Christ-Centered Preaching: Redeeming the Expository Sermon, Third Edition

  • Author: Bryan Chapell
  • Publisher: Baker Academic
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 442

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

In this complete guide to expository preaching, Bryan Chapell teaches the basics of preparation, organization, and delivery—the trademarks of great preaching. This new edition of a bestselling resource, now updated and revised throughout, shows how Chapell's case for expository preaching reaches twenty-first-century readers.

Bryan Chapell's Christ-Centered Preaching was a pathbreaking book in 1994. While some writers had been urging preachers to treat every text within the redemptive flow of biblical history--always culminating in Jesus Christ--this book was the first one to tell us how to do it. Though one of many classic manuals on expository preaching, it has always been the most detailed, analytic, practical, and comprehensive of them all. This third edition has been updated to address current issues and challenges preachers face and includes many new resources, only making this volume more invaluable.

Integrative Preaching offers a compelling conceptual model of biblical preaching that helps preachers better understand what they are doing when they step into the pulpit. Kenton Anderson, an experienced preacher and professor, explicates the integrative preaching model he has been honing for a lifetime. His fresh, holistic approach aims at whole-person transformation and is well suited for contemporary listeners. The book includes theoretical underpinnings and practical guidance to both instruct students and motivate working preachers. Sample sermons show how the model unfolds in actual sermons.

Integration is all about bringing things together. In his book Integrative Preaching, Kent Anderson brings together fascinating insights, drawn from years of experience as a preacher and teacher, in crafting a sermon model that is both cross-centered and transformative in nature. This is a book that will be of value to both novice preachers and veteran communicators.

Preaching Jesus Christ Today: Six Questions for Moving from Scripture to Sermon

  • Author: Annette Brownlee
  • Publisher: Baker Academic
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 208

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

This book approaches preaching as a theological practice and a spiritual discipline in a way that is engaging, straightforward, and highly usable for busy preachers. Bringing to bear almost three decades of practical experience in the pulpit and the classroom, Annette Brownlee explores six questions to help preachers listen to Scripture, move from text to interpretation for weekly sermon preparation, and understand the theological significance of the sermon. Each chapter explains one of the Six Questions of Sermon Preparation, provides numerous examples and illustrations, and contains theological reflections. The final chapter includes sample sermons, which put the Six Question method into practice.

Drawing on the work of Lindbeck and Frei, Brownlee not only provides a substantive account of what the Holy Spirit does in and through the sermon but also develops what I can only describe as exercises to help preachers get out of the way of the Spirit. I cannot imagine a better book for teaching seminarians not only the 'what' but also the 'how' of preaching. The book is invaluable for those who have been overdetermined by theories of preaching.

Preaching with Cultural Intelligence: Understanding the People Who Hear Our Sermons

  • Author: Matthew D. Kim
  • Publisher: Baker Academic
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 288

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

To preach effectively in today's world, preachers need cultural intelligence. They must build bridges between listeners who come from various denominations, ethnicities, genders, locations, religious backgrounds, and more. Experienced preacher and teacher Matthew Kim provides a step-by-step template for cross-cultural hermeneutics and homiletics, equipping preachers to reach their varied listeners in the church and beyond. Each chapter includes questions for individual thought or group discussion. The book also includes helpful diagrams and images, a sample sermon, and appendixes for exegeting listeners and for exploring cultural differences.

Matthew Kim writes with the sensitivity of a pastor, the experience of a multicultural minority person, and the knowledge of an experienced homiletics professor—a wonderful combination for helping us think through what is needed to bring knowledge of hermeneutics, humans, and homiletics to bear on the task of preaching in a world of rapidly integrating cultures.

The Worlds of the Preacher: Navigating Biblical, Cultural, and Personal Contexts

  • Author: Scott M. Gibson
  • Publisher: Baker Academic
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 192

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

Building on Haddon Robinson's philosophical approach to preaching, this book brings together accomplished evangelical preachers and teachers to help students and pastors understand the worlds--biblical, cultural, and personal--that influence and impact their preaching. The contributors explore the various inner and outer worlds in which a preacher functions with the goal of helping preachers sharpen their craft. Foreword by Bryan Chapell.

Once in a while God drops someone into our experience who upends our assumptions about life and ministry. For me that was Haddon Robinson. We worked together closely for thirty-three years--at two seminaries and on the radio as coteachers for Discover the Word. In this book, Scott Gibson and his coauthors accurately capture the many-faceted contributions Haddon has made in the field of homiletics. Such a book could simply be a paean to its subject, but not so in this case. Each author explores some essential part of Haddon's philosophy of preaching and brings the reader concrete help in forming and delivering sermons relevant to today's world. I highly recommend this book to preachers everywhere for its practical help in crafting sermons that touch and change listeners' understanding of God's Word. Haddon's legacy is in good hands.
