What is the message of this book for you and your church? “Follow Christ. Lift up the cross!”
These days, most Christians and even most pastors don’t know a lot about church history. And with all the busyness of ministry, why should they? Why should pastors care about church history—from the history of the global church to the history of their own local church?

Even though Luke is the longest book in the New Testament, I want to encourage pastors to preach through the whole book.
Pastoral authority is derived from God, it’s rooted in his Word, and it should be shared among a plurality of elders.
