Preaching Christ from the Old Testament: Foundations for Expository Sermons
Title: Preaching Christ from the Old Testament: Foundations for Expository Sermons
Publisher: Eerdmans Publishing Company
Available in 6 Volume Set
Arguing for the need both to preach Christ in every sermon and to preach regularly from the Old Testament, Sidney Greidanus develops a christocentric method that will help preachers do both simultaneously.
Greidanus challenges Old Testament scholars to broaden their focus and to understand the Old Testament not only in its own historical context but also in the context of the New Testament. Suggesting specific steps and providing concrete examples, this volume provides a practical guide for preaching Christ from the Old Testament.
"This is a careful, clear, helpful volume, which can be useful to any preacher who wishes to preach 'the whole counsel of God,' joining Old and New Testaments. . . A good book." — Elizabeth Achtemeier in Interpretation
"Sidney Greidanus makes a major contribution to modern preaching with this work. . . . A great resource tool for sermon preparation. . . . Greidanus achieves a scholarly work, but one that is filled with great insight and integrity." — Ministries Today
"This is a long, complicated, but thorough book. It has wonderful insights and is written in a splendid way. This would be the kind of book most pastors ought to read. It gives a clear theological outline of a problem that plagues the modern church — failure to give credence to the Scripture from which Jesus himself preached." — Clergy Journal
Sidney Greidanus is professor emeritus of preaching at Calvin Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
