The authors ask the poignant question: What is the point to preaching? There are so many agendas competing for pulpit time these days, it can be easy to forget the exact purpose of one’s calling to preach, which is to proclaim God’s salvation through Jesus who died and is now resurrected. Preaching Evangelistically looks at the different elements of gospel preaching and how they are best used to effectively proclaim Jesus. These elements include: sermon setting, text selection, preparation, preaching with biblical authority, giving an invitation, and “Hiding behind the Cross as You Preach.” The book also provides examples of evangelistic sermons from selected preachers. Fasol, one of the co-writers, states, “The purpose of our book is to provide information on preaching evangelistically with integrity, with biblical accuracy, with appeal to contemporary listeners, and absolutely for the glory of God.”
