In The Preeminent Christ, Paul Washer declares the unmatched significance of the good news of Jesus Christ. Compelled by a desire for men to know God's love, Washer draws from the church's greatest theologians to herald Christ's centrality in revelation, salvation, sanctification, study, proclamation, and glory. The Preeminent Christ will stimulate readers to forsake their tendency to view worldly "needs" as central by zealously seeking this Christ in the gospel. Endorsements (take your pick, these are all heavy hitters):
"The disciples saw Jesus shining like the sun on the Mount of Transfiguration. Today we see the glory of Christ shining in the gospel. Paul Washer lifts up our eyes to consider the supremacy of the gospel for the Christian life and ministry. Drawing from the wisdom of great preachers and teachers of the past, Washer offers a feast for the soul and a powerful exhortation to keep our eyes fixed on the gospel in all we do."
--Joel R. Beeke, president, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan "Here is Paul Washer at his very best, addressing the greatest subject that could ever be expounded--the preeminence of Jesus Christ. In these riveting pages, Washer demonstrates that the person and work of the Lord Jesus are the alpha and omega, the sum and substance of the gospel message. Read this book carefully because it contains the most vital truth you will ever hear."
--Steven J. Lawson, president, OnePassion Ministries "As any true believer knows, Christ must be our all or our nothing. This is because of who He is as the infinitely glorious God-man and because of the indescribably wonderful salvation He has procured for us. Paul Washer does an excellent job of showing us these breathtaking realities in this Scripture-saturated and historically reinforced book. It will leave you worshiping God as your soul is saturated afresh with the unsearchable riches of Christ "
--Conrad Mbewe, pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church and founding chancellor of the African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia "I'm grateful for the voice and the pen of Paul Washer, who stands in stark contrast to the trifling superficiality of our generation. He understands and remains committed to the value and preeminence of the gospel, and he writes about it with passion and clarity. I love what he has done in this book, skillfully explaining the gospel, describing its incredible legacy, demonstrating its inestimable worth, and arguing convincingly for the gospel to have its rightful place--first place--in the study, conversation, fellowship, and worship of Christians individually and the church collectively."
--John MacArthur, from the foreword
