. Wells, Distinguished Senior Research Professor, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"This book on preaching the cross is written by the best of men who know the grace of the crucified Christ and serve in the power of his resurrection. It is a call for other ministers of the gospel to faithfully proclaim the message of the cross and the empty tomb. It is also an invitation to share in the fellowship of godly pastors who stand together for Jesus in a world that needs the gospel."
Philip Graham Ryken, President, Wheaton College
