The incarnation of the eternal, invisible, almighty God in a first-century Jew born in Bethlehem is a mystery—but not one left to our imaginations. God in a Word leads followers—and seekers—of the one true God on a glorious path through Scripture toward appreciating the most foundational truths about the Christian faith.
Pastors Joe Godwin, Paul Pyle, and Joey Turner unpack the apostle John’s meaning when he says “In the beginning was the Logos.” Then they illuminate the apostle Paul’s famous recitation of an ancient hymn on the emptying of Christ, building to a grand conclusion: Christ is first because he was first. All of this searching culminates in two critical questions for readers:
Who is Jesus Christ to you?
Is that who the Bible says he is?
The chapters of God in a Word began as sermons preached to the authors’ local congregation at Patterson Park Church in Beavercreek, Ohio.
