Jesus - the Center of it all

I am reading "Worship, Community and the Triune God of Grace" by James B. Torrance (Intervarsity Press, 1996). I was struck immediately by J.B.'s words in the preface:
When we see that the worship and mission of the church are the gift of participating through the Holy Spirit in the incarnate Son's communion with the Father and the Son's mission from the father to the world, that the unique center of the Bible is Jesus Christ...then the doctrines of the Trinity, the incarnation, the atonement, the ministry of the Spirit, Church and sacraments, our understanding of the kingdom, our anthropology and eschatology, all unfold from that center.
