'We Proclaim the Word of Life'

Full Product Description

Whatever we know about the New Testament, and however much we have studied it, it only has real value as its truths are proclaimed so that our lives are transformed, as God himself speaks and acts.

The New Testament writers were very interested in conveying their message persuasively, and this volume addresses the question of how we should preach from the New Testament in a way that is faithful to the text. The chapters cover the main texts and genres, along with the infancy narratives, parables, miracles, the Sermon on the Mount, ethics, future hope and judgment, archaeology and history, hermeneutics, and the 'New Homiletic'.

The aim is to offer insights into how to interpret, communicate and apply the New Testament, for today's preachers and Bible teachers who seek to 'proclaim the Word of life' (1 John 1:1).

The contributors are respected scholars who are also active in preaching: Charles Anderson, D. A. Carson, the late R. T. France, Justin Hardin, Mariam Kamell, I. Howard Marshall, Jason Maston, John Nolland, Peter Oakes, William Olhausen, Klyne Snodgrass, Helge Stadelmann, Christoph Stenschke, Stephen Travis, David Wenham, Paul Weston and Stephen Wright.

‘Every Christian preacher must preach from the New Testament. It is made up of different genres of literature, and each section has its own power and problems. Here are the reflections of nineteen different scholars who present the challenges and the benefits of these up-to-date ancient writings that should persuade a pastor to study the New Testament with fresh insight.’- Haddon Robinson, Harold John Ockenga Professor of Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

'This is a first-rate set of essays from an international slate of contributors -- scholars and students of the New Testament who are also preachers themselves. In conversation with the best of evangelical scholarship, they boldly address the challenges facing proclamation of the New Testament in a postmodern context. At once intellectually profound and immediately practical, these studies offer a masterful combination of careful exegesis, incisive theological reflection and balanced homiletical application for the life of the church today.’- Michael P. Knowles, George Franklin Hurlburt Professor of Preaching, McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario

‘You will find in this collection of essays a treasure trove of convictions and insights about preaching the New Testament that can nourish, challenge and enrich any pastor's sermons. I read it eagerly and thankfully, in agreement and disagreement, but with gratitude throughout.’- Mark Labberton, Ogilvie Associate Professor of Preaching and director, Ogilvie Institute of Preaching, Fuller Theological Seminary
