If you were to boil down Christianity to one single thing, you’d find that the one thing is Jesus Christ. For the centrality of Jesus Christ is the very heart and focus of Christianity.

The topic of the centrality of Christ is one of my favorites and one I meditate upon frequently (and has been the focus of the past several studies in Ephesians). Jesus is central. He is the focus. He is the North Star we fix our compass to. He is to be the delight of our hearts, the focus of our eyes, the meditation upon our minds, and the declaration upon our lips.

Charles Spurgeon is often referred to as the Prince of Preachers. By age 20 he had preached over 600 times and later as pastor of the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London, he typically preached four to ten times a week.

The key quality (amongst others) that captivates me about Spurgeon is his own captivation of Christ. He was obsessed with the focus and centrality of Jesus Christ—putting that as a key topic in many of his sermons.

Several years ago a team and I got together and curated a collection of Spurgeon’s sermons with this direct theme and focus, calling it: Spurgeon on the Centrality of Christ. The sermons contained therein are stirring, powerful, and yes … captivating.

This month the Ellerslie Alumni and I are reading this book together as a part of our new Alumni Network and I thought it would be fun to give away a few copies.

So this month, I am delighted to give away seven copies of Spurgeon on the Centrality of Christ.
