Quick Overview:

This user-friendly practical textbook helps preachers and homiletics students develop and deliver biblically based expository sermons relevant for the twenty-first century.
 
People in churches today are hungry for a word from God. Preachers need to prepare and deliver sound biblical sermons that connect with their audience in a meaningful way. Whether you are a student new to preaching or a veteran looking to brush up your preaching skills, here is a valuable resource. Good preaching begins with good exegesis. Preaching God’s Word walks you through the steps of the “Interpretive Journey” from the biblical text to contemporary application: • Grasp the text in “Their Town” (what it meant to the original audience). • Measure the width of the river that separates the biblical context from today. • Cross the “Principalizing Bridge” by identifying the timeless theological principles. • Grasp the text in “Our Town.” While the science of solid biblical interpretation is essential to effective preaching, it must be married to the art of contemporary communication in order to bring the message home. Preaching God’s Word also shows you how to understand your audience, develop powerful applications, use illustrations well, and deliver the sermon effectively. The concluding chapters discuss the unique preaching challenges presented by the various biblical genres, providing interpretive keys, things to avoid, and numerous examples. “Carter, Duvall, and Hays have given us a basic and worthy manual of how-to’s for preaching. Now since Haddon Robinson’s classic text has a book taken such a practical and understandable, step-by-step approach to the sermon.” -Calvin Miller, Professor of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School “In a day when the church-world is lulled into complacency by sermons that are little more than entertaining homilies on good values and fix-it paradigms, here is a guide to proclamation the way it was meant to be…biblical, understandable, and transforming.” -Joseph M. Stowell, Teaching Pastor, Harvest Bible Church; Former President, Moody Bible Institute.
