Overview

"Steve Mathewson has a passion for the Old Testament, a passion for the craft of preaching, and a passion for the art of story. This volume doesn't just call the preacher to greater effectiveness, it helps her or him achieve it."
-John Ortberg, pastor, Willow Creek Community Church

"The Old Testament houses a wealth of powerful preaching material for those who know how to mine its depths and communicate its truth in an effective, relevant way. Steve Mathewson has provided the serious preacher and teacher of Old Testament narrative literature with an awesome guide on how to communicate the truths from the Old Testament to our contemporary generation."
-Tony Evans, president, The Urban Alternative

"This is a great book for preachers who want to take seriously our obligation to preach 'the whole counsel of God,' including the wisdom of the Old Testament. . . . [This] book is a great resource for biblical preaching from some of the most challenging and revealing parts of Scripture."
-William H. Willimon, Duke Divinity School

"Too often our narrative sermons consist of 'telling the story' and then offering 'some practical applications' at the end. . . . Steve Mathewson shows how to discern the specific theological truth of a biblical story and then how to apply it to contemporary life in a penetrating way."
-Donald R. Sunukjian, Talbot School of Theology

"Blessed is the congregation whose pastor can preach Old Testament narrative without allegorizing or moralizing! If you want to mine the riches of the Old Testament and share that treasure with your people, this book will show you how."
-Warren W. Wiersbe, author, The Dynamics of Preaching

"Steve Mathewson knows why we don't preach Old Testament narratives; he tells us why we should; and he describes how we can. His method is clear and inviting. He displays the highest standards of biblical scholarship without a hint of smugness."
-David Hansen, author, The Art of Pastoring

    Disaster!

    I bought this book as a NOOK book. After I began reading it on my MAC laptop, I was informed that my time had run out and I could no longer access the book. As a result, I felt that I had been robbed of $15 by Barnes and Noble.
