Here's help for pastors, teachers, students, or anybody who struggles to preach meaningfully from the Old Testament. Goldsworthy's practical handbook draws out Christ-centered themes from various types of biblical literature; highlights their individual strengths for expository preaching; and demonstrates how to apply them effectively in sermons that focus on the person and work of Jesus. 288 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.
While strong, gospel-centered preaching abounds, many Christian pastors and lay preachers find it difficult to preach meaningfully from the Old Testament. This practical handbook offers help. Graeme Goldsworthy teaches the basics of preaching the whole Bible in a consistently Christ-centered way.
Goldsworthy first examines the Bible, biblical theology, and preaching and shows how they relate in the preparation of Christ-centered sermons. He then applies the biblical-theological method to the various types of literature found in the Bible, drawing out their contributions to expository preaching focused on the person and work of Christ.
Clear, complete, and immediately applicable, this volume will become a fundamental text for teachers, pastors, and students preparing for ministry.
