The gospels hold the key to why pastors get up every Sunday to preach. They are the "good news"--the pinnacle--of the Christian faith. But in order to preach from them with truth, clarity, and confidence, you'll need the right tools.Preaching the Four Gospels with Confidence
is a book written for pastors who love Jesus and want to preach the Gospel well. With a compelling voice, Steven D. Mathewson offers sound scriptural advice, provides bibliographic tips for further study, and quotes from well-known and respected biblical scholars including:
- G.K. Beale
- Craig S. Keener
- D.A. Carson
Additionally, Mathewson will teach you how to negotiate the common challenges that arise while preaching from the gospels. Problems such as:
- How to interpret the gospels in relation to the rest of the New Testament
- How to rightly handle the Jewish and Greco-Roman context of the gospels
- How to affirm the authority of the four gospels over the "lost gospels"
This not a "how to preach" book; it is a how to preach well
handbook that you'll want to reference again and again as you prepare sermons from the gospels.
Steve Matthewson is senior pastor of the Evangelical Free Church of Libertyville, Illinois, and teaches preaching for the doctoral program at Denver Seminary, the Master of Divinity program at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and the undergraduates at Moody Bible Institute. He is author of The Art of Preaching Old Testament Narrative.
