Overview

In the days immediately following 9/11, Joseph Stowell attended a special
Chicago Prayer Breakfast. He was encouraged to learn there was much interest in
God and spirituality among the attendees. He was troubled, however, by the subtle implication common among the speakers that day that Jesus, with His exclusive claims,
was unwelcome. That, "given the broad diversity of religions in America, we now need to give up the 'traditions' that divide those of us who believe in God. Stowell left the breakfast even more determined to preach the centrality of Christ in the church. Proclaiming Jesus is a collection of essays, written by faculty of the Moody Bible Institute in honor of Dr. Stowell, that take up the message he proclaimed,
making it clear that every area of church life and ministry is about Jesus.
