Steven J. Lawson, the senior pastor of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church in Mobile, Alabama, will address the theme: "Proclaiming the Perfections of God".
Tonight's theme is also the subtitle of the new book published by Reformation Trust that Dr. Lawson contributed to with R.C. Sproul, Alistair Begg, D.A. Carson, Sinclair Ferguson, and other powerful writers and preachers, titled Holy, Holy, Holy (see http://www.ligonier.org/store/holy-holy-holy-proclaiming-the-perfections-of-god-hardcover/).
As the publishers describe Holy, Holy, Holy:
The angels in Isaiah’s vision of God’s heavenly temple (Isa. 6) used threefold repetition to praise His holiness, the superlative form of emphasis in the Hebrew language. Their cry tells us that nothing is as significant as the holiness of God.
Tragically, the holiness of God has been obscured in our time, and as a result, the church’s doctrine and ethics have been tarnished, entertainment has replaced worship in many places, the Gospel is misunderstood and neglected, and the church assimilates itself to the culture instead of seeking to transform it through the preaching of God’s Word.
Holy, Holy, Holy: Proclaiming the Perfections of God offers a corrective. Here, the holiness of God is defined, explored, and praised by a lineup of leading evangelical pastors and scholars, who show how it affects our worship, doctrine, and personal walks with Christ. Contributors include Thabiti Anyabwile, Alistair Begg, Don Carson, Ligon Duncan, Sinclair Ferguson, Robert Godfrey, Steven J. Lawson, Albert Mohler, R.C. Sproul, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Derek Thomas.
Adapted from the lectures at the 2009 Ligonier Ministries National Conference, Holy, Holy, Holy unfolds the character of God and the holiness that sets Him apart. Here is high theology in understandable language, bringing deeper knowledge of God and promoting love for Him.
