The Archer and the Arrow
Full Product Description
'My aim is to preach the gospel by prayerfully expounding the Bible to the people God has given me to love.'
Join Phillip Jensen and Paul Grimmond as they explore each phrase in this carefully wrought statement, and show not only why faithful, powerful, biblical preaching is so important, but how to go about it.
Phillip Jensen has been preaching God's word for almost four decades. The purpose of this book is to pass on some of the wisdom that he has gained during that time - not so that preachers can become like him, but so that they may be encouraged and inspired to love Jesus and to preach his words to a world that so desperately needs them.
Colin Marshall, author of the best-selling The Trellis and the Vine says, "The disciple-making vision of The Trellis and the Vine will only be realised through the kind of fearless, Bible-driven proclamation of the gospel that has been the hallmark of Phillip Jensen's ministry. For over 20 years I watched him train a generation of young preachers during their ministry apprenticeship. This brilliant book now distils this wisdom for every preacher and would-be preacher."

The Archer and the ArrowSteve Langford, via The Good Book Stall
In The Archer and the Arrow Phillip D. Jensen and Paul Grimmond provide a solid introduction to the art of preaching. Beginning with a clear description of Gospel preaching, Jensen and Grimmond take the reader from reading a Bible passage to producing a sermon that is both evangelical in nature and true to the message at the heart of the Biblical text. Using the illustration of the arrow as a method of carrying the Gospel message from preacher to listener works well as it provides a number of hooks upon which Jensen and Grimmond are able to hang their thoughts. For example, the description of the arrow being made up of a head, shaft and feathers provides the authors with the opportunity to speak of three stages to the producing a sermon: The Gospel message, the exegetical process and the underlying theology of the preacher. As an experienced preacher I appreciated The Archer and the Arrow as a useful introduction to preaching and would happily recommend it to someone starting out on their preaching ministry.
