The Pastor's Study, Volume 1

Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said that "the work of preaching is the highest and greatest and most glorious calling to which anyone can ever be called." Such a high calling, however, comes with a high level of responsibility: As a pastor places his confidence in the Gospel’s power, the task of proclamation must be his chief concern. In the Pastor’s Study, we present a collection of sermons designed to help and encourage the Gospel-centered pastor as he evangelizes faithfully and establishes believers in the sound doctrine essential to spiritual growth. In volume one of this series, Alistair Begg looks to Scripture for examples of biblical leadership. In Nehemiah’s efforts to rebuild Jerusalem’s walls and Paul’s work to establish the New Testament Church, today’s pastors find patterns of God-centered leadership worthy of imitation. True leadership, the Bible reminds us, is about submitting oneself to God’s vision for His people.

In volume two of this series, Alistair Begg addresses practical aspects of preaching common to every pastor. Throughout Scripture and Christian history, we see God using biblical preaching to build His Church and save the lost. While methods vary and styles differ, a pastor’s practice in the pulpit should reflect his careful stewardship of God’s Word and point hearers to the cross.

The Pastor's Study, Volume 3

Paul’s words in 2 Timothy 4:2-5 are the mandate for all those who are called to pastoral ministry. Martyn Lloyd-Jones once commented that "the work of preaching is the highest and greatest and most glorious calling to which anyone can ever be called." He went on to say that "the most urgent need in the Christian church today is for true preaching and as it is the greatest and most urgent need in the church it is, obviously, the greatest need in the world also." To a generation in which the priority of preaching has been sadly diminished, the apostolic mandate remains. As a pastor places his confidence in the power of the Gospel itself, as applied by the Holy Spirit, the task of proclamation must be his clear priority. We trust that these studies will prove to be a great encouragement to pastors in this God-given task. As we remain true to this calling those in our congregation will become mature and grounded in the sound doctrine which is essential to all spiritual growth.

The Pastor's Study, Volume 5

Pastors may be tempted to pitch their messages as if they were product commercials, but must learn to preach the truths of God’s Word with boldness and clarity, having full confidence in the sufficiency of Scripture. Sadly, the priority of Gospel preaching has been diminished in today’s churches - yet the apostolic mandate remains. In this series, Alistair Begg emphasizes the importance of a Christ-centered ministry. Unless God’s grace is properly understood, it will never take precedence in preaching. When a pastor places his confidence in the power of the Gospel itself, as applied by the Holy Spirit, proclaiming the Good News will become the passionate desire of his heart. We trust that these studies will prove to be a great encouragement to pastors in their God-given task.

In volume six of this series, Alistair Begg examines the Bible’s instruction on pastoral priorities. Scripture teaches that the pastor must give himself wholeheartedly to the preaching of the Gospel—a duty built on prayer and personal holiness. With this priority in view, pastors can equip their congregations in the confidence that God Himself empowers their work
