Give Them Christ

Full Product Description

Much preaching today begins with the hearer's "felt needs" and then moves to how Christianity can solve those problems. But this approach often results in trite Christologies that merely use Jesus as a means to an end or a vehicle for self-improvement. While preachers might not dispense with Christ altogether, other things subtly take center stage and become more important than Christ himself.

Pastoral theologian Stephen Seamands issues a stirring call to rediscover the centrality of Christ in preaching. Deftly blending doctrine and praxis, he revitalizes preaching by focusing on five key dimensions of Jesus' work: his incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension and return. Seamands highlights how preaching Christ crucified and risen speaks profoundly to the deepest dimensions of human existence. Addressing both the "what" and the "so what," this exposition helps church leaders declare afresh that Christ alone is supremely sufficient for Christian faith and practice.

Pastors and preachers will find here significant resources for their churches' worship, life together and mission in the world. Become captivated once again by the glory of Christ, and find yourself compelled to proclaim his work anew.

Give Them Christ by Stephen Seamands was published by IVP (USA) in May 2012. The ISBN for Give Them Christ is 9780830834679.

"Preaching is Christology in thoughtful, contextually connected and passionate speech. Stephen Seamands knows this. The gospel has no other content than Jesus Christ, and that means his incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension and return. In Give Them Christ Seamands artfully presents us with the sifted wisdom of his gleanings from exegesis, theology, hymnody, poetry, biography and even cultural analysis. This book on what to preach--and not on how to preach--has the order right, for form follows content. Clearly written, with never a point without illustration, this is a book that will gladden the preacher for the work of warming the hearts, stirring the imaginations and renewing the minds of the people with the gospel of Jesus Christ."
