Product Description

No ordinary book of memoirs concludes with the promise, 'I am with you always, even to the end of the world.' But the biography of Jesus is no mere commemoration of the departed; his promise makes the Evangelists' account a living history. "Take the Gospel record in your hands", says Hugh Martin, "and you have the means of causing you to realize Christ's presence." Whether you are burdened, anxious, failing, sorrowful, or hardened, Jesus' promise means that his perfect words come with power to people in every condition and that he is present with his people in every situation. - Introduction by Sinclair B. Ferguson.

"Hugh Martin takes us to vantage points other authors miss or never thought of ascending. He leads us to a fuller and richer understanding of the person, ministry and sacrifice of Jesus - and with that a deeper faith and a more fervent love for him. This, then, is a work to treasure, one that repays reading and re-reading." - Sinclair B. Ferguson ~ Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
