Publisher's Description

The Modern Preacher and the Ancient Text provides a holistic approach to the interpretation and preaching of biblical texts. After discussing the form of biblical preaching and examining various historical methodologies for understanding the biblical text, Sidney Greidanus applies general hermeneutical and homiletical principles to four specific scriptural genres: Hebrew narratives, prophetic literature, gospel, and epistle. Thorough and well researched, this volume is a valuable resource both for pastors seeking guidelines for responsible expository preaching and for students wanting to bridge the gap between biblical studies and homiletics.
