Overview

Written by Theologian Sinclair Ferguson, the Second Book in the Growing Gospel Integrity Series Explores the Christian’s Call to Christlikeness

While Jesus offers forgiveness for believers who sin, Scripture makes it clear that Christians are to pursue obedience and holiness. So what does it mean to walk in a manner that’s “worthy of the gospel of Christ” (Phil. 1:27), and how should that look in the life of a Christ follower?

In this short, accessible guide, theologian Sinclair Ferguson explains the importance of living worthy of the gospel, why the principle is often forgotten, and how it’s cultivated. Clarifying the difference between biblical obedience and legalism, Ferguson exhorts believers to pursue Christlikeness, offering practical examples from Scripture. The second book of the Growing Gospel Integrity series, Worthy helps Christians, students, pastors, and those preparing for ministry to live as citizens of heaven rather than citizens of the world.

Written by Theologian Sinclair Ferguson: Explains how humility, God’s providence, and even suffering cultivate righteousness

Practical Study: Encourages Christians to intentionally pursue holiness and find satisfaction in the presence and love of Christ

Great for Pastors, Students, and Laypeople: Defines the grammar and language of the Bible and explores the difference between obedience and legalism

God delights to turn things upside down. Most think a ‘worthy’ person must be someone great. Sinclair Ferguson shows that the people ‘worthy of the gospel’ are those humbled by their sins, transformed by Christ’s cross, and obsessed with knowing the Lord. Nothing less is fitting for the gospel. Highly recommended!

—Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

Like conjoined twins, legalism and antinomianism share the same heart. Curved in on itself, it recoils at being justified by an alien righteousness and being sanctified by conformity to someone else’s identity. Sinclair Ferguson’s long ministry of proclaiming God’s word has always struck at both forms of heart disease. Laced with pastoral warmth, striking illustrations, and dry Scottish humor, Worthy sets the table richly for a feast that will nourish the hearts of believers and invite strangers to pull up a chair.

—Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California
