Product Description

In this book, based on his 2001 Lyman Beecher lectures at Yale Divinity School, Bartlett looks at the meaning of good news in the Gospels and in Paul's letter to the Galatians. What the good news is and how we respond to it is different in each of these writing, Bartlett argues. And while there are important continuities in the way good news is understood, by exploring the differences the preacher can better discern what strain of good news is most important for a particular congregation to hear on a particular Sunday. This book includes five simple sermons.

Publisher's Description

In this study of the Gospels and the book of Galatians, David Bartlett explores how to reconcile the biblical text's message to our contemporary context and a particular congregation's character and need. While, as he shows, important continuities exist in the way the good news is understood throughout the New Testament, precisely what it looks like and how Christians respond to it differs between Mark, Paul, John, and the rest of the writers. Consequently, he demonstrates, preachers have options as they try to discern what news a congregation needs to hear on a particular Sunday. Including sample sermons, What's Good about This News? shows how each of these biblical texts remains a redemptive word for today's people.
