Preaching Christ from the Old Testament: A Contemporary Hermeneutical Method

$23.95

Description

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.

Preaching Christ from the Old Testament is a must for pastors interested in preaching the Old Testament. Greidanus begins by explaining the necessity of preaching Christ from the Old Testament, and then gives a thorough history of this type of preaching. But the greatest value of this book will be found in the last half as Greideanus explains how this is done. He takes the reader step by step through the process necessary to preach the Old Testament as God’s redemptive history, and not a series of morality plays. Experienced pastors will find this book helpful and may transform their Old Testament preaching to the powerful preaching of Jesus Christ.
