As Christians, we find it easy to talk about Gods work in our communities and around the world. Its easy to describe our growth in Christ and what we are learning from him. But how many of us simply delight in talking about Jesus? The art of contemplating the loveliness of Christand infusing those admirations into everyday conversationis a dying discipline. But in Name above All Names, my friends Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson invite us to meditate afresh on our wonderful savior and all that makes him beautiful and praiseworthy. I highly recommend this remarkable volume!

Who is Jesus? There is no more important question human beings can face. Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson provide a wealth of knowledge about Christ by looking at how Christ is presented in the New Testament through a collection of exquisite images. Every Christian will celebrate this book as these two gifted authors bring us into an even deeper understanding of who Christ is and who he is for us.

You cant have too many good books about the person and work of Jesus Christ. And this is a great book. Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson handle the most important doctrines of the faith with clarity, fidelity, pastoral insight, and good humor. New Christians, non-Christians, and long-time Christians will benefit from these superb expositions.

For all of those who, like me, have spent a lifetime in church hearing the Bible stories, but have only begun to grasp the central story of the Bible, Name above All Names winsomely and clearly connects the dots. Two wise guides help us to see Jesus throughout the scripturesfrom the promise of his coming as the seed of the woman in Genesis, to the promise of his coming again as Lamb on the Throne in Revelation.

My most significant criticism is that this book ended. I would have greatly enjoyed additional chapters, the content was so good. I have a particular interest in the titles of Christ, but anyone would benefit from the insights in this book. We all need to know and love Jesus better, and meditating on His person and work cannot leave one cold. Thank God for men like Begg and Ferguson and for books like Name Above All Names!
Many thanks to Angie Cheatham and Crossway for providing a review copy of this book in return for a fair review.

Name above ALL Names is both thoughtfully and worshipfully written and is perfect for anyone. Begg and Ferguson bring you behind the scenes to seven different titles given to Jesus Christ. They begin in Genesis with the title of Seed of the Woman and end six tiles later in Revelation with the "Lamb on the Throne." Begg and Ferguson theologically articulate these seven different titles given to Jesus that make you understand the meaning behind and the significance of these titles.
In the second chapter they carefully articulate how sinful humans really are, which was refreshing and also a reality check to me. Sometimes life can go by so fast that we think that we are actually pretty good people, but compared to a holy and almighty God we no match. Name above ALL Names helped me respond to scripture more effectively by understanding the meanings behind these great titles that are given to Jesus. Also, they just made me just simply worship Jesus and focus on Him more while reading and understand how great Jesus really is. They carefully intertwined scripture and old hymns throughout the entire book which made reading more pleasurable. I did not know all the hymns but some of them I did know and was able to sing them well I read. Overall, I was glad I was able to read this book, and will probably read it again and again. Name above ALL Names is a book I would encourage anyone to have in there library to be refreshed and learn about Jesus more.
Knowing that my theology and Begg's and Ferguson's theology wouldn't match up exactly the same, I was able to read this book with a lot of interest and excitement. I was never turned off theologically by what they wrote, except for a statement they made on page 176. They say, "Don't you see that all of these numbers are symbolic?" I must say my answer is yes to this question, but at the same time they also have literal meaning also. I felt that they left me hanging when it came to talking about how they are also literal, not just symbolic.
I was given this book by Crossway for the purpose of this review.
