‘This is a work that will serve the church permanently in helping readers “to know”, whether much better or for the first time, “the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge”. I commend it most highly.’ — RICHARD B. GAFFIN, JR.

Knowing Christ is a majestic gem. Its author takes the reader by a loving pastoral hand into depths and riches, exhorting us to know Christ better and to love him more.’ — ROSARIA BUTTERFIELD

Book Description

From the foreword by J.I. Packer:
The Puritans loved the Bible, and dug into it in depth. Also, they loved the Lord Jesus, who is of course the Bible’s focal figure; they circled round him, centred on him, studied minutely all that Scripture had to say about him, and constantly, conscientiously, exalted him in their preaching, praises, and prayers. Mark Jones, an established expert on many aspects of Puritan thought, also loves the Bible and its Christ, and the Puritans as expositors of both; and out of this triune love he has written a memorable unpacking of the truth about the Saviour according to the classic Reformed tradition, and the Puritans supremely. Knowing Christ is a book calculated to enrich our twenty-first-century souls, and one that it is an honour to introduce.

    :

    I’ve spent nearly a year now walking through this book with a group of men from the College Ministry I pastor. Each week, we meet for dinner and to discuss a chapter of the book. This has been both transformative and rewarding. Jones has the ability to capture complex and rich theological truths in language that is both understandable yet profound. He has certainly taken a page from many of the greats who do not simply say true things, but say true things beautifully.

    The short and concise nature of the chapters makes this book entirely readable, while the breadth of Jones knowledge and scholarship makes each chapter worth a second or third look. Though it is clearly written with a devotional quality, I found that the book shines especially in group discussions. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
