Preaching Christ from Ecclesiastes: Foundations for Expository Sermons
As Sidney Greidanus points out, Ecclesiastes is especially relevant for our culture: the Teacher confronts such enticements as materialism, secularism, hedonism, human autonomy, and self-sufficiency. But how can preachers best convey these important teachings to their congregations?
A respected expert in both hermeneutics and homiletics, Greidanus here does preachers a great service by providing the foundations for one or more series of expository sermons on Ecclesiastes. He offers many suggestions for preaching this book, including the boundaries of each preaching text, the text's theme and goal, various ways to move to Christ in the New Testament, detailed exposition of the fifteen literary units, and application for today.
