Do you know what makes for good preaching?

The pastor opens with a funny joke, strings together a series of disconnected Bible verses and clever anecdotes, and then closes with an inspirational quote. But is this the kind of preaching that most glorifies God, honors his Word, and edifies his people?

In Preaching: A Biblical Theology, pastor Jason Meyer examines the biblical

The mantle of leadership has been passed from the steady hands of John Piper to the young preacher/scholar in Jason C. Meyer at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This new book, Preaching: A Biblical Theology by Jason is a winsome book devoted to the awesome task of preaching God’s word to His people. Rather than a prescript-filled resource, Jason’s main concern is to “steward and herald God’s word in such a way that people encounter God through his word” (21). The stewarding ...more

When I saw this book it was my first option. I’ve been a youth pastor for 3 years and this book seemed to be a good resource about preaching. I’ve been taught about preaching in the past but honestly, never studied the topic for myself.

First I gotta say the length of the book took me by surprise. Meyer takes the time to prove and explain each point he has. Now, this is not a hipster book of how to make your preaching more interesting using jokes, movie example

Jason Meyer keeps his promise. He sets out to place the concept of Preaching within the larger context of a "ministry of the word." He does that well. Meyer makes a number of interesting connections using a common rubric for evaluating stories. His connections are worthy of further investigation and thought.

The book doesn't claim to be a text on homiletics nor a how-to book for writing sermons. It sets out to be a Theology of Word that gives the contemporary preacher a foundation on which to bui

Great book on the essential and only proper form of preaching... Expository.
Not just his opinion, but a well researched methodology of the why and how of heralding God's love letter written to humanity.

The second section, on stewarding the word in each sort of literature in the Bible, becomes a little repetitive, but it's necessary for the fullness of Meyer's work. Overall, he makes a strong theological case with immediate practical applications.

Provides a clear and comprehensive theology of preaching and argues effectively for expository preaching being the best way to proclaim God's Word faithfully and consistently.

This book is great. The read will be better if you take the author's advice and skip Part 3 of the book.

There is been many books on biblical theology but not on preaching. This is a must read for anyone who wants to look at preaching throughout the whole Bible.
