He Is Not Silent: Preaching in a Postmodern World

Overview


"Contemporary preaching suffers from a loss of confidence in the power of the Word, from an infatuation with technology, from an embarrassment before the biblical text, from an evacuation of biblical content, from a focus on felt needs, from an absence of gospel." Preaching, the practice of publicly expositing the Bible, has fallen on hard times. How did this happen? After all, as John A. Broadus famously remarked, "Preaching is characteristic of Christianity." In this powerful book, He Is Not Silent: ...

Overview


"Contemporary preaching suffers from a loss of confidence in the power of the Word, from an infatuation with technology, from an embarrassment before the biblical text, from an evacuation of biblical content, from a focus on felt needs, from an absence of gospel." Preaching, the practice of publicly expositing the Bible, has fallen on hard times. How did this happen? After all, as John A. Broadus famously remarked, "Preaching is characteristic of Christianity." In this powerful book, He Is Not Silent: Preaching in a Postmodern World, R. Albert Mohler Jr. shows us how. In a style both commanding and encouraging, Mohler lays the groundwork for preaching, fans the flame on the glory of preaching, and calls out with an urgent need for preaching. This message is desperately needed yet not often heard. Whether you're concerned or enthused by the state of the church today, join Mohler as he examines preaching and why the church can't survive without it.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"Where are the Spurgeons of this generation?"  So R. Albert Mohler concludes his call for expositional preaching in today's pulpits.  Thank God that the man occupying the position of the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary would write such a book as this!  Deeply theological, concerned and confident, this is a clearly written book with an important message on THE crucial topic for churches and preachers today.
-Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC and founder of 9Marks

This book shows a side of Dr. Mohler that many don't see. In addition to his roles as a seminary president, discerning observer of culture, and evangelical spokesman, Dr. Mohler excels as a preacher, passionate about God's Word and confident in its power to save. He Is Not Silent: Preaching in a Postmodern World instructs us in, and urges upon us, a view of preaching that is theologically profound, culturally aware, pastorally sensitive, and spiritually edifying. Evangelical pastors desperately need the clear, confident, and urgent plea that issues from these pages.

CJ Mahaney, President, Sovereign Grace Ministries

I preach because nothing else can satisfy the urgency and passion that God has ignited in my heart for His truth and His people. The same should be true for you. If you can go sell cars or shuffle stocks instead of being a pastor and preacher of God's Word, then go do that. For the rest of us, I'm grateful for my friend and mentor, Al Mohler who dares us to think beyond seminary syllabuses and safe homiletics. Careful-this book can change your ministry.
-
James MacDonald, Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel, Bible Teacher, Walk in the Word

Albert Mohler is one of North America's most trenchant, incisive analysts of Christianity and culture. In this passionate book, he makes a persuasive case for the kind of preaching that our culture needs: the faithful exposition of Holy Scripture, in which the Triune God speaks his own life-giving gospel for the salvation of sinners and the sanctification of his people.
-Philip Graham Ryken, Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Bible Teacher, Every Last Word

As President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. Al Mohler trains thousands of pastors and ministers to proclaim the Word of God with integrity and clarity. The book you hold is the result of a lifetime of challenging and developing effective Biblical preachers. I predict it will become a classic for the preparation and delivery of sermons that exalt Christ and strengthen God's church for generations to come.
-
Dr. Jack Graham, Pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church, Plano, Texas

"According to the Bible, exposition is preaching. And preaching is exposition."  Dr. Al Mohler's statement pretty well sums up this powerful volume on the theology of preaching. I wish every young man called to preach could be given a copy of this excellent volume on the necessity of expository preaching. It can transform any pastor's preaching ministry. Wouldn't hurt preachers of any age to read this one!
-
Jerry Vines, Pastor Emeritus, First Baptist Church, Jacksonville, FL and President of Jerry Vines Ministries, Inc.

Mohler at his best.  Chapter 7 alone is worth the price of the book!
-Alistair Begg, senior minister, Parkside Church, Cleveland, OH
