High King of Heaven

Edited by John MacArthur, High King of Heaven is a collection of essays from well known evangelical scholars and pastors, focusing on the work of Christ Jesus. The book is divided into three parts: The Person of Christ, the work of Christ, the word of Christ, and the witness to Christ. One thing that is important to know –the book is simply the written sermons preached at the 2017 Shepherd's conference hosted by Grace Community Church, pastored by MacArthur. 

Theologically, the book is great. The focus of the book is wonderful. Some sections are very weighty, but again, they read like sermons, not written chapters of a book. You can't get as deep in a spoken sermon than you can in a written book, so the chapters are not as thorough as they could have been. In a book with this many authors in such a wide range of topics, it can feel a bit disjointed. With 23 chapters written by 23 authors of various styles, that is expected. If you have listened to the Shepherd's Conference 2017, you have already gone through this content. 

Thanks to for the review copy.
