Item description for Him We Proclaim: Preaching Christ from All the Scriptures by Dennis E. Johnson...

Challenging modern preachers to expound the Bible like Peter and Paul, this book makes the hermeneutical and historical case for a return to apostolic preaching - preaching that is Christ-centered, redemptive-historical, missiologically communicated, and grounded in grace. But moving beyond theory, Him We Proclaim provides examples of how this method applies to all Old and New Testament genres, from history and law to psalm and prophecy to doctrine and exhortation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Him We Proclaim: Preaching Christ from All the Scriptures?

The Goal Of Our Instruction  Jan 4, 2008
'Truly apostolic preaching is not ethical imperative ungrounded in theological indicative. It is not psychological manipulation, moralistic harangue based on guilt, or pragmatic life coaching, untethered to the truth of Christ's redemptive accomplishment on behalf of others.' pg 177

Johnson's life-work is Christocentric to its core and inspiring in its allegiance to the fidelity of timeless truth. His unique and rich portrayal of Christ at the center of life and Scripture, is recommended reading and insightful scholarship. This added to my understanding of revelation in a truly comprehensive biblical way.

The variables that enter into receiving the Word are many. Not everyone attends church regularly every Sunday. Not everyone attended Seminary. Many Christians hear the saving Word amidst fear of reprisal and under threat of death. Yet Christ said: 'My sheep hear My voice, and I know them and they follow Me.' John 10:27

How this is effectually communicated is portrayed by Proff Johnson in this study of preaching and preachers: both old and new. 'Since God commissions and sends preachers (Rom 10:15; Matt 28:18-20), the right to define the purpose of preaching is His.' pg 63

Calvinistic preaching contends that God be glorified through proclamation. Only as and when God is justified, fallen man's need for salvation is exposed. One surefire way of achieving this end is in taking the text as primary source. '...the apostolic preacher must be prepared to answer to his Master as one found faithful in administering his stewardship, both preserving and propagating the message of life without modifying its content.' pg 65

Observance of the Word brings believers comfort and assurance. 'The apostolic model of parenesis (exhortation) in the NT grounds believer's obligations in the Gospel itself, showing how the indicatives describing Christ's saving work precede and entail the imperatives that define our believing response to His mercy.' pg 42 We may safely grow in grace knowing all we are called to do, our Lord did and said, and was repeated in word and deed by the apostles, to our exclusive benefit and instruction. 'What John needed to learn, as did Jesus' disciples at a later point (Acts 1: 6-8), was that God reserves the right to fulfill His promises in His own way, even if His ways should contradict our natural, normal, ordinary, literal reading of those promises.' pg 143

'God's truth in Christ exposes and refutes false ideas about the nature of the divine, the nature of humanity, and the purpose of the universe.' pg 65 This may mean that not only sin, but subjective reality is to be combatted in the walk of a Christian. The problem is the human heart settled in opposition to God. It appears even '...when Paul challenges the mature (Gk teleios) at Philippi to share his recognition that he has not yet been perfected (Gk teleioo), Phil 3:15.' pg 66 Thus sound teaching and admonition combine to alter one's wrong life perspectives - only then effectively altering the subjective Christian experience consistently, effecting sanctification.

The hermeneutical model that Johnson has described so glowingly is truly the heart and soul of this exploration. To the evidently hard-of-hearing, as I myself once was, there comes the discovery of a lifetime in the connecting of what once was heard and knew to be true, to this credible book. Much to my surprise the biblical-theological understanding of the Bible's message is completely familiar, but also makes previously veiled portions of Scripture, such as prophecy and fulfillment, altogether a whole lot more discernable as truth the whole counsel of God.

'The redemptive events narrated in the Old Testament had a symbolic depth that (meant) with the coming of Christ, physical Old Testament types and prophecies are fulfilled in ways that transcend the physical.' pg 137

Generating unbelievable examples from passages that I thought I had a full grasp on, Proff Johnson applies this model in such a way that the thoughtful seeker of truth comes not only to appreciate, but admire as the rich topography of Biblical Theology unfolds. Johnson interacts with the major scholarship of evangelical hermeneutics and drives home a real desire to see a homiletical correspondent to the 'all Scripture is given by inspiration of God.'

'If Christian preachers claim that God's promise to restore David's son to his throne is fulfilled in Jesus' heavenly session (as does Peter in Acts 2: 30-36), can such a non-literal fulfillment serve any persuasive purpose to draw unbelievers to the faith?' pg 142

This sizeable theological treatise commands much appreciation, as the rich fabric woven is most intimately God-exalting and unquestionably the best resource available on the hermeneutical subject.
A much needed book!!  Nov 26, 2007
Buy it, read it, and be blessed. It is a dry read, but the content is incredible!!
