Overview

Arguing for the need both to preach Christ in every sermon and to preach regularly from the Old Testament, Sidney Greidanus develops a christocentric method that will help preachers do both simultaneously. Greidanus challenges Old Testament scholars to broaden their focus and to understand the Old Testament not only in its own historical context but also in the context of the New Testament. Suggesting specific steps and providing concrete examples, this volume provides a practical guide for preaching Christ from the Old Testament.

[This book} has wonderful insights and is written in a splendid way. This would be the kind of book most pastors ought to read. It gives a clear theological outline of a problem that plagues the modern church—failure to give credence to the Scripture from which Jesus himself preached.

    Best preaching text on the Old Testament that I own. He gives a brief overview of preaching throughout the centuries (an entire book could be written on that subject), and then gives his hermeneutic. He gives seven different ways to preach Christ from the OT. 1) Redemptive-Historical; 2) Promise-fulfillment; 3) Typology; 4) Analogy; 5) Longitudinal theme; 6) Contrast; 7) New Testament reference. This book has really shaped my preaching and allowed me to preach Christ consistently and intelligently from each passage of Scripture.
