Product Description

Christ was not a boring preacher! 'How wonderful is would be,' says Stuart Olyott in the introduction to this book, 'if Christian preachers throughout the world were ministering like their Master!' Drawing on examples of Christ's preaching from the Gospels, Olyott challenges preachers today with three features of their Master's ministry. Christ's style and method were not boring, but gripping. Christ's preaching was evangelistic. Christ's ministry was more than just preaching: his whole life was ministry. In a fresh, compelling and practical way. Olyott guides preachers away from some of the perils and pitfalls that could hinder their success. In so doing, he shows us just how essential Christ's example is to those who seek to minister in his name today.

    Mr. Andrew Young
    This book contains three chapters on the subject of preaching. The chapters are very clear, with helpful practical advice.Olyott begins by showing that Christ was not a boring preacher. He shows this by looking at Christ's sermon on the mount from Matthew chapters 5-7. From this passage of the Bible, he brings out three key principles that preachers should take note of:1. State - the use ordinary words in an interesting way, including the use of repetition and rhetorical questions;2. Illustrate - the use of everyday objects in the home, in the church, and in everyday life, in order to make a point clearer;3. Apply - the application of the Word to hearers in a relevant and appropriate way.The second chapter shows us that Christ was an evangelistic preacher. This is shown by a study of matthew 11:20-30. The lessons here are that preachers should:1. Point the finger - at different groups of people, at sin, and towards the judgement;2. Bend the knee - seek God as you minister and submit to Him;3. Open your arms - remember that explaining the facts of the gospel is not enough. Christ gives a welcoming, loving gospel invitation (Matthew 11:28-30). So should we!Finally, from Mark 1, Olyott shows that Christ was more than just a preacher. As he goes through the chapter, he points out that Christ was not cut off from the real world. Christ identifies with sinners, experiences temptation, engages in personal conversation, confronts evil, cares for the sick, maintains a life of prayer, and touches the untouchable.The book is aimed at preachers. No matter how long someone has been preaching, they ought to find many helpful lessons in this book, in order to enhance their ministry. It is hoped that in reading this, many might be encouraged to minister like their master!
