Christ-Centered Sermons: Models of Redemptive Preaching

ISBN: 9781441257529



Highly regarded preacher and teacher Bryan Chapell shows readers how he has prepared expository sermons according to the principles he developed in his bestselling Christ-Centered Preaching. This companion volume provides concrete examples of Chapell’s approach in various types of sermons and genres of the Bible. Not only do the example sermons demonstrate different approaches—they’re also analyzed for pedagogical purposes, helping readers move from theory to practice. In essence, the book allows students and preachers to look over Chapell’s shoulder as he prepares these messages to learn how to construct their own expository sermons that communicate grace and truth from both the Old and New Testaments.
