We often reflect on what Jesus did for our salvation in the past and look forward in hope to what he will do when he returns. However, we tend not to give so much attention to what he is doing now. Gary Brady attempts to make good that gap in our thinking in this most helpful book.
    

He writes with clarity and simplicity, but there is nothing trite about this work. His treatment is characterised by theological depth, biblical accuracy and sound pastoral wisdom. The insights of a wide range of writers are called upon to help us better understand the subject in hand.
    

The author begins by explaining clearly who he is talking about — the Jesus who is fully God and fully man in one person. It is as the God-Man, exalted to the right hand of the Father, that Jesus carries out his present work on our behalf.
    

At the heart of the book is an exploration of the multifaceted work that Jesus is doing now. He is our prophet, priest and king, who applies the salvation he accomplished while here on earth by the power of the Holy Spirit. Special attention is given to Christ’s intercessory ministry.
    

In a final chapter, Brady asks, ‘How should we live in the light of these facts?’ Here the reader is challenged to live for Christ’s glory and be encouraged by the fact that our ascended Lord will protect us from our foes.
    

Knowing that he ever lives to make intercession for us should embolden us to draw near to the throne of grace in prayer. Taking time to meditate on what Jesus is doing now should move us to worship him and inflame our longing for his return. With that in mind, this book is highly recommended.
