The gospels hold the key to why pastors get up every Sunday to preach. They are the 'good news'--the pinnacle--of the Christian faith. But in order to preach from them with truth, clarity, and confidence, you'll need the right tools.
Preaching the Four Gospels with Confidence is a book written for pastors who love Jesus and want to preach the Gospel well. With a compelling voice, Steven D. Mathewson offers sound scriptural advice, provides bibliographic tips for further study, and quotes from well-known and respected biblical scholars including:
Craig S. Keener
Additionally, Mathewson will teach you how to negotiate the common challenges that arise while preaching from the gospels. Problems such as:
How to interpret the gospels in relation to the rest of the New Testament
How to rightly handle the Jewish and Greco-Roman context of the gospels
How to affirm the authority of the four gospels over the 'lost gospels'
This not a 'how to preach' book; it is a how to preach well handbook that you'll want to reference again and again as you prepare sermons from the gospels.
