“Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son…” (Hebrews 1:1-2). Jesus Christ is the central figure around which all of history is centered on. All things have been created by Him and for Him (Colossians 1:16). So, obviously, it is important to read books about Him!
Name Above All Names | Alistair Begg & Sinclair Ferguson (Easy). A short and simple book that brings out great truth about who Jesus is and what He came to accomplish for His people. If you know the authors, you know you’re in for something good.
The Man Christ Jesus | Bruce Ware (Easy). This book focuses specifically on the Humanity of Jesus Christ and its importance in relation to other doctrines (e.g. salvation) and our every day lives.
The Person of Christ | Donald Macleod (Advanced). At times this book wades deep waters, but time after time, I find myself returning to my well noted and highlighted pages only to walk away filled with awe for our gracious King. Also, it contains one of greatest passages I have ever read in any book.
The Incomparable Christ | Oswald Sanders (Easy). You’ll love this. With short, powerful, and punchy chapters, Sanders looks at Christ from His pre-incarnate glory all the way to His second coming and shows how there is none like Him.
Vintage Jesus | Mark Driscoll (Easy). What’s the truth about Jesus Christ? Driscoll answers in a clear, organized, humorous, and compelling way.
The Deity of Christ | Edited by C. Morgan & R. Peterso (Advanced). A group of great scholars present a comprehensive and more scholarly approach to establishing the deity of Christ.
Putting Jesus in His Place | R. Bowman and J. Komoszewski (Medium). Why do Christians think Jesus is God? Well, to use the acronym of these fellas, because Jesus has the HANDS of God (Honors of God, Attributes of God, Names of God, Deeds of God, and Shares the Seat of God).
