Product Description

Many Christians share the assumption that preaching the word of God is at the heart of God's plans for the gospel in our age, that it is vital for the church's health, and that it is the central task of the pastor-teacher. Many helpful books on preaching are available. The vast majority are concerned with "how-to," but relatively few focus primarily on the character and theology of preaching according to Scripture.

Two key, interrelated questions need to be addressed. First, is there such a thing as "preaching" that is mandated in the post-apostolic context—and, if there is, how is it defined and characterized? Second, how does post-apostolic "preaching" relate to the preaching of the Old Testament prophets and of Jesus and his apostles?

In Preaching from the New Testament, a volume from the New Studies in Biblical Theology series, Jonathan Griffiths seeks answers to these questions in the New Testament. In Part One he gives an overview of the theology of the Word of God, surveys Greek terms related to preaching, and looks at teaching concerning the scope and character of other word ministries in the life of the church. In Part Two his exegetical studies concentrate on teaching that relates especially to the post-apostolic context. In Part Three he summarizes the exegetical findings, sets them within the context of biblical theology, and proposes a number of broader theological implications.

Griffiths's accessible, scholarly investigation will be of value to scholars, pastors, preachers, and Bible teachers.

Editorial Reviews

" Preaching in the New Testament presents a compelling biblical case for what preaching is and does. The book will not necessarily help readers become better preachers, but it will make them more aware as preachers—which, in the end, may make them more effective." -- Peter Krol, Bible Study Magazine, November/December 2017

"As a pastor myself, I found this book extremely encouraging, and came away not only with a clearer grasp of what God intends to accomplish through my preaching, but with a renewed goal of doing what I can to see that my preaching fulfills those divine purposes." -- Gary L. Shultz Jr., The Journal of the Evangelical Homiletics Society, March 2018

"What a great encouragement for maintaining the centrality of preaching in our worship! Tasting heaven as God speaks to us through his word; what a great thought! Preaching in the New Testament: An Exegetical and Biblical-Theological Study by Jonathan I. Griffiths is a great scholarly resource and encouragement to pastors in their regular work of exegesis and preaching ministry. Griffiths’ wok comes with the highest recommendations." -- Jacques Roets, Mid-America Journal of Theology

"Readers will find here a wealth of information and insight related to the biblical basis for preaching which should fuel a life-long commitment to handle God's truth rightly and to proclaim it to others today. For at least these important reasons, Preaching in the New Testament should be welcomed with enthusiasm as a vital resource for all those who are called to serve in the specific word ministry knwon in Scripture as 'preaching.'" -- Pete Charpentier, Midwestern Journal of Theology, Spring 2018
