Preaching the Living Word


Christian Focus 1999

A collection of advice on preaching, this volume discusses:

  • How to put preaching back to its position of centrality in the church
  • How to make preaching more effective
  • How to structure Bible exposition
  • How to preach from different parts of scripture
  • How to preach doctrine

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.
