Welcome to the website of the Christ-Centered Life. My name is David Broderick and I am a Scottish Baptist pastor and author. I live in Edinburgh, Scotland, where I am an elder of, and based in, City Gates Baptist Church and you can get more information about City Gates Church from their own website. The City Gates building is above the shops at Barnton Cross, in the west of Edinburgh.
There is a lot of content of varying style on this website and more content is being added on a regular basis, especially on the pages under “Resources” and on the “Audio” page (under “Media”) where you can listen to recordings of teaching. On the website, you can also read about people who are involved in or connected to the Christ-Centered Life ministry in one way or another. That “People” section will be expanding over the next few months.
Please explore the Christ-Centered Life website and you cancontact meif you wish to respond by making comments or asking questions. You can also email me directly at email@example.com if you wish to use your own email client. Once again, you are welcome here, and thank you for visiting the Christ-Centered Life website today.
My First Published Book
DEEP CALLS TO DEEP
My first published book, ‘The Christ-Centered Life: Deep Calls To Deep” tells of how I began the long journey to becoming Christ-centered, and how I then came to live life every day from the Christ-centered worldview. It is a worldview that recognizes and understands the Jewish foundation of the Christian faith.
The Christ-Centered Life proclaims that Jesus the Christ is indeed the supreme Lord of all, despite what may appear to be to the contrary. An intimate relationship with the Creator God through Jesus the Christ is for everyone – regardless of age, education, colour, creed, or any other label that may be used to differentiate between human beings. No-one is excluded from knowing God intimately for themselves.
On this website you can also read about my journey from pastor to published author and you can know something of my own life journey as I came to self-publish “The Christ-Centered Life: Deep Calls To Deep” in 2013 in order to bring the Christ-centered material to a world-wide audience who could then access that material without the need to travel to meetings.
“The Christ-Centered Life: Deep Calls To Deep” presents a radically different way to live than many Christians will have experienced. The book will certainly challenge your long-held ways of thinking, it will certainly shake your established patterns of believing, and it will certainly question your cherished methods of doing. Above all, it will teach you never to assume anything, but rather to explore for yourself.
Deep surely calls to deep in these days. Hear the call to a deeper and more intimate relationship with God in Christ for you personally. If you yearn for that deeper experience of Christ, this book will will help you to grow (and go on growing) into that deeper relationship with him as you grow (and go on growing) to see and know God from a Christ-centered perspective. You can read more details about the book here.
