On the program today I will speak with William Boekestein about the book that he has co-authored along with Joel Beeke, entitled: "Why Christ Came" - 31 Meditation on the Incarnation.
When thinking about Christâ€™s birth, we often focus our attention on Lukeâ€™s detailed gospel account. But to appreciate the main point of the storyâ€”that the eternal Son of God assumed our flesh-and-blood human natureâ€”we need to learn from the rest of the Bible why Christ came to earth. Why did Christ come? In this book, thirty-one thoughtful meditations answer this vital question, and the answers encourage us to celebrate Christâ€™s birth more deeply, see more clearly how it is connected with the rest of His ministry, and recognize its importance for our lives.
William Boekestein is pastor of Covenant Reformed Church in Carbondale, Pennsylvannia.
