Product Description

The Puritans called it 'that certain unction', Martyn Lloyd-Jones caled it 'an access of power', others have called it 'the anointing'. Whether or not these terms most appropriately reflect the biblical theology of Spirit empowered preaching is not the question--they capture the essence of authentic preaching. If you desire to be used as a channel for the Spirit of God when you preach, this book is a step in the right direction. Reccomended by preachers such as Edmund Clowney and John Armstrong.

Publisher's Description

One of the great dangers that faces today's preachers is the problem of an over intellectual approach. Careful, meditative and painstaking exegesis brings a potential liability, that of losing the vitality, which must accompany exposition.

The Puritans called it 'that certain unction', Martyn Lloyd-Jones called it 'an access of power', others have called it 'the anointing'. If you desire that your preaching be lifted up to a position in which you are being used by the Spirit as a channel, then Arturo Azurdia can help you.

The insights in this book are gained from Art's careful study and practical experiences of being used by the Holy Spirit in his ministry.

He was the founding minister of Christ Community Church in Fairfield, California, where he subsequently pastored for 19 years. He is married to Lori and they have 2 children.

Editorial Reviews

The goal of the book is to present a biblical theology of Spirit empowered preaching and it succeeds very well...reminded of much, challenged, rebuked, convicted (having frequently to turn aside to prayer), humbled, encouraged, and stirred up with a renewed desire to go at it again! My heart has truly been stirred.

My heart has truly been stirred."
"He seeks a balance between the Holy Spirit and the Word. He proceeds to show the need for the unction and describes the work of the Holy Spirit in preaching, and impresses upon his readers the benefits of being Spirit-filled ministers. His main points are supported by the New Testament and by those people considered to be great evangelical preachers of the past. He shows that the empowering of the Holy Spirit is a sovereign work of God, and that the minister of the Word should be a person of constant prayer. His last chapter, "Pray me full" affirms this and is helpful to all ministers."
"When you finish reading this book not only will you have a better idea of the role of the Spirit in preaching, but you will also know better how to preach in dependence on the Holy Spirit. Everyone who is preaching, or preparing to preach, needs to read this book"
"Seldom does a book arise of which one can say, "This should be essential reading for preachers at whatever stage of their ministry!" But I can say this honestly of this book. . . It has made me wish that I could start all over again."

"Arturo Azurdia believes that much modern preaching is powerless. Sadly, he is right . . . in a searching and warm-hearted analysis he shows how the situation should and can be remedied."
"You will be delighted by this book . . . If your praying for the Spirit's power has become formal or thoughtless then this book can change both you and your ministry - by the Spirit's power."

'Art Azurdia's excellent book will convince you, if your mind and heart is open to God, to get power as well as material . . . I intend to read it again and again and widely recommend it to pastors the world over.
