Book Description:

What would you give to spend an evening with Jesus, hearing Him teach and listening to Him pray? This is what we encounter in the Farewell Discourse of John 13-17.

As the shadow of the cross loomed, Christ shared His final hours with the disciples to prepare them for His death, quiet their troubled hearts, and intercede on their behalf before the Father.

In Lessons from the Upper Room, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson draws us into these intimate hours from the night when Jesus was betrayed. This vivid picture of Christ's ministry, from His washing the disciples' feet to His High Priestly Prayer, shows us the heart of Jesus. Discover His deepest desires for His people and take delight in the suffering Savior who has overcome the world.

Endorsements:

"As I began reading this superb book, I was constantly reminded of Martin Luther's comment that 'in Scripture, every little daisy is a meadow.' Many believers will have read through John 13-17 more than once and may even feel they have a pretty good grasp of its meaning. I was one of them-until I read Sinclair Ferguson's Lessons from the Upper Room! As he wisely says, 'Our minds are far too finite to understand fully what the infinite Lord of all is doing,' but the more I read, the more I felt drawn into that amaz-ing upper room, listening, learning-and loving what the Savior was saying. Crystal-clear illustrations and warm-hearted applica-tions permeate these pages-and I will never forget the author's allegory that he calls 'The Stranger in Smokeland'! Lessons from the Upper Room is Ferguson at his finest. Get two copies-and share the treasure with someone else!"
--Dr. John Blanchard, preacher, teacher, apologist, and author

"Few passages in Scripture are as influential as John's Farewell Discourse, but its message is often elusive. Sinclair Ferguson helps us put the pieces of the puzzle in place in the light of the whole Bible. Pull up a chair and listen as Ferguson helps us understand what we overhear from Jesus' speaking to His disciples and pray-ing to His Father. This book unpacks the drama and meaning of the last night of Jesus' life and richly explains how this is good news for us today. This is vintage Ferguson-a sensitive reading of the biblical text in light of the whole Bible, with consummate focus on our Savior and His work. Whether you're familiar with this passage or have never read it before, this book is sure to be encouraging, edifying, and enlightening. Pick up this book-you'll be glad you did!"
--Dr. Brandon D. Crowe, Professor of New Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

"Sinclair Ferguson is one of the few writers in this or any genera-tion of whom it can be said that anything he writes is a must-read. In this book, he transports us to the upper room with Jesus to witness the last hours of His earthly ministry. You will feel like you are there, sitting next to the Lord, savoring the meal, hear-ing the anxious inquires of the disciples, listening to words that will change everything. Whether you have walked with Christ for many years or have just become a Christian, Dr. Ferguson's years of meditation on these chapters, combined with his unequaled pastoral wisdom, make these pages uniquely accessible to a variety of readers. It is the finest nontechnical treatment of John 13-17 in print."
--Dr. Gabriel N.E. Fluhrer, Associate minister of discipleship, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, S.C.
