Overview

The third volume in Hughes Oliphant Old’s multivolume history of the reading and preaching of Scripture focuses on the Middle Ages. Surveying the development of preaching over the span of a thousand years, Old explores the preachers of sixth-century Byzantium, the church’s mission to the barbarians, the preaching of the gospel during Charlemagne’s Holy Roman Empire, the era of the great monastic orders, and the prophetic preachers of Renaissance Italy. Giving special attention to preaching greats like Bernard of Clairvaux and Bonaventure, Old also provides extensive analyses of several sermons from the period in order to show how the church presented the gospel in this little-known era.

Praise for the Print Edition

Studying these volumes is like walking around a great cathedral [. . . ] every section, however distinctive, unites in a grand design whose aim is to restore preaching to its rightful place. This multivolume work is easily the best history of preaching ever written, one that will serve generations of those whose faith comes by hearing.

—William Edgar, Westminster Theological Seminary

I consider this series by Old to be most timely. The current unfortunate trend to dumb down worship with less Scripture and with popular topical sermons needs the corrective offered in this comprehensive and readable work.

—Robert Webber, Northern Baptist Theological Seminary
