Publisher's Description

When you left seminary or took up your present pastorate you were going to set the church aflame with your sound Biblical exposition, your sweeping theological insights and your homiletical eloquence. To do so you have to preach like Paul - or Peter - or Stephen!

Roger Wagner sets out to give you the insights you need to preach like those closest to Jesus. He first looks at the characteristics of New Testament preaching and then looks in more detail at 10 sermons preached in Acts by Peter (3), Paul (6) and Stephen. An appendix deals with how to preach to the modern, pluralist, materialist, pagan society we live in. Dissatisfied with your sermons? You too can preach like an Apostle!

From the introduction by Roger Wagner:

"As a Bible believing minister you are already accustomed to using the scriptures for the content of your messages. Now I am calling you to examine the way the sermons in Acts can also give you insights into how to shape the form of your messages, and let the apostolic preachers become your examples of how to deliver sermons that will be powerful and effective."

Author Bio

Roger Wagner is Pastor of Bayview Orthodox Presbyterian Church, Chula Vista California. He has been there for over 20 years.

Editorial Reviews

"Preachers dissatisfied with archaic, ingrown traditionalism on the one hand and with relativistic contextualization on the other will find in Tongues Aflame a biblical alternative that is faithful to Scripture, personally challenging, and stimulating in its passionate confidence that preaching as Peter, Stephen, and Paul did will advance Christ's reign of grace in the 21st century, as it did in the first."
