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.
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
