Arguing for the need both to preach Christ in every sermon and to preach regularly from the Old Testament, Sidney Greidanus develops a christocentric method that will help preachers do both simultaneously.

Greidanus challenges Old Testament scholars to broaden their focus and to understand the Old Testament not only in its own historical context but also in the context of the New Testament. Suggesting specific steps and providing concrete examples, this volume provides a practical guide for preaching Christ from the Old Testament.

Review: Preaching Christ from the Old Testament: A Contemporary Hermeneutical Method

User Review  - Adam - Goodreads

I loved this book. It is thick and scholarly, but not beyond the average reader. Many Christians are modern day Marcionites in their refusal to learn from the OT. Pastors are complicit by either not preaching from the OT or only preaching moralistic/"be like" sermons. Read full review
