About "Excellent Preaching: Proclaiming the Gospel in Its Context and Ours"
The Bible is far more exciting and relevant to modern life than most realize. In Excellent Preaching, Craig Bartholomew explains how to preach so that the powerful message of the Bible penetrates our daily lives. While we need to be intimately acquainted with Scripture, we also need to understand the context in which we preach. But good contextualization is hard work.
Some preach sermons firmly grounded in Scripture, but the message will fall flat if it is not contextually applied. Others excel at contextualization, but the relevance of their message will do no good if it is not consistently biblical. Bartholomew seeks to avoid either pitfall, bridging the gap between a biblical foundation and relevant application.
Grounded in rigorous scholarship and rooted in years of preaching experience, this short, accessible, and practical book helps preachers connect the message of the text to the lives of the congregation.
