Theology Is for Preaching
Out of stock
Why do we preach and do theology? How do we relate them? And how do they relate to God’s word?
Theology Is for Preaching helps preachers with theology and theologians with preaching. Though diverse in contexts and disciplines, the contributors share a commitment to equipping the saints to “rightly handle the word of truth.” Through essays on foundations, methods, employing theology for preaching, and preaching for theology, this volume will equip preachers and theologians to engage deeply with the text of the Bible and communicate its meaning with clarity.
For thoughtful preachers, reading Theology Is for Preaching is like donning a warm sweater on a cold evening. ... Devotion to Scripture, sound thought, and pastoral discernment characterize the book and will provide the like-minded with heart-warming assurance of the Lord’s blessing upon, and provision for, the pastoral calling in a secularizing world. –Bryan Chapell, Pastor Emeritus, Grace Presbyterian Church, author of Christ-Centered Preaching
This book is a treasure trove of sound instruction from wise mentors for anyone who dares to open up the Bible in front of others seeking to teach it faithfully and effectively. –Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher and author, host of the Help Me Teach the Bible podcast
This is an irenic, practical and at times doxological book that will help readers come to a clearer understanding of the preached word and the God who speaks through it. Highly recommended. –Carl R Trueman, Grove City College
