Abstract:

"Award-winning author Sidney Greidanus here presents an essential guide to preaching Christ from the Old Testament. Arguing for the need both to preach Christ in every sermon and to preach regularly from the Old Testament, Greidanus develops a christocentric method that will help preachers do both simultaneously. This volume combines contemporary hermeneutical principles with numerous practical suggestions, for effective biblical preaching, making it a fundamental text for seminary students and established preachers."--Jacket
