Product Description

A must-read for pastors and seminarians. Advocating a holistic approach to preaching, Greidanus offers a lucid examination of historical, theological, and literary interpretative methods, and suggests ways to bridge the historical-cultural gap between the Bible and contemporary listeners. His application of hermeneutical and homiletical principles to Hebrew narratives, prophetic literature, the Gospels, and the epistles is particularly useful. 374 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

Editorial Reviews

Preaching
"Preachers seeking a solid and helpful consideration of hermeneutics in service of preaching will greet The Modern Preacher and the Ancient Text with great enthusiasm. Sidney Greidanus has produced one of those rare volumes which should be read by all preachers who take the task of interpretation and proclamation with great seriousness."

Homiletic
"For students who desire to see how their theological studies can come together at the point of preaching or for pastors who feel the need for an update on the biblical, hermeneutical, and homiletical currents of our day, this volume is enlightening and useful."
