Tell us a little about yourself. Benjamin H. Walton (D.Min., Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) is president of PreachingWorks, an organization dedicated to helping pastors maximize their preaching potential. A respected homiletician and former pastor, Ben has taught or lectured at several colleges and seminaries. His work centers on the fusion of biblical interpretation and communication for the purpose of excellent preaching.
What was your motivation behind this project? Preachers desire to preach both accurately and powerfully, but a need existed for a user-friendly book that helped them do that from OT Narratives.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Many things. How to faithfully interpret and apply OT narratives; an understanding of the four pillars of excellent sermons, and how to deliver them from OT narratives; how to develop concrete applications; what the Bible teaches about "preaching Christ," and how that affects the sermon; deeper faith; a more appreciative congregation.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I was blessed by the pastors who tested and provided feedback on the book as it developed. Their feedback inspired me daily to convey the book's concepts in a practical, user-friendly manner.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My influences begin with Jesus Christ. It is he who saved me, and he who called me to proclaim his Word. My wife and three boys--Sara, Colin, Lucas, and Landon--provide the love and emotional support so helpful for a writing project such as this. Professionally, I am indebted most to two of the finest teachers of preaching in the U.S. today: Donald Sunukjian and Jeffery Arthurs of Talbot School of Theology and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, respectively. Naturally, there are many others, who are either mentioned in the Preface or cited in the book. Twenty-one scholars and pastors wrote endorsements for the book, and though I don't know most of them personally, I only sent the manuscript to those who God has used to influence me.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I wrote the book for you, to serve you and those you minister to. It was written with pastors in mind, and has many transferable concepts that can enhance the ministry effectiveness of even volunteer ministry leaders and the spiritual life of any Christian.
