Book Information

This primer on the ministry of preaching connects reading the Bible theologically with preparing and preaching sermons. Leading theologian Hans Boersma explains that exegesis involves looking beyond the historical and literal meaning of the text to the hidden sacramental reality of Christ himself, which enables us to reach the deepest meaning of the Scriptures. He provides models for theological sermons along with commentary on exegetical and homiletical method and offers guidance in placing the focus on Christ in all our reading of the Scriptures. Boersma also shows how patristic exegesis is relevant for reading the Bible today.

Sacramental Preaching will be of use to professors and students in homiletics and hermeneutics courses as well as pastors and seminarians. Readers interested in theology and theological interpretation will also appreciate this work.
