Item description for The Centrality of Jesus Christ (Works of T. Austin-Sparks) Volume One by T. Austin Sparks...
T. Austin-Sparks was one of the great spiritual figures of the twentieth century. Perhaps no one in the last one hundred years gave us ministry that is so Christ-centered. When the measure of a man's ministry is taken as how much he exalted Christ, then T. Austin-Sparks is without peer. Sparks wrote over one hundred books. The golden chord which ran through all those works was the exaltation of his Lord. He has given us more spiritual insight into Christ than perhaps any other man of the last 1700 years. To read Sparks is to discover Christ as few men have ever known or seen him. Sparks' writings speak little of the Christ of Galilee - rather he has given us the resurrected and enthroned Lord. He has gone even farther than this, to show us the insuperable Christ who dwells within us. This presentation of his Lord would be enough to make Sparks' ministry unique, but Sparks went on to join head to body (Christ and the church). As surely as his spoken and written ministry exalted the Lord, so also Sparks called forth the almost forgotten centrality of the church. For T. Austin-Sparks, the two were inseparable. Nor did he speak of the church that most men have known and experienced.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Centrality of Jesus Christ (Works of T. Austin-Sparks) Volume One?
Mind-altering Nov 9, 2007
I haven't finished this book, because every time I pick it up I get about a page into it and the Holy Spirit stops me and I have to meditate on what I just read. As the title says, it's all about Christ, everything starts and finishes there.
The Centrality and Supremacy of the Lord Jesus Christ Jul 13, 2007
Sparks brings us back to the meaning of it all: The Centrality of Jesus Christ. The true church must return back to Christ and leave behind all that is clouding his pure image. This volume is a must read.
I believe Sparks' book, "The Centrality and Supremacy of Christ" is simple but profound. He discusses the person and work of Christ and speaks of how many Christians only have an "ill-defined" Christ. They received Christ, but have yet to "grow up into" him. They seek after 'good' things and seek to discover worldly ways of 'reviving' the church. All other pursuits will lead to endless frustration. It is only the pursuit of Christ, his person and his work, that will satsify.
This is where New Testament Church restoration is found. This is how the revolution will begin: The church placing Christ in the center again!
My favorite quote from this book reads... "...you and I will never be Christians, or servants of the Lord, in real spiritual life and effectiveness beyond the measure of our inward apprehension of the Lord Jesus." T. Austin Sparks
