Preaching the New Testament
Paul, Ian; Wenham, David
"This is a first-rate set of essays from an international slate of contributors—scholars and students of the New Testament who are also preachers themselves. In conversation with the best of evangelical scholarship, they boldly address the challenges facing proclamation of the New Testament in a postmodern context. At once intellectually profound and immediately practical, these studies offer a masterful combination of careful exegesis, incisive theological reflection and balanced homiletical application for the life of the church today."See All

"Every Christian preacher must preach from the New Testament. The New Testament is made up of different genres of literature, and each section has its own power and problems. Here are the musings of nineteen different scholars who present the challenges and the benefits of these up-to-date ancient writings that should persuade a pastor to study the New Testament again for the first time."See All

The New Testament writers proclaimed their message passionately and persuasively. This volume explores how we can preach faithfully from those texts. The chapters cover the main texts and genres of the New Testament, and offer particular insights into the infancy narratives, parables, miracles, the Sermon on the Mount, ethics, future hope and judgment, archaeology and history, hermeneutics and the "New Homiletic."
Building on sound principles of interpretation, communication and application, this book supports the efforts of preachers and Bible teachers to proclaim the good news to listeners today.
