Since preaching is God’s ordained means of disseminating truth, it is vital that Bible teachers preach well and congregations listen well. This study of Jesus Christ’s preaching will assist both the preacher and the congregation in their quests to honor the Lord with their respective responsibilities in worship. While there are many definitions and descriptions of preaching today, preaching like Jesus must be the unchanging standard for all who dare teach the Bible. Preaching fads come and go, yet the manner and method of the Lord’s preaching is always relevant, right and worthy to be emulated.

What you win them with is what you win them to. Preaching is God’s way of proclaiming the foolishness of the gospel to the weak and despised, all to His own glory. The world will always despise preaching, but when the church likewise questions God’s wisdom and starts using alternatives, a major problem exists. Abendroth calls his readers back to the pre-eminence of preaching through the example of the Lord Himself. Encouraging and challenging.

I have many books on preaching. Not one of them is like this one. Packed with truth which every preacher needs to know, full of brilliant insights into the preaching ministry of Jesus Christ and enough to revitalize preaching from the perfect example of Jesus Christ, I will recommend and promote this book whenever and wherever I can. It is bound to make its mark on the lives of preachers who read it and then through them in entire congregations when they listen to preaching the kind of which is taught by Mike Abendroth.
