The Call of the King is straight-forward. It deals with real life. It is intended to inform and challenge readers with the word of Jesus in a format helpful both to individuals and to Bible study groups. In this volume, Williams addresses the most important questions on the book of Matthew: What did our Lord Jesus Christ say? What does he want his followers to understand? To do? Most importantly—to be? The Call of the King consists of thirty-three studies based on Jesus’ major addresses as Matthew records them. Each study begins with one or two preparatory ideas; then proceeds in a question-and-answer format.
