Overview

In THE GRACE OF TRUTH, John speaks from deep personal experience of Christ and his work, of God's judgment on unbelief and of faith in his promises, and of the Spirit-given character of our common life as the people of God. Here you'll find a rich collection of thoughtful and practical sermons from John's many years in the pulpit, to feed both mind and heart.

ENDORSEMENTS:

It's one thing to teach the truth, and something else to proclaim it, not only interpreting Scripture but finding yourself and your hearers interpreted by it. That is what happens in reading these sermons: one forgets the preacher and hears Christ. John Webster believes "...that growth in the Christian life is simply growth in seeing that the gospel is true." Reading these sermons, I found myself joining in his joyful "Amen!" to all of the promises that we have in Jesus Christ. What could be more rewarding than that?"
-Michael Horton, Westminster Seminary California

I used The Grace of Truth for daily devotions and it was superb. Stimulating and refreshing, it takes the reader to the truth about God and about our human condition. Pastoral, cliché-free and accessible, John Webster's book will be returned to often. I commend it strongly.
-Dominic Smart, Gilcomston South Church, Aberdeen, Scotland

John Webster displays a great sense of the power of the English language and and an even greater sense of the reliability of Holy Scripture and the power of the gospel. Together these make compelling and inspiring reading.
-Graeme Goldsworthy, Moore College, Australia

Splendid sermons, andnot just as models for aspiring preachers! Unobtrusive scholarship, meticulous listening to scriptureand close observation of the human predicament combine to give us God's word just where we need it.
-Donald Macleod, Free Church of Scotland College

These are sermons of a high order, carefully and constantly attentive to the Biblical text, and alive to the deep realities of human life. The attentive reader will both learn and grow.
-Stephen Holmes, University of St. Andrews, Scotland

John Webster's work is beautifully written, unfailingly encouraging, and throughly Christ-centered. It is pure gospel-aged and distilled out of years of theological reflection and biblical study. Here indeed is a work that lifts our eyes to the heavens, from whence our help still comes.
-Noel Due, Highland Theological College, Scotland, Adelaide College of Ministries, Australia

This superb book provides an invaluable opportunity to engage with the preaching of one of the world's leading contemporary evangelical theologians. This should prove of immense interest to lay people, clergy, students and academics alike.
-Alan Torrance, University of St. Andrews, Scotland

These collected sermons from John Webster are rich in biblical content, perceptive in their diagnosis of the human condition, Christ-centered in their focus, and filled with hope through the gospel. Read and savor these sermons that you might repent, believe, and persevere to the glory of Christ!
-Steven Roy, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

It has been said that if all our preachers were theologians and all our theologians were preachers, the church would be in a much healthier condition. How good then to read these sermons from one of our leading British theologians, testimony to the fact that the only theology worth pursuing arises out of the life of the church. John demonstrates that the complexity and depth of his understanding of the grace of God in Christ can be made not only accessible but challenging, stimulating and thrilling.
-A.T.B. McGowan, Inverness East Church of Scotland, University of the Highlands and Islands
