Crossway Books will release a new book next month “Preaching the Cross” — with contributors Mark Dever, J. Ligon Duncan, Al Mohler, C.J. Mahaney, John MacArthur, John Piper, and R.C. Sproul. Here’s a description:
“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.
Preaching the Cross does just this. It is a call to preaching the gospel as the center of pastoral ministry. This volume showcases an unprecedented combination of pastors representing a variety of evangelical traditions. Though they may differ on some secondary points of church practice, they all enthusiastically celebrate the centrality of the cross of Christ.”
