Product Description

Though misinterpreting God's Word is not restricted to one race or culture, author Aaron Lavender identifies three factors that have precipitated the decline of black preaching specifically: racial segregation, black liberation theology, and prosperity theology. In Enduring Truth, Lavender argues that faithfulness to Scripture is the solution to a crisis within African American preaching.

Covering the history of the current crisis, the role of biblical exegesis in preaching, a theology of preaching, and preaching methods for the postmodern world, Lavender forwards a candid, succinct, and much needed treatise on faithfully determining and communicating the meaning of God's Word.

While focused on the African American context, this volume addresses topics relevant to all preachers. Enduring Truth is suited both for ministry practitioners and preaching courses. It will help readers elevate the Word of God over the worldly allures of any ministry setting.

Editorial Reviews

"Dr. Lavender is a pastor committed to expository preaching. The information on the history of preaching and its failure to maintain the historic fundamentals is helpful and up to date, and the helpful solutions to the problems caused by poor preparation and training prove to be very valuable. The thought-provoking questions asked in the book will need an answer, and I believe that Dr. Lavender’s comments will benefit any preacher. I am happy to recommend this book to anyone interested in the faithful communication of God’s Word."

—Daniel J. Griffin Sr., international pastor and director of international training, Sanctuary Outpost

"Enduring Truth is a powerful and passionate call for African Americans to re-institute sound theological preaching to the pulpit. Christ is exalted at the turn of every page and Lavender's steadfastness to the Bible's authority will keep the reader grounded in the truth and thesis of the work. The discussion questions are good for personal reflection and small group discussions. I would recommend Enduring Truth for any pastor seeking personal growth or a resource for pastoral training programs. In addition, it's a great book for faculty teaching a preaching course." 
 
—Kevin Jones, assistant professor of teacher education, Boyce College
 
"Dr. Aaron Lavender addresses the textual accuracy and the relevance of biblical preaching. He expounds on elements of racial segregation: historical, social, educational, and religious. Dr. Lavender explains the awareness of discrimination and the struggle with African Americans having a distorted view of God’s Word and answers the age-old question, ’What is truth?’ Every serious student of the Word would benefit from reading this book."

—Allen R. McFarland, senior pastor, Calvary Evangelical Baptist Church
 
"This book is a candid, succinct, and needed treatise on why so many African-American pulpits are under-serving their congregants. As a teacher of church history, I heartily endorse this book. The author fearlessly names people and ministries that have contributed to the abuse and misapplication of God’s Word, even today. And while the emphasis is on African-American pulpits, the need to restore sound theology is universal. It is a must read!"
 
—LeRoy Randolph Jr., president emeritus and director of institutional advancement, Carver Baptist Bible College, Institute, & Theological Seminary
