Overview

Preaching the Old Testament responsibly poses a challenge for busy pastors. With skill and realism, Using Old Testament Hebrew in Preaching provides a workable guide to unearthing its treasures.

Wegner emphasizes the importance of using Hebrew in preparation for preaching and offers a detailed process for moving from text to exegesis to proclamation. Homiletics and Hebrew students will profit from the bibliographies and illustrations that reinforce the benefits-to both the preacher and the congregation-that come when using the Old Testament's original language for preaching.

Using Old Testament Hebrew in Preaching will motivate professionals, pastors, and students to delve into the richness of the Hebrew Old Testament, and will equip them to probe new depths in preaching the Old Testament to contemporary believers.

"Though designed for students and pastors, this eminently practical, solidly grounded work will assist even the seasoned scholar who knows and teaches the Hebrew language to put it to work in practical ways in both the church and the academy. Wegner has filled a glaring gap in the 'must have' literature for the pastor's shelf."
-Eugene H. Merrill
Distinguished Professor of Old Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
Distinguished Professor of Old Testament Interpretation, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"What a wonderful book! Written in a winsome style, it should go a long way toward encouraging struggling seminarians to persevere in their Hebrew studies and showing them (and pastors currently in ministry) how to get the most out of the time they invested in studying Hebrew in the first place. It is chock-full of helpful hints and recommendations on everything, from the best commentaries and Bible software programs to how can one go "from text to sermon" using limited Hebrew skills in an informed way. I intend to recommend this highly to my students."
-David M. Howard Jr.
Professor of Old Testament, Bethel Seminary
