Out of a sinful and secular world, the Lord called Abraham to live a life of faith. This entailed Abraham to leave everything he knew and travel to a land he had never seen. Abraham boldly began his life of faith, yet he still had moments of hesitation and delay throughout his life. It wasn't until Abraham yielded himself fully to the will of God in his life of faith that he received the son of prophecy, Isaac, and safely brought him through the long journey to the Promise Land. Although Abraham is considered the hero of faith, he is in no way without his flaws. In fact, we can learn as much from his flaws as from his virtues. In studying Abraham's life, we'll notice his struggle to trust God, especially when times get tough. Every true believer faces conflicts and trials that test our ability to trust God; therefore, Abraham's life gives us much to glean from concerning the Christian pilgrimage.

Preaching has fallen on hard times with many questioning its relevance and even its validity as a New Testament practice. This symposium of specially commissioned essays draws together an international team of thirteen scholars and pastors to address the importance of textual preaching in the history and life of the early church, the historic church, and the contemporary church. Contributions include essays on Old Testament preaching, preaching in Hebrews, gender-sensitive preaching, preaching in the theology of Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and in Eastern Orthodoxy. It also includes essays on a range of homiletical challenges that textual preaching raises for the contemporary preacher, including genre, preaching without notes, inhabiting the text, and preaching without platitudes. A final reflection by Dave Hansen on the state of textual preaching rounds out the collection. The preaching of the gospel stands at the heart of Christian praxis. These essays make a vital contribution to the recovery of the importance of preaching, focused on the text of Scripture. Written with an eye to the pastor and practitioner as well as those in the pews and in the classroom, this is a book that should appeal to a wide range of readers.
