According to Robert Mounce, the preacher occupies a position of unrivaled significance in the life and destiny of his fellow human beings. As A.M. Hunter says in the foreword, “the preached gospel which the first heralds of Christ proclaimed to the great pagan world of their day . . . runs, like a golden thread, through the whole New Testament.”

Mounce introduces his study with a survey of related terms as they appear in classical Greek, then shows the role of the herald in the life and culture of the Old Testament through a careful investigation of the Septuagint. He analyzes the nature of preaching in the New Testament and demonstrates that true Christian preaching has always been God’s means of offering grace to humanity.
