What a tremendous privilege it was to participate in 2008's Together for the Gospel conference, and to attend in 2006. Both of these events have had sizable impacts on my life and ministry, and I'm very much looking forward to attending next year as well. I hope you'll be there and bring a team from your church.
In advance of T4G 2010, you may now get a copy of the book, Proclaiming a Cross-Centered Theology, which features the talks from the conference along with a very helpful addendum from Greg Gilbert called "What Is the Gospel?"
Loving, teaching, and rightly dividing the Word of God is every pastor’s privilege and responsibility. If a pastor understands what the Word says about God, man, and the curse, about Christ and his substitutionary atonement, and about the call to repentance and sacrifice, he will develop and preach a sound theology. And sound theology is, in the words of J. Ligon Duncan, essential to faithful pastoral ministry.
Proclaiming a theology that is centered on Christ’s atonement is especially critical, for by this atonement, Christians have been brought from death to life, and by it a church lives or dies. In this penetrating sequel to Preaching the Cross, John Piper, R. C. Sproul, John MacArthur, and Thabiti Anyabwile join authors Mark Dever, Ligon Duncan, C. J.
