Item description for Preaching from the Types and Metaphors of the Bible (Kregel Reprint Library) by Benjamin Keach...
Overview No preacher will be short of arrestive messages if he lives in The Metaphors and in The Parables, Benjamin Keach gave to the world so long ago, and weaves into his personal treatment of any of them the addition of facts and features more recently discovered on some of the natural objects dealt with in these monumental homiletiacal works. In the original Preface of his luminous volume on Metaphors, Benjamin Keach quotes Augustine as saying that the Scripture seemed rude, and unpolished to him, in comparison with Cicero's adorned style, because he did not understand their inward beauty. But once his mind was illuminated to understand the Scriptures then no writing appeared so wise or even eloquent. In a most remarkable way, Keach understood the inward beauty of Bible Symbols and expounded same in a most unique way. To all Pastors who decide to take their people through the Metaphors of the Bible with the aid of dear old Benjamin Keach, we can promise them happy and effective preaching. One man is quoted saying "Read all the prophetic books without seeing Christ in them, and what will you find so insipid and flat? See Christ there, and what you read becomes fragrant." Is this not the experience of all who endeavor to rightly divide the Word of Truth?

Outstanding resource for your Biblical library. Jan 10, 2005
This book is as great of a resource on types and metaphors, as Bullinger's book (Figures of Speech used in the Bible) is on Figures is. This is a well researched book, with the best typological outline I've ever seen. This book is very thought provoking yet balanced and which demonstrates sound theology.
A great book on typology in the Bible Aug 23, 1998
This book is an asset to any preachers library. You will refer to it repeatedly when constructing sermon outlines. A great text for college typology courses also.
