Name Above All Names (Free eBook from Faith Life)
Name above All Names (eBook) by Alistair Begg & Sinclair Ferguson is free in the month of August from Faith Life Books.
Here is what they are saying about this book:
“No biblical or theological subject captivates my heart and stimulates my mind more than the glory of Christ. One day every knee with bow at the mention of His name. If you want to understand why (and have your own heart humbled, filled with gratitude, and aroused to worship), nourish your soul with this simple yet profound overview of who Jesus is and what He has accomplished.”
―John MacArthur, Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California; President, The Master's University and Seminary
“As Christians, we find it easy to talk about God’s work in our communities and around the world. It’s easy to describe our growth in Christ and what we are learning from him. But how many of us simply delight in talking about Jesus? The art of contemplating the loveliness of Christ―and infusing those admirations into everyday conversation―is a dying discipline. But in Name above All Names, my friends Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson invite us to meditate afresh on our wonderful savior and all that makes him beautiful and praiseworthy. I highly recommend this remarkable volume!”
―Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO, Joni and Friends International Disability Center
“Who is Jesus? There is no more important question human beings can face. Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson provide a wealth of knowledge about Christ by looking at how Christ is presented in the New Testament through a collection of exquisite images. Every Christian will celebrate this book as these two gifted authors bring us into an even deeper understanding of who Christ is and who he is for us.”
―R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“You can’t have too many good books about the person and work of Jesus Christ. And this is a great book. Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson handle the most important doctrines of the faith with clarity, fidelity, pastoral insight, and good humor. New Christians, non-Christians, and long-time Christians will benefit from these superb expositions.”
―Kevin DeYoung, Senior Pastor, Christ Covenant Church, Matthews, North Carolina
For all of those who, like me, have spent a lifetime in church hearing the Bible stories, but have only begun to grasp the central story of the Bible, Name above All Names winsomely and clearly connects the dots. Two wise guides help us to see Jesus throughout the scriptures―from the promise of his coming as the seed of the woman in Genesis, to the promise of his coming again as Lamb on the Throne in Revelation.”
―Nancy Guthrie, author, Even Better than Eden: Nine Ways the Bible’s Story Changes Everything about Your Story
Did you ever watch Scooby-Doo? I did. I still remember the rerun of the 1972 episode with Jonathan Winters (1925-2013). Did you see that one? Jonathan Winters played himself as a guest on the cartoon show as well as Maude Frickert. Maude’s late husband had invented radioactive chicken feed that would increase the size of chickens to giant proportions. Maude hoped that they could improve their production of fried chicken to take over the market. Unfortunately, Mr. Frickert hid the secret recipe before he died and didn’t tell his wife where it was. Shady characters were snooping around the farm, and Maude needed help. The gang joins Jonathan Winters to save the day in this episode of Scooby-doo.
Are you hungry for radioactive fried chicken? Yummy. Sounds like a show from the ’70s, doesn’t it? The reason it came to mind was because of Jonathan Winters played more than one role. Not only was he Maude’s voice, but he also pretended to be the National Guard. As gifted as he was, he couldn’t …
MANUSCRIPT WelcomeWelcome! I am pastor Rob, and it is a privilege to speak to you today. Christmas I want to tell you something embarrassing. Don’t tell anyone. At times I was a brat growing up, and I am not proud of it. The primary reason I say that is because of one event about 25 years ago. I was in Junior High and reacted horribly to a gift. You know when you are hoping that you are going to get something, and it is like your aunt knit a giant pink onesie bunny pajama suit, like the one in Christmas Story? Have you ever had that experience? Maybe you had expectations for something, and it didn’t meet those expectations? I had. That picture was not me by the way. I don’t wear glasses. My gift was way better than a bunny costume, mind you. Here is an audio clip of what I got. You tell me what it was. (PLAY MP3) That is right. My brothers and I got the super, cool, hi-tech, 8-Bit Nintendo System with Super Mario Brothers, as a game. Who wouldn’t want that? That was great. However, I…
