Item description for Preaching God's Word: A Hands-On Approach to Preparing, Developing, and Delivering the Sermon by Terry G. Carter, J. Scott Duvall & J. Daniel Hays...

This user-friendly practical textbook helps preachers and homiletics students develop and deliver biblically based expository sermons relevant for the twenty-first century.

Publishers Description
People in churches today are hungry for a word from God. Preachers need to prepare and deliver sound biblical sermons that connect with their audience in a meaningful way. Whether you are a student new to preaching or a veteran looking to brush up your preaching skills, here is a valuable resource.Good preaching begins with good exegesis. Preaching God's Word walks you through the steps of the 'Interpretive Journey' from the biblical text to contemporary application: * Grasp the text in 'Their Town' (what it meant to the original audience).* Measure the width of the river that separates the biblical context from today.* Cross the 'Principalizing Bridge' by identifying the timeless theological principles.* Grasp the text in 'Our Town.'While the science of solid biblical interpretation is essential to effective preaching, it must be married to the art of contemporary communication in order to bring the message home. Preaching God's Word also shows you how to understand your audience, develop powerful applications, use illustrations well, and deliver the sermon effectively. The concluding chapters discuss the unique preaching challenges presented by the various biblical genres, providing interpretive keys, things to avoid, and numerous examples.'Carter, Duvall, and Hays have given us a basic and worthy manual of how-to's for preaching. Now since Haddon Robinson's classic text has a book taken such a practical and understandable, step-by-step approach to the sermon.'-Calvin Miller, Professor of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School'In a day when the church-world is lulled into complacency by sermons that are little more than entertaining homilies on good values and fix-it paradigms, here is a guide to proclamation the way it was meant to be...biblical, understandable, and transforming.'-Joseph M. Stowell, Teaching Pastor, Harvest Bible Church; Former President, Moody Bible Institute.

Reviews - What do customers think about Preaching God's Word?

Average - Save the $$$  Mar 21, 2007
I was really excited to get this book after reading the previous review and also reading reviews of Grasping God's Word by the same authors. Grasping God's word is a pretty decent book on hermeneutics, but this book was a major disappointment. It is basically a simplified version of Haddon Robinson's classic work, Biblical Preaching. The book is way too simple for a seminary level book. A good beginner's book for those who have never preached, or taken a course, but not recommended for those wanting to really improve.

Their whole principled approach to Scripture is a little bit strange. Anyway, the sermons look just like any other using Haddon's approach. If you really want a fresh new book on preaching, get Andy Stanley's Communicating for a Change. You'll begin to communicate, and not just preach!

Read this book at a good library, and then see if you really want to buy it. If you have to buy it for a class, get it used.

Ten step method presented in the book:
1 - Grasp the meaning of the text in their town
2 - Measure the Width of the Interpretive River
3 - Cross the Principlizing Bridge
4 - Grasp the Text in Our Town
5 - Exegete Your Congregation
6 - Determine How much Background material to Include
7 - Determine the Sermon Thesis and Main Points
8 - Develop Text-Centered Applications
9 - Find Illustrations
10 - Write Out the Sermon and Practice Delivery

Go ahead and buy know you want to...  Dec 5, 2005
I read this book for a Homiletics class which was taught by Dr. Carter. This book is a well written book and is a must have for anyone interested in becoming an effective communicator. There are practical steps to interpreting God's Word correctly and how to deal with the different biblical genres, how to find illustrations for your sermons, how to communicate to different types of audiences, making the Bible relevant to your audience, different sermon delivery styles, and much more. Anyone who gives talks to any audience (children, youth, or adults) will want to get this book. It will make a massive difference in not only your handling of the Bible, but also the delivery of the Word to your audience.
