Sinclair Ferguson on Finding Christ in the Story

Sinclair Ferguson: "We live in a time when long, thoughtful, and loving meditation on Christ seems to be rare. The dominant tendency is to read the Bible to find out about ourselves rather than about Christ—to explore even the Gospels to find where we can “find ourselves” in the Gospel story (“are you like Joseph, Nicodemus, or perhaps the blind man?”). That has a place—but it is subordinate to finding Christ in the Gospel story and fixing our eyes upon him. After all, Jesus IS the Gospel story!"

This paragraph comes from Ferguson's recommendation of the works of Hugh Martin, posted at Between Two Worlds.
