Christology for Christmas

Christ Over All is a fellowship of pastor-theologians dedicated to helping the church see Christ as Lord and everything else under his feet.

Christ is the reason for the season, and during Advent we will turn our attention to more than a dozen biblical and theological reflections on the glory of Christ Incarnate. Christmas is not just a season to give gifts; it is a season to ponder the unfathomable gift of God become man. In this theme, we will put the spotlight on Christ and marvel at the reality of the Incarnation.

Crossway Publishers is graciously providing a free pdf copy of A Christian Manifesto to readers of Christ Over All for the month of October.

The Podcast

Jesus Christ reigns over all things, and this podcast exists to help people see the reality and ramifications of this truth. We post at least four times a month: Twice, we will read aloud a longform essay from our monthly theme. And twice, we will discuss each essay with its author and another Christian leader. Listen in to live in light of Christ’s Lordship.

Upcoming Themes

In October we consider the extraordinary impact of Francis Schaeffer and we draw out the present pertinence of his Christian Manifesto. In November, we ponder the past 100 years of evangelicalism in order to better decipher and live in the present. Finally, in December we savor the incarnation of Jesus Christ, who is Lord over All.
