Editorial Reviews

Clergy Journal
Greidanus lays groundwork for the whole book when he writes about the necessity of preaching Christ and the necessity of preaching Christ from the Old Testament..... It has wonderful insights and is written in a splendid way. This would be the kind of book that most pastors ought to read.
Review and Expositor
As with his previous, The Modern Preacher and the Ancient Text, Greidanus is at his best when giving specific exegetical and homiletical suggestions. In addition, his history of the varied ways preachers have proclaimed Christ from the Old Testament is well-researched and is a unique contribution to the field. The book is an important part of an age-old debate.
Elizabeth in Interpretation Achtemeier
"This is a careful, clear, helpful volume, which can be useful to any preacher who wishes to preach "the whole counsel of God," joining Old and New Testaments.... A good book."
Ministries Today
"Sidney Greidanus makes a major contribution to modern preaching with this work.... A great resource tool for sermon preparation.... Greidanus achieves a scholarly work, but one that is filled with great insight and integrity."
