One of the major problems for any preacher or teacher is how we apply the Bible today. In this book, which were originally lectures at Moore Theological College in Sydney, I take you through the basic theology and skills you need to have in your toolkit.
I wrote it because in all the shelves of books on preaching, there are a bare handful on application, and yet this is a good half of our preparation, and a good slice of our message.
There are reproducible diagrams, worked examples, and relevant passages, together with engagement with the contemporary issues.
Peter Lewis, says: I have read, over the years, a number of books on preaching which I have particularly valued. They included books by Martyn Lloyd Jones (classic); John Stott (comprehensive); Haddon Robinson (perceptive and practical); and Bryan Chapell (comprehensive and superb – the best buy I know). Beside these I found hugely helpful (and endlessly quotable in sermons!) Preaching to a Post-modern World: a Guide to ReachingTwenty-first Century Listeners by Graham Johnston (Baker 2001) and, very salutary, Preaching that Speaks to Womenby Alice P. Matthews (Baker 2003). Both of these have a foreword by Haddon Robinson and both I would make compulsory reading in any course on preaching.
Now I have another which I would put on a par with all these for excellence. It is Chris Green’s book Cutting to the Heart: Applying the Bible in Teaching and Preaching.”
