Publisher's Description

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 God’s Word that will comfort and strengthen God’s 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 today’s 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, author of Christ-Centered Preaching, has compiled an incredibly valuable resource for pastors in this collection of sermons dealing with difficult subjects. Along with Bryan Chapell, other pastors contributing sermons to this collection include John Piper, Tim Keller, Michael Horton, and many others.

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
