Him We Proclaim: Preaching Christ from All the Scriptures

by Dennis E. Johnson
     
 
Challenging modern preachers to expound the Bible like Peter and Paul, Him We Proclaim makes the hermeneutical and historical case for a return to apostolic preaching—preaching that is Christ-centered, redemptive-historical, missiologically communicated, and grounded in grace. But moving beyond theory, Him We Proclaim provides examples of how this method applies

Overview

Challenging modern preachers to expound the Bible like Peter and Paul, Him We Proclaim makes the hermeneutical and historical case for a return to apostolic preaching—preaching that is Christ-centered, redemptive-historical, missiologically communicated, and grounded in grace. But moving beyond theory, Him We Proclaim provides examples of how this method applies to all Old and New Testament genres—history; law; psalm; prophecy; doctrine and exhortation.

Editorial Reviews

Bryan Chapell
If only we could learn to preach like Peter and Paul. The wish becomes solid reality in Dennis Johnson's wonderful advocacy of preaching Jesus Christ in the 21st century as the apostles did in the first. Under Johnson's tutelage preaching apostolic, Christ-centered, redemptive-historical, missiological sermons that are grace driven becomes a dream within reach.
Thomas R. SchreinerJames Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament InterpretationThe Southern Bap
Dennis Johnson has written a magnificent book that magnifies Christ in all of scripture. Every preacher and teacher of the Scriptures should read this gem of the book. Johnson convincingly explains and defends the thesis that Christ should be proclaimed from all of Scripture. But he also illustrates with specific examples what it looks like to proclaim Christ in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. This book is exegetically faithful, theologically profound, and practically helpful. I wish I had a read a book like this when I started my theological education thirty years ago.
R. Kent Hughes
Apostolic hermeneutics? Dare we read the Scripture backward as well as forward? Dennis Johnson’s answer is a marvelously informed, and convincing ‘yes!’ Yes, we can read and interpret and teach as the apostles did. “Him We Proclaim” is sure to be widely read and discussed both in the academy and by groups of serious-minded preachers of the Word. Sure to become a staple in the homiletical discussion of the twenty-first century.
