In the year of our Lord
Modern people tend to be enamored with the present: what is new, innovative, and exciting. Even many Christians cut themselves off from the past, reading only the latest books and singing only the newest songs. This, Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson writes, is tragic for the Christian life, for the past is filled with God’s mighty works in the lives of His people. With classic writings, stories, and hymns, Dr. Ferguson introduces readers to the Christian family—the worldwide, history-deep, everlasting church of Jesus Christ. As we trace this grand narrative from first-century Jerusalem to our own day, we find lessons to learn, truths to cherish, tragedies to mourn, and victories to celebrate. The Lord is still building His church, and nothing will prevail against it.
