Evangelistic, Edificatory Redemptive-Historical Preaching (wheh!)

July 2, 2007

Josh Otte has an outstanding post on the challenges and promises of preaching “Evangelistic, Edificatory Redemptive-Historically,” drawing rich insights from Johnson’s new book on preaching We Proclaim Him. Here is an excerpt from the post.

Preaching must be Christ-centered, must interpret biblical texts in their redemptive-historical contexts, must aim for change, must proclaim the doctrinal center of the Reformation (grace alone, faith alone, Christ alone, God’s glory alone) with passion and personal application, and must speak in a language that connects with the unchurched in our culture, shattering their stereotypes of Christianity and bringing them face to face with Christ, who meets sinner’s real needs—felt and unfelt. (p. 54)
