Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said that “the work of preaching is the highest and the greatest and the 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 early church, today’s pastors find patterns of God-centered leadership worthy of imitation.

In volume three of this series, Alistair Begg reminds pastors to stay focused on God’s Word as the source of truth. Preachers should teach the Bible in a manner that glorifies God, since He alone can change hearts and draw new worshippers to Himself. Regardless of the challenges or changes that may come, a good leader places his trust in God’s strength, not his own.

Volume four of this series addresses the value of evangelistic preaching for the modern pulpit. Drawing on biblical figures, personal experience, and known theologians, Alistair Begg explores the merits of biblical preaching that draws listeners to Christ. When pastors and congregations depend on God for strength and victory, His word is proclaimed and His name glorified.

In volume five of this series, Alistair Begg explores the Gospel’s central role in the pastor’s preaching ministry. If a preacher isn’t watchful, his pulpit can become a platform for chasing fame or sharing worldly wisdom that leaves the hearer without hope. Only the good news of God’s grace can truly kindle belief in the lost and ignite the church for its mission.

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.

In volume seven of this series, Alistair Begg emphasizes the sufficiency of Scripture in the pastor’s work. When pastors compromise the Bible’s truths or doubt its power, their ministry crumbles. God’s Word must be preached faithfully. Pastors will be strengthened by these messages as they fulfill their callings and faithfully exposit Scripture.
