A fusion of biblical hermeneutics and homiletics, this thorough and well-researched book offers a holistic contemporary approach to the interpretation and preaching of biblical texts, using scholarly tools and focusing on literary features. Greidanus develops hermeneutical and homiletical principles and then applies them to four specific genres: Hebrew narratives, prophetic literature, the Gospels, and the Epistles.

Preachers seeking a solid and helpful consideration of hermeneutics in service of preaching will greet The Modern Preacher and the Ancient Text with great enthusiasm. Sidney Greidanus has produced one of those rare volumes which should be read by all preachers who take the task of interpretation and proclamation with great seriousness.

Preaching

For students who desire to see how their theological studies can come together at the point of preaching or for pastors who feel the need for an update on the biblical, hermeneutical, and homiletical currents of our day, this volume is enlightening and useful.

Preaching Christ from Ecclesiastes: Foundations for Expository Sermons

  • Pages: 360

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

As Sidney Greidanus points out, the biblical book of Ecclesiastes is especially relevant for our contemporary culture because it confronts such secular enticements as materialism, hedonism, cut-throat competition, and self-sufficiency. But how can preachers best convey the ancient Teacher’s message to congregations today? A respected expert in both hermeneutics and homiletics, Greidanus provides readers with the foundations for a series of expository sermons on Ecclesiastes. He walks students and preachers through the steps from text to sermon for all of the book’s fifteen major literary units, explores various ways to move from Ecclesiastes to Jesus Christ in the New Testament, and offers insightful expositions that help the preacher in sermon production but omit the theoretical and often impractical discussions in many commentaries.

One of those rare volumes that should be read by all preachers who take the task of interpretation and proclamation with great seriousness.

Preaching

[This book] will help preachers develop homiletical muscle memory that will transform them from workmen into artisans.

Preaching Christ from Daniel: Foundations for Expository Sermons

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In Preaching Christ from Daniel Sidney Greidanus shows preachers and teachers how to prepare expository messages from the six narratives and four visions in the book of Daniel. Using the most up-to-date biblical scholarship, Greidanus addresses foundational issues such as the date of composition, the author(s) and original audience of the book, its overall message and goal, and various ways of preaching Christ from Daniel. Throughout his book Greidanus puts God’s sovereignty, providence, and coming kingdom front and center.

Each chapter contains building blocks for constructing expository sermons and lessons, including useful information on the context, themes, and goals of each literary unit, links between Daniel and the New Testament, and how to formulate a sermon theme and goal.

Preaching from the Old Testament is crucial for the church but often neglected. After all, it is difficult to know how the Old Testament relates to the gospel of Christ, which is the heart of the Christian faith. Many pastors struggle with the Old Testament, and seminaries often do an inadequate job preparing their students in this area. For those who need help, Sidney Greidanus is an excellent teacher as he exposits the book of Daniel and carefully guides us to proper preaching of its important message, showing us how it leads us to Jesus Christ.

  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 391

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Arguing for the need both to preach Christ in every sermon and to preach regularly from the Old Testament, Sidney Greidanus develops a christocentric method that will help preachers do both simultaneously. Greidanus challenges Old Testament scholars to broaden their focus and to understand the Old Testament not only in its own historical context but also in the context of the New Testament. Suggesting specific steps and providing concrete examples, this volume provides a practical guide for preaching Christ from the Old Testament.

Sidney Greidanus makes a major contribution to modern preaching with this work. . . . A great resource tool for sermon preparation. . . . Greidanus achieves a scholarly work, but one that is filled with great insight and integrity.

Ministries Today

[This book} has wonderful insights and is written in a splendid way. This would be the kind of book most pastors ought to read. It gives a clear theological outline of a problem that plagues the modern church—failure to give credence to the Scripture from which Jesus himself preached.

    The books are about preaching Christ from the Old Testament. I didn't find anything in the sample pages that gives me any idea how the author does this. So while I am interested in this set, I'm not getting enough information to spend $100 on this When sample pages are chosen, are they selected at random or does someone check to see if the samples give someone a good idea of what they are going to get. I find this often happens with commentaries. A person buying a commentary wants to see how the text is handled and not so much about introductory matters.
