A passionate Plea for Preaching
Edited by Don Kistler
The apostle Paul declared that “what we preach” was “folly” in the eyes of many in his time (1 Cor. 1:21). Such is always the world’s response to the gospel. But in our day in the twenty-first century , it seems that the method behind Paul’s message—preaching—is itself an object of ridicule, even within the evangelical church. In an age of short attention spans and entertainment “consumers,” many churches are yielding to pressure to set aside preaching in their worship services in favor of more “relevant” methodologies. In this volume, an outstanding team of pastors and scholars says to the modern church: “Turn back!”
Preaching is not just one of many acceptable methodologies that the church may employ as the cultural landscape changes. Rather, the preaching of God’s Word is the biblically mandated method by which unbelievers are to be converted and churches built up in the faith. This book reveals the biblical basis for preaching, sketches the way it ought to be practiced, and shows the many practical benefits that flow from strong pulpits. Here is encouragement for preachers and wise counsel for those who desire to sit under the ministry of the Word of God preached.
This volume contains a collection of thundering challenges to the modern day preacher to stand his ground and preach Christ and Him crucified. With a who's who of reformed preachers and theologians weighing in, this book is a provocative and challenging call for pastors to stand against the tide of relativism and self help sermons by standing firm on the power of the Gospel. This book offers preachers great focus as they seek to fulfill their calling to preach the Gospel with Power.
