I normally don't listen to podcast preachers as they seem to be more concerned about popularity and the latest and greatest in cultural trends. Alistair Begg, however, is concerned first and foremost with pleasing God and obediently teaching His word as accurately as one can without reservation. Begg's teaching focuses on the needs of the flock and not on building up his own ego. I wish more teachers would let go of their own personal agendas and simply teach what God's word says.
I have listened to other bible teachers on the internet, but always return to Alistair Begg. His genuine approach and understanding of the true nature of the bible's message continues to help me understand who I need to be as an adult Christian. I always come away feeling challenged, yet closer to understanding the LORD's will. I always look forward to his next sermon.
One of the few residual solid bible teaching ministries of today. Teaches the whole counsel of God clearly, unashamedly, and accurately.
Truth for Life and Alistar Begg offer, at no charge, all sermons and they are very good. Truth for Life has been one of the biggest blessings in my Chrsitian walk. This is the kind of ministry I feel completely confident in giving to.
The ministry of Alistair Begg is exemplary. The teaching is humble, straightforward and comprehensive. Christians can really learn some beautiful spiritual truths and will find that growth will come as they listen to the teaching of Dr. Begg if they allow their hearts and minds to be opened to these deep messages. I have recommended this ministry to everyone I know. God bless you, Alistair Begg as you allow The Lord Jesus to use you to bring the Gospel to people everywhere. Praise God for this blessed ministry.
I started listening to truth for life about 3 years ago, and the teachings of Alister Begg are so personal and applicable to daily life that I can't get enough. I listen to sermon archives whenever I have free time and I am never disappointed. His methodical exposition of scripture is true teaching from God's Word. The call to be a pastor on my own life has been deepened and strengthened by the sound teaching I hear on Truth For Life. It's so comprehensive on any and every aspect of life that the fundamental and evangelical alike can find wisdom and growth within the pages of scripture. I love what God is doing to me through this radio and online program.
I have learned more about the Bible in the years I have listened to Truth for Life than I ever learned from my formal training. This is a ministry that takes the Bible seriously in all its parts and teachings. They make their messages and articles accessible in every way, which allows me to listen to both old and new messages almost anywhere. The ministry helps me to focus on what the Bible says much more consistently than I might other wise because I can take it with me. So I listen when I am in my car or at home and almost anywhere else on my phone. Seriously Biblical.
I began listening to Alistair about 15 years ago, and quickly became a Truth Partner. My wife and I have supported this ministry nonstop since joining. It is abundantly clear to us that God has anointed Alistair with an incredible gift to articulate the Word. We have grown through his teaching over the years, and routinely thank the Lord for bringing Alistair into our lives. I listen to a lot of good teaching pastors on the radio, but Alistair is the best in my humble opinion.
When you become serious about your life in Christ you want to dig in and learn. Truth for Life offers what must equal a lifetime of dedicated study from the gifted Alistair Begg at no cost. I'm on a limited budget but because of his generous attitude with this wealth of teaching, I'm able to augment my personal Bible study and church attendance whereby I mature ever increasingly and with great pleasure. Thank you, Truth for Life.
Pastor Begg, is truly a man after Gods heart. I'm a pastor myself and I listen to Truth For Life as part of my morning routine. I'm from a Pentecostal background and through the teaching of Pastor Begg and his willingness to teach clearly from scripture, has changed how I now approach Gods word. By listen to Alister, I have found many errors in the denomination in which I belong, but God has spoken to me not to leave , but to feed His sheep from His vineyard which is His word. Truth For Life thanks for changing my life.
I have listened to Alistair Begg on the radio for years. I attended a church in NC regularly and served but always found myself listening to Pastor Begg. His sound teaching helped me grow as a new believer. Through the years as I experienced life's rough spots, even to the point of leaving the church I attended for over 25 yrs I turned to Alistair's sermons for guidance and help. His sound teaching helped me through a season of deep depression. The proof of his ministry to me was when I needed help for my child who lived in OH. I called and the church secretary sent help to her. I travelled from NC to OH attended Parkside Church several times and always felt welcome. I sought help while dealing with a crisis situation while I was in OH. They helped me and ministered to me. I love this ministry. Pastor Begg teaches and the church does what Christ has called us to do. Gods grace in action!!
I have enjoyed in partaking in this ministry. Each day I listen to Truth for Life as part of my Bible study. Usually I read and listen to Allister Begg for I have found this ministry to have one the best foundational bible studies. I feel blessed that this ministry is available not only for me but too so many. I am blessed to be able to be a Truth partner and I reflect on the letters from the desk of Allister Begg. I also have recommended this ministry to those that God has allowed me to witness. I pray for all those in need as well as those who minister the true word of God so they may be a source for their needs.
Please Holy Father place your hand apon this ministry of your word and all those who help. Amen
I love listing to Mr Begg. He teaches the Bible without pulling any punches and never apologizes for his candor. This ministry has helped me greatly in growing my walk with Christ.
Our family has been sustained through the clear teaching of the Word of God, by Allistair Begg. He is indeed a herald....taking the message of the King, and pronouncing it to His subjects. We have been through many dangers, toils and snares in the past years with unemployment, car accidents with bodily injuries and permanent sufferings, family break ups, and shunning from our church. What a blessed relief to know we have a Brother in The Lord who so faithfully and diligently gives his all to his call. God's Word is our spiritual food for living this life, keeping us strong enough to continue to love and serve where we can, uplifting our broken hearts, and something we cling to often. We can't thank Allistair enough, but we hope that we are also serving with the same energy and diligence. It is wonderful to know that if we don't have the opportunity to meet this side of heaven, we will together cast our crowns before our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I believe Alistair Begg has truly been called by God to lead people into the truth and I have used truth for life to build me up in my faith, my belief and my trust in my relationship with the Lord and if it wasn't for truth for life- I would not be getting fed. Thank you for your passion that drives me Deeper to know our God & his truth!
Truth for Life Ministries with Alistair Begg has truly been a blessing in my life and continues to be. I throughly enjoy listening to him preach directly from the Word of God and the keen insights he brings forth. He teaches in such a way that is understandable and challenges us as believers to walk as Jesus walked, to love as Jesus loves, and to live as Jesus lived. I am so very thankful for his ministry and even more so as these recent weeks of teaching have proven so insightful & helpful to me in my current season.
Not enough good things can be said about Truth for Life. It's one of the best Bible teaching programs I listen to. If it were food for the day, you'd never go away hungry. I thank God for men of God who remain faithful to Jesus, His gospel and His people and that's what Truth for Life is all about.
Truth for life is without a doubt a life changing ministry. Alistair Begg, has to be one of the best solid expository bible teachers out there. Always staying true to the word and as a result becoming a true a blessing to those of us who benefit from his ministry.
Truth for Life is without a doubt the greatest blessing of my day - everyday. The archived programs are a wonderful source for facing personal challenges. Alistair Begg is an expository teacher able to translate scripture to life applications. He is common sense, warm, humorous and above all recognizes the holiness of God. He reminds people to take the things of God very seriously. I thank God for this ministry everyday and encourage others to listen for the uplifting wisdom Alistair shares.
The ministry name says it all! Gods life giving truth through the voice of this great minister of the gospel!
When I hear real expository preaching of God's Word, I understand what gives people the drive and courage to defy fear and violence to convert to the Lord Jesus Christ. You don't get a lot of that these days, either in media or in local churches.
For several years now, I have had more "ah-ha!", inspiring moments than I can count, listening on the radio to the expository preaching of Alistair Begg. The dots connect when you hear the Word spoken and unpacked appropriately. He articulates clearly and simply big issues and themes.
He is my go-to person when directing people to someone to listen to outside of their local church services. These days, you can't just point the unsaved or your own family and friends to just anyone who says they're a preacher; and there are too many misleading 'prophecies' and opinions being passed off as God's message to us.
His radio broadcasts, internet audio ministry, and his library are significant resources for non-Christian and Christian, alike.
The lessons that Alistair offers through Truth for Life free-of-charge have inspired me to put on the full armor of God. Hearing the Word spoken by the Spirit strengthens me to live more and more to His glory.
Alistair has blessed my family for many years. His expository teaching is simply presented yet deeply knowledgeable and built on God's holy word. My two sets of twins, ages 5 and 6 years old love learning from listening to Mr. Begg’s humble sermons.
If you can the truth this is where you'll find it. With clarity and insights that will humble, uplift and encourage you.
Truth For Life continues to demonstrate its commitment to spreading the Gospel. I am most appreciative of Alistair's willingness to always end with CHRIST. He truly realizes that by preaching Christ's love and finished work on behalf of sinners, it will genuinely constrain believers to serve in newness of spirit. The Scottish accent, and more importantly the message, makes him a modern day "marrow man" - a legal spirit you will not find in this man! May God continue to pour out His spirit on all who are involved with TFL. Sole Fide.
TFL is a ministry that spreads the good news of Jesus Christ to many people beyond the boundaries of Cleveland. Alistair Begg's teaching is clear and biblically based. I trust this ministry to use all donations wisely and effectively.
I apprciate the fact Truth for Life and Alistair Begg teach directly from God's Word. God has used TFL as a tool to help me understand God's Word can grow in my relationship with Jesus Christ.
TFL is a great ministry! As a person who attends Parkside, it is helpful to see all of the resources available, that I can read for myself, and share with friends who could really use what TFL had to offer. I also really enjoy the fact that I can download TFL's app and listen to Alistair speak on the go, whether it's a sermon I've missed, or a series he's working on around the country. Either way, I love this ministry, and am always sharing it with friends and family to try out.
Alistiar Begg's teaching ministry Truth for Life is the only media based ministry that offers total transparency. The itemized tax returns are available for download! Plus the entire catalog of sermon series is available for free download. What an incredible step of faith this must have been. But God has been faithful and blessed them greatly. I am able to listen on Moody Radio, online, or with an easy to navigate app for my iphone which allows for storing sermons which I listen in the evening with my wife. 11 Timothy 2:3-4 3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. Pastor Begg will not preach the bible in order ti make you feel good about yourself. He will preach the truth in order for you you to be able to find salvation. In many of today's feel good, Gospel Lite teachings, the doctrine of repentance is overlooked. Pastor Begg is the real deal who can be compared to the likes of Charles Spurgeon of John Stott.
I am so thankful for this ministry. Pastor Begg is gifted at communicating the truth from God's Word. He gives his message clearly and he has a wonderful sense of humor.
Review from CharityNavigator
TFL's radio ministry found me recently and impacted me for the better. I became a truth partner this past month, because I felt compelled and called to support TFL through prayer and donation, as Alistair has made an immensely positive impact on my spiritual growth in that short time. From his blog to his daily bible reading emails, I have gleaned an exceptional insight into biblical truth and understanding. I especially enjoy listening to his sermons, which are steeped in Truth and Light! Alistair has an enjoyable speaking style that is almost conversational, rather than preachy... his message is relevant, direct and honest... there is no sugar-coated-easy-to-hear-mesage... Alistair speaks God's word as it is given to us through scripture, not the all too often "ala carte" pick and choose message that many people want to hear, so they justify their own sin. At times, I feel that Alistair is talking directly to me! My church's pastor is similarily blessed in being able to relate on such a spiritually personal level. TFL also provides an exceptional number of audio, visual and both digital and printed literary works on there website... which us provided at very low cost or free. I have also recently taken advantage of TFL's Android app, which is exceptionally useful for compiling Alistair's blog, devotionals and audio sermons in one simple, effective and highly mobile platform!
Review from CharityNavigator
I have been listening for truth for life with Alistair Begg for 4 years now, it's the first thing I do in the morning is I get up and go download the sermon to my mp3 player, the 30 minute broadcast is simply a wonderful tool I use to get more in depth with my Bible study. I find myself quoting Mr. Begg though out the day and even try it with his wonderful accent. I have to say I learn something new everyday about the LORD and I find myself repenting from things Mr. Begg speaks on that are convicting to my soul. I will continue to listen all the days of my life. I am grateful for this ministry and the commitment for preaching God's word. This ministry has blessed not only me but also my family.
