Proclaiming the Gospel in Its Context and Ours
Craig G. Bartholomew
OverviewThe goal of preaching is to let the powerful message of the Bible penetrate the lives of your congregation. A well-crafted sermon can help to bridge the gap between biblical context and contemporary application.
In Excellent Preaching, Craig Bartholomew explains why we need to be acquainted with both the context of Scripture and the context in which we preach. Good contextualization is hard work, but Bartholomew shows that it can be done.
Practical, accessible, and rooted in years of preaching experience, this short book helps preachers connect the message of the text to everyday life.
