Biographical Information

The late Edmund Clowney is renowned throughout the Presbyterian world for his teaching and church leadership. Serving at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, PA for several decades, he has written largely on preaching and ecclesiology.

In a lot of ways, I'm am already a curmudgeon. I dislike most new things. I immediately value a lot of old traditions and ideas. I am horrendously nostalgic.

In this series of lectures (first given in 1956), Clowney discusses the nature of preaching and the place that biblical theology has in it.

Although firmly sound, Clowney’s work here is unfortunately dry, bordering on tedious at times. It’s worth reading, but knowledge derived will not come easily.

So much respect for Leon Morris. His books and commentaries are a generous gift to us. That being said I think one can be better helped by some of his other works such as "The Atonement", and his excellent commentary on John in the NICNT series. As far as this particular topic, Preaching and Biblical Theology, I would recommend Graeme Goldsworthy!
