From the Study to the Pulpit
An 8-Step Method for Preaching and Teaching the Old Testament
Many pastors struggle with preaching the Old Testament. As a professor and pastor, Allan Moseley's vast experience and knowledge go a long way in helping expositors enrich their pulpit ministry.
The purpose of his book is to offer both exegetical and preaching help by means of a workable 8-step method. The author's preaching model starts with the initial step of determining the genre and meaning of the text to doing word studies and discovering the main ideas of the text to applying the sermon in a life-changing and Christ-honoring manner.
Some books on preaching from the Old Testament are written by authors who do not actually preach, or preach only occasionally. Pastors and budding preachers need a book written by someone who has knows what it is like to be a pastor and has prepared sermons every week for years. His book reflects his classroom teaching on the subjects of exposition and hermeneutics, and it provides helpful illustrations of expositional principles that rise from his own preaching ministry.
Allan Moseley (Th.D., New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary) is Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has also served as a pastor before and during his teaching career, most recently for ten years at Christ Baptist Church in Raleigh, NC. Moseley has written four books: What's Life All About? Foundations for a Biblical Worldview from Genesis 1-12; Thinking against the Grain: Developing a Biblical Worldview in a Culture of Myths; Living Well: God's Wisdom from the Book of Proverbs; and a commentary on Leviticus in the Christ-Centered Exposition commentary series.
