Item description for Gospel Handles: Finding New Connections in Biblical Texts by Francis C. Rossow...

Gospel Handles is an exciting reference tool for preachers, and a devotional resource for everyone! Pastors are always looking for fresh, imaginative ways to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. With Gospel Handles, you'll learn new techniques to achieve that goal. Homiletics professor "Rev" Rossow says: "A Gospel handle involves the selection from a biblical sermon text of an excerpt that contains absolutely no Gospel whatsoever; the preacher then uses this excerpt as an approach, bridge, or handle to an account of the Gospel somewhere else in the Bible. For example, Psalm 121:1 says, 'I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help.' That verse contains no explicit Gospel text, but one way to lift up our eyes to the hills for God's help is to gaze in faith at the person and work of the Lord Jesus on the hill of Calvary. That's the Gospel-handle technique at work." Using the beloved King James version of the Bible, Rossow masterfully provides the reader with Gospel messages in surprising, unexpected places. He does this by analyzing each lesson from Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John for all Sundays and major festivals in the church year. So this book can be used effectively by any pastor in any denomination. What's more, Gospel Handles is written in a lucid, readable style. It can easily be used for personal or family devotions by everyone who wants to know more about what God has done and continues to do for them through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Publishers Description
Discover every opportunity to preach the Gospel.

As a pastor, you know how important it is to distinguish properly between Law and Gospel. You also know there must be a proper balance between them. This resource helps highlight the Gospel message in various biblical texts from the four Gospels. It also provides "Gospel-handles" to help connect the non-Gospel language of certain passages to descriptions of the Gospel in other texts.

Gospel Handles examines the texts for every Sunday and major church festival in the three-year lectionary series of The Lutheran Church -- Missouri Synod and is conveniently arranged in scriptural order. Draw on these insights and add the Gospel-handle approach to your weekly sermon preparation.
