Grieving with Hope: Selected Aspects of Funeral Sermons

  • Author: Albin Masarík
  • Publisher: Langham
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 179

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

In this well-researched work, Dr. Albín Masarik explores various features of funeral sermons arising from their unique context and homiletic process. While funeral sermons are an important element in pastoral care of churches and the wider community, theological reflection of this weighty responsibility can be hard to find. Addressing the definition of a funeral sermon, their categorization, purpose and context, this book brings clarity to inform the exercise of preaching a funeral sermon and help pastors and theologians grapple with how to best shepherd their flock and exalt our saviour in the midst of bereavement.

It’s OK to Be Not OK: Preaching the Lament Psalms

  • Author: Federico Villanueva
  • Publisher: Langham
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 155

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

How often have you seen a friend and been greeted with “How are you?” Almost always our automatic response is “Fine thank you” regardless of whether it’s true.

We proclaim in church services that “God is good all the time . . . All the time God is good,” but there are often times when we feel that life is just unfair and ask God, “Why?”

The uplifting songs and victorious testimonies of our church gatherings are frequently difficult to identify within the midst of the suffering and hardship of people’s daily lives, yet there is all too often no room for our “not-OK” experiences in our Christian communities. This is especially true for pastors and leaders who are required to always be strong and OK all the time.

But the songs of lament in the Psalms paint a very different picture of understanding life and how human beings express themselves to God. Dr. Rico Villanueva uses these Scriptures to teach us that in the presence of God, there is room to be “not-OK” and that our negative experiences don’t have to be ignored. This book challenges us to confront our struggles and questions instead of denying them. Most importantly, the author invites us to bring all of ourselves into the presence of God and the community of faith. For it is through our experiences and sharing them with God and his church that we grow in intimacy with God and our relationships with one another.

Live, Listen, Tell: The Art of Preaching

  • Author: Geoff New
  • Publisher: Langham
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 78

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

Live, Listen, Tell: The Art of Preaching will guide readers through the process of sermon preparation and hearing God through the Scriptures. By drawing on life and Scripture, especially the road to Emmaus narrative in Luke 24, the author illustrates that preachers are living a story, listening to a story and telling a story. This book encourages you to pay particular attention, through prayer, to the story to which you are listening. Geoff New shows how to prayerfully listen to the Scriptures in preaching preparation and how the fruit of this leads to a sermon – and impacts the way we live, listen and tell.

Pastoral Preaching: Building a People for God

  • Author: Conrad Mbewe
  • Publisher: Langham
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 205

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

Church congregations are not being given a comprehensive, biblical understanding of the faith. Drawing on his own experience as a pastor in Zambia, Conrad Mbewe tackles issues such as the content of pastoral preaching, how pastoral preaching relates to church life, finding the time to prepare pastoral sermons, and dealing with discouragement. Throughout the book, it is clear that the authors conviction is to see preachers grow strong churches, to build a people for God.

The Preacher’s Portrait: Five New Testament Word Studies

  • Author: John R.W. Stott
  • Edition: Abridged and revised
  • Publisher: Langham
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 92

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

In this updated version of The Preacher’s Portrait John Stott presents a portrait of the ideal preacher; a portrait painted by the hand of God himself on the broad canvas of the New Testament. Through studying five roles of a preacher—steward, herald, witness, father, and servant—Stott illustrates God’s ideal for a preacher’s character, message and purpose.

Preaching That Comes Alive: Delivering a Word from the Lord

  • Author: Maggie Low
  • Publisher: Langham
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 285

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

People go to church every Sunday hoping to hear a life-giving word from the Lord but often find that they have to make do with either the dry crust of cognitive sermons or the empty calories of emotional exhortations. This book provides preachers with the tools to feed their flock with hearty sustenance.

Using real-life sermon examples from across Asia that reflect issues facing Asian Christians, Maggie Low builds a picture of a sermon as a body, taking you step-by-step through guidelines for what this body needs to come alive. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced preacher, you will learn to preach more confidently and relevantly through this skillful integration of biblical theology, homiletical theory, spirituality, and communication skills.

Preaching cannot deliver life unless preachers themselves listen to the Word of Life. Dr. Low guides the reader to exegete the Scriptures and to listen to God personally so that they can deliver a life-giving word to the hearers.

What Angels Long to Read: Reading and Preaching the New Testament

  • Author: Mark Meynell
  • Publisher: Langham
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 254

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

Peter wrote to encourage and embolden isolated and vulnerable believers. His timeless words have consoled and challenged ever since and show how the eternal gospel is true even in the toughest circumstances. The last sentence in 1 Peter 1:12 profoundly illustrates that the experience we have each time we open up the Scriptures is nothing less than a heavenly privilege, a privilege that angels do not have but would love to!

Mark Meynell skilfully brings the New Testament to life. Guiding the reader through preaching the Gospels and Acts, the Parables, the Letters and Revelation, as well as using a host of worked examples, sample sermons and personal exercises, this book offers ideas and approaches to stretch even the most seasoned preachers.
