Preaching and Biblical Theology
Clowney, Edmund P.
“[A] fine book.... the [author's] style ... is always forceful and expressive.... this volume should receive wide circulation and close attention by anyone who seeks to preach God's Word to our generation within the context of modern thought. Our preaching will be the richer for it.”See All

Some think of biblical theology as an academic discipline. To author Edmund P. Clowney it is "a labor of worship." He writes, "A decade in the pastorate brought on me a dawning conviction that the biblical-theological approach of the seminary classroom was excitingly rich for the pulpit ministry."
In this classic volume Clowney explains biblical theology and relates it to the following:
- The authority of preaching
- The perspective and character of preaching
- The content of preaching
"Our proclamation is at the end of the age and to the ends of the world," writes Clowney. "It requires joyful boldness as well as desperate urgency. The richness of the message is its focus on Jesus Christ. Biblical theology presents the Christ of the Scriptures, and the depth of religious experience which responds in faith to him."
