The Gospel is the Heart of Scripture

The church’s vocation is to treasure the gospel and live it out. The late theologian John Webster believed Christian preachers and theologians should be principally concerned with the proclamation of this news. At the center of that proclamation is our salvation in Christ.

In this compilation of homilies, John Webster explores the various contours of the salvation accomplished for us in Christ and displays for preachers a model of theological exegesis that understands that the gospel is the heart of holy Scripture. Readers of Christ Our Salvation will be presented with a feast of “theological” theology for Christian proclamation.

Praise for Christ our Salvation

John Webster’s sermons are a breath of fresh air.

–Hans Boersma, Saint Benedict Servants of Christ Chair in Ascetical Theology, Nashotah House Theological Seminary

Webster's voice here is more direct than allusive, more quotable than cautious, more wise than clever.

–Fred Sanders, Torrey Honors Institute, Biola University

These are truly uplifting sermons.

–Christopher Holmes, Head of the Theology Programme, University of Otago

These expositions are a gift: faithful to Holy Scripture, brief, clear, and edifying.

–Scott R. Swain, President and James Woodrow Hassell Professor of Systematic Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary

These proclamations hammer against the hardened walls of a too-frequently secularized church, reminding us that Jesus is alive and active and that we, therefore, have great hope.

–Michael Allen, John Dyer Trimble Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary

Wonderfully accessible and delightful sermons by a preacher who knew what it meant to speak the gospel and speak it well.

–Ivor J. Davidson, Honorary Research Professor in Divinity, University of Aberdeen

This treasury of sermons shows John Webster at his best.

–George Hunsinger, professor of Systematic Theology, Princeton Theological Seminaryy

In [Jesus], God is with us, and in these sermons, Webster won't let us forget it.

–Brad East, Assistant Professor of Theology, Abilene Christian University
