A collection of advice on preaching, this volume discusses:
This resource is a comprehensive overview of how to make preaching memorable and accurate, and it helps the congregation to understand God's Word in a biblically literate way.
This will be an extremely helpful book for all who preach and for seminaries/colleges. It is not a book about style but about how to extract the best from the Word of God when delivering a message. The speakers are all able preachers and share their ideas about how to make the Bible relevant to the hearers.
“Christian preaching is the event of God himself bringing to an audience a Bible-based, Christ-related, life-impacting message of instruction and direction through the words of a spokesperson.” (Page 28)
“We live in days in which the credibility of faithful biblical preaching is radically doubted, not only outside but inside the churches as well.” (Page 30)
“, topical as distinct from textual preaching has become common in North America (less so in Britain and elsewhere)” (Page 32)
“ low expectations become self-fulfilling. Where little is expected from sermons, little is received” (Page 32)
“the prevalence of non-preaching in Christian pulpits has eroded awareness of what true preaching is.” (Page 30)
In (Preaching the Living Word) there is the teaching of Scripture and its timely application to the contemporary world and church.
