Serving as the managing editor of The Gospel Project has been a rewarding experience. One of the aspects I’ve most enjoyed has been seeing the passion that so many have for teaching that focuses on the gospel and is centered on Christ.
That is one of the reasons why I wrote Gospel-Centered Teaching. I wanted to provided a resource for those who want to preach and teach Christ consistently, but are overwhelmed at the thought.
Sharing this passion, Ed Stetzer, general editor of The Gospel Project, recently asked several leading pastors and theologians to examine and discuss Christ-Centered preaching at his blog.
Due to the overwhelming response to that series and other events we have sponsored, The Gospel Project has released an e-book entitled Christ-Centered Preaching & Teaching. Ed served as the book’s editor and invited the participants of his blog discussion to share their viewpoints on Christ-centered perspective.
The writers include:
- Dr. Daniel Block (Wheaton College)
- Dr. David Murray (Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary)
- Dr. Walt Kaiser (Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary)
- Dr. Bryan Chapell (Grace Presbyterian in Peoria, IL)
- Appendix One and Two are built from a discussion The Gospel Project hosted earlier this year. Full audio can be found here.
Our hope is that this book will advance the conversation. The contributors all approach the biblical text with a Christ-centered hermeneutic, but disagree as to exactly what that entails. In the book, they look at both the strengths and weaknesses of their various positions.
Having this conversation in evangelicalism is a good thing. We can all benefit from hearing the varying perspectives represented in the e-book.We hope this free resource will encourage you not only as teachers, but also in your daily walk with Christ – that you will better appreciate Him as the focal point of all Scripture and your life.
