What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

“These authors delight in the realistic, uncompromising gospel ministry, which beautifully accents every page of this book. Entrusted with the Gospel abounds with ancient, biblical wisdom for every generation. It isn’t just a book for pastors but for everyone who needs, knows, loves, and proclaims the gospel of Jesus Christ. God has entrusted every Christian with the glorious ministry of his abundant life-giving gospel, but like Timothy, many Christians are timid and lack confidence and wisdom in their efforts to herald the gospel entrusted to them. This book offers a much needed clarion call to gospel-established ministry for the church at the beginning of the twenty-first century.”
Burk Parsons, Copastor, Saint Andrew’s Chapel, Sanford, Florida; Editor, Tabletalk magazine

“Every minister of the gospel would be wise to reflect carefully and prayerfully on 2 Timothy. The esteemed contributors to this volume will help you do just that with insightful biblical exegesis, discernment of pressing contemporary challenges, and love for Christ and his church.”
Collin Hansen, Editorial Director, The Gospel Coalition; author, Blind Spots

“There are seasons of pastoral work in which the faithful shepherd faces serious challenges, and at these times he longs for words of refreshment, wisdom, encouragement, power, and endurance. These six expositions of Paul’s last charge to his suffering protégé provide a shot in the arm to stir both weary and strong shepherds to greater faithfulness in the ministry trust given to them by Christ. They are sober and sound catharses for the overseer’s soul. Through these sermons you hear the Spirit reminding you with joy, ‘Rely on me so that you can stay in the game with diligence until the end!’”
Eric C. Redmond, Assistant Professor of Bible, Moody Bible Institute; Pastor of Adult Ministries, Calvary Memorial Church, Oak Park, Illinois

“Piper, Ryken, Driscoll, Copeland, Chapell, and Duncan are very different people, but they are all proven champions of the unchanging gospel of Jesus. This book will help all Christians study to be faithful to the task we have been entrusted with to spread that same message. Paul’s advice to his young apprentice Timothy is ably explained in these pages. Do your family, friends, and fellow church members a favor—read this book and apply it.”
Adrian Warnock, author, Hope Reborn and Raised with Christ

“What you hold in your hands is a diversity of approaches to expositional preaching by some of today’s most capable expositors who model the unity of the one gospel, applied by one man (Paul), in one context (the church in Ephesus), written to one pastor (Timothy). And because all Scripture is inspired by God and profitable, I am certain that you will profit from these expositions as you apply this one gospel, presented in 2 Timothy, to your own ministry context and your personal life.”
Juan R. Sanchez, Jr., Senior Pastor, High Pointe Baptist Church, Austin, Texas

“For preachers still wrestling with the place biblical exposition should have in ministry, Entrusted with the Gospel speaks with one voice—‘Preach the Word!’ The proclamation of God's Word is God's way of accomplishing his work in the world. These messages will encourage you to keep God's Word at the center.”
David R. Helm, Pastor, Holy Trinity Church, Chicago; Chairman, The Charles Simeon Trust

Of all the books that I have the privilege of reviewing, I really enjoy reading and reviewing books about the Bible (commentaries, collections of sermons, Biblical stories, etc.). These type of books help to open up the Scriptures in new ways. D.A. Carson did not disappoint in his book entitled "Entrusted with the Gospel". Carson is the editor of a collection of sermons from 2 Timothy. This is a collection of 6 strong sermons that cover all of 2 Timothy. These pastoral expositions offer not only helpful insights into each particular passage but you can also see the theme throughout the collection of sermons. I recommend this book to anyone studying 2 Timothy or who are thinking about studying 2 Timothy.
