Serving God's Words
Full Product Description
This stimulating and helpful volume begins with perspectives on preaching and ministry arising from the Scriptures themselves: Richard Condie on the Ten Commandments, Paul Barker on Moses, David Peterson on Acts, David Jackman on 1 Corinthians, Allan Chapple on 1 Thessalonians, and William Taylor on 1 Timothy.
Next are reflections on theological and devotional issues: Don Carson on devotional Bible reading, Graham Cole on ethics, Peter Jensen on judgment, and Michael Raiter on unction.
Two concluding studies look at significant examples from church history: Gerald Bray on the Anglican Homilies, and Vaughan Roberts on Charles Simeon.
Serving Gods Words was commissioned in honour of Peter Adam, whose own works Speaking Gods Words (on preaching) and Hearing Gods Words (on biblical spirituality) it seeks to complement and develop. The contributors include scholars and pastoral ministers, a combination that Peter Adam has himself so ably embodied throughout his ministry, and sought to cultivate in others.
Serving God's Words by Paul A. Barker, Richard J. Condie, Andrew S. Malone (Eds) was published by IVP in October 2011 and is our 30316th best seller. The ISBN for Serving God's Words is 9781844745470.

Serving God's WordsAlan Hill, via The Good Book Stall
This book is a festschrift that is a publication honouring a respected person and presented to them during their lifetime. The man in question is Canon Peter Adam, the Evangelical Anglican who is currently Principal of Ridley Melbourne College, Australia. The 12 chapters have been written by pastors and theologians from around the world.
This is a book for preachers. It is subtitled Windows on Preaching and Ministry for good reason. Half of the book is made up of articles discussing how to preach from various books of the Bible. The other half is more general contributions on the subject of preaching.
I particularly enjoyed the chapters on the 10 commandments, the judgement of God and Charles Simeon but there is food for thought all through the book.
The editors have done an excellent job in giving the book a cohesive feel. The articles complement each other even though written by different people. Those who love God’s word and love preaching from God’s word will enjoy reading this.
