Cancer. Suicide. The death of a child. As much as we wish we could avoid tragedies like these, eventually they will strike your church community. When they do, pastors must be ready to offer help by communicating the life-changing message of the gospel in a way that offers hope, truth, and encouragement during these difficult circumstances. Those asked to preach in the midst of tragedy know the anxiety of trying to say appropriate things from Gods Word that will comfort and strengthen Gods people when emotions and faith are stretched thin. This indispensable resource helps pastors prepare sermons in the face of tragedies by providing suggestions for how to approach different kinds of tragedy, as well as insight into how to handle the theological challenges of human suffering. Each topic provides a specific description of the context of the tragedy, the key concerns that need to be addressed in the message, and an outline of the approach taken in the sample sermon that follows. Topics addressed include: abortion; abuse; responding to national and community tragedies; the death of a child; death due to cancer and prolonged sickness; death due to drunk driving; drug abuse; and suicide. Bryan Chapell, author of Christ-Centered Preaching, has gathered together messages from some of todays most trusted Christian leaders including: John Piper, Tim Keller, Michael Horton, Jack Collins, Dan Doriani, Jerram Barrs, Mike Khandjian, Robert Rayburn, Wilson Benton, Bob Flayhart, and George Robertson. Each chapter provides you with the resources you need to communicate the life-giving hope of the gospel in the midst of tragedy. In addition, the appendices provide further suggestions of biblical texts for addressing various subjects as well as guidance for conducting funerals.
Bryan Chapell is the bestselling author of numerous books on Christian ministry and life. Christ-Centered Preaching and Christ-Centered Worship are standard seminary texts; Holiness by Grace, Each for the Other, and Praying Backwards have helped thousands find greater joy and fulfillment in the grace of Christ. Bryan has been a pastor and is President Emeritus at Covenant Seminary. He and his wife, Kathy, have four children.
The categories covered include sermons for various tragedies, the loss of a child, funerals with especially difficult causes or circumstances, and sermons that deal with suicide. This collection even includes a sermon preached at a funeral for a celebrity certainly a unique resource, if not, invaluable if the situation were to arise.
Not only is this collection a profitable resource for pastors, but the theology and help provided in these sermons certainly may provide comfort and clarity for those who face the difficult situations that are covered. Each chapter begins with an introduction of the sermon including the situation for which the sermon was originally preached, the concerns covered in the sermon, the approach taken in the sermon, followed by a transcript of the actual sermon. These sermons are well crafted, thoroughly biblical and surprisingly readable.
Thanks to Bryan Chapell for another highly useful preaching tool for pastors and laymen alike. Todd Burgett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
