Overview

“Jeffrey Arthurs offers us a great deal of help to take us away from turning out cookie cutter sermons and allowing us to preach God’s Word with imagination and freshness.”

—Haddon W. Robinson
Harold John Ockenga Professor of Preaching
Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
Author, Biblical Preaching

“Variety—God is committed to it, and listeners need it. Prodded by these compelling observations, Arthurs tackles the variety in biblical literature—psalms, stories, parables, proverbs, epistles, and apocalyptic visions—and shows how to preach each one in a variety of ways. This is a clear and substantive book, written with wit and insight.”

—Donald Sunukjian
Professor of Preaching, Talbot School of Theology
Author, Invitation to Biblical Preaching

“In this well-written book, Jeffrey Arthurs carefully and concisely instructs preachers to preach from various biblical genres with skill. His insights and suggestions will help any pastor to preach with variety.”

—Scott M. Gibson
Haddon W. Robinson Professor of Preaching and Ministry
Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
Editor, Preaching the Old Testament

“One of the great needs of preaching in our day is to let the biblical text speak with its own voice, rather than trying to stuff it into a predictable, pre digested package. Jeffrey Arthurs offers valuable and practical insights that will help any preacher better communicate biblical truth with freshness and faithfulness.”

—Michael Duduit
Editor, Preaching magazine

“Jeffrey Arthurs is a wordsmith, a message-smith, a master communicator. You will learn much from him.”

—Craig Brian Larson
Editor, PreachingToday.com

Preaching with Variety reveals how pastors can preach creatively by borrowing the dynamics of six genres or forms found in the Bible. Each chapter includes practical “Try this” suggestions and ends with a quick checklist for preachers to consider when preaching from each of the six genres. Readers will learn how to expand their repertoire of creative, interesting, and relevant sermons.
