Product Description

The last installment of Hughes Oliphant Old's multivolume history of preaching in the Christian church, this book explores the incredibly rich diversity of preaching around the world in the twentieth century. In Our Own Time Old discusses such influential preachers as Billy Graham and Martin Luther King Jr. in the United States, Anglican Archbishop Kivengere in Uganda (known as the "Billy Graham of Africa"), Oscar Romero and other dynamic Latin Americans - and many, many more.

Old's story also covers the rise of the modern megachurch, the charismatic movement, Vatican II, the vigorous house churches of China, and the vitality of preaching in Korea. Full of surprising details and inspiring stories of ministry throughout the world, Our Own Time beautifully rounds out Old's magisterial study of Christian preaching through the centuries.

Publisher's Description

This magisterial volume is the seventh and last of Hughes Oliphant Old’s history of preaching. Here Old takes up the story with the sixties and the Second Vatican Council and follows it all the way through to the house churches of China and the preaching of the Archbishop of Uganda, known as the “Billy Graham of Africa.” Along the way he looks at the engaging preaching found in Latin America, the rise of the modern megachurch, the role of Joan Alexandru’s preaching in bringing down the house of Ceausescu, and other historically significant moments in preaching. / Full of surprising details and inspiring stories of ministry, this book is a fitting work to round out Old’s monumental, comprehensive series written by a preacher for preachers on the history of preaching in the Christian church.

Endorsements

Thomas E. Breidenthal
— Bishop of Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio
“Although a written text can never capture the moving energy of a sermon as it is delivered, this collection casts Oliver O’Donovan’s consistently penetrating analysis — at once morally challenging and pastorally sensitive — into high relief. Whether he is marveling at the fall of the Berlin Wall or asking how we should seek God’s truth in the light of 9/11, exploring why marriage is honorable or urging us to invite Jesus into everything we do, O’Donovan offers us beauty and clarity of expression, apt illustrations, and careful attention to the Bible passage at hand. His zeal for the gospel and his love of Scripture shine throughout.”

Philip Ryken
— Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia
"With this expansive volume, Hughes Oliphant Old brings his massive global history of Christian preaching to an inspiring close. Our Own Time is remarkable for its geographical and theological breadth, spanning five continents and showing generous personal appreciation for an amazing range of twentieth- and twenty-first-century preachers. The great strength of Old's approach is the direct exposure he gives to the original texts of actual sermons. Anyone who loves biblical exposition will be encouraged by the vitality of contemporary homiletics and will gain an expanded understanding of the preaching of the church worldwide."

Kurt Iver Johanson
— Pleasant Grove Christian Church, Dallas
"From the first day in September 1985 when Hughes Oliphant Old picked up his pen to compose the opening lines of this series until the final day nearly twenty-five years later when the time came for him to set it down, he has presented to the church a monumental study of the history of preaching as worship. . . . Here is sound scholarship coupled with a profound pastoral sensitivity and love of preaching."

Editorial Reviews

The Ordained Servant
"A priceless gift to the church and its preachers. . . . Astonishing in its scope, mind-expanding in its perspective, and highly motivating."

Ordained Servant
"An excellent book. . . . Pastors needing an aid responding to the kind of objections to Christian belief permeating the modern-day intelligentsia would do well to turn to this resource."
