If you agree with Kaiser that preaching from the Old Testament is an oft-neglected and mishandled discipline these days, you'll welcome this practical, accessible resource. He exposits 10 great passages that are rife with evidence of God's majesty; and demonstrates how word studies and historical/archaeological exploration can make the Old Testament relevant to your congregation. 176 pages, softcover from Baker.
This new book by a trusted Old Testament scholar directs the student and pastor to an aspect of biblical truth often lacking in contemporary preaching and teaching: God's unsurpassed majesty and greatness. Kaiser suggests that a key way to recapture this important doctrine in the pulpit is through the preaching of the Old Testament--itself an oft-neglected or mishandled discipline. By expositing ten great Old Testament passages that are rife with evidence of God's majesty, he shows how today's preacher might address this deficiency. He also shows how such exercises as word studies and historical/archaeological studies can be used to help pastors make the Old Testament relevant to their congregations.
Walter C. Kaiser Jr. (PhD, Brandeis University) is president emeritus and Colman Mockler Distinguished Professor of Old Testament at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He is the author of more than thirty books, including Mission in the Old Testament and Preaching and Teaching from the Old Testament.
