Overview

In this volume, Hughes Oliphant Old begins his survey of the history of preaching by discussing the roots of the Christian ministry of the Word in the worship of Israel. He then examines the preaching of Christ, the Apostles, and early church leaders.

Praise for the Print Edition

Ecumenical in breadth, magisterial in authority, and pastoral in intentionality, Old's multivolume history of preaching is a landmark in American intellectual history. Old views preaching as an act of worship, and his own prodigious scholarship in service to God. Old has bequeathed to the church of the twenty-first century the definite history of preaching, a spiritual feast for scholars and preachers alike for years and years to come.

—James F. Kay, Princeton Theological Seminary

This volume's study of Scripture reading and preaching in the biblical period speaks a significant word for the church of the twenty-first century. Worship needs more Scripture and strong preaching. Old Calls us back to a tradition that has the power to reshpe our worship and restore preaching that is both biblical and relevant.

—Robert Webber, Wheaton College
