He is Not Silent
Preaching in a Postmodern World
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 a crying absence of the 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 a style both commanding and encouraging, author Al 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.
