Item description for Tongues Aflame: Learning to Preach from the Apostles by Roger Wagner...

Overview
When you left seminary or took up your present pastorate you were going to set the church aflame with your sound Biblical exposition, your sweeping theological insights and your homiletical eloquence. To do so you have to preach like Paul - or Peter - or Stephen! Roger Wagner sets out to give you the insights you need. He first looks at the characteristics of New Testament preaching and then looks in more detail at 10 sermons preached in Acts by Peter (3), Paul (6) and Stephen. An appendix deals with how to preach to the modern, pluralist, materialist, pagan society we live in. Dissatisfied with your sermons? You too could preach like an Apostle! From the introduction by Roger Wagner: "You are already accustomed to using the scriptures for the content of your messages. Now I am calling you to examine the way the sermons in Acts can give you insights into how to shape the form of your messages. Let the apostolic preachers be your examples of how to deliver sermons that will be powerful and effective."

Reviews - What do customers think about Tongues Aflame?

Homiletics 101  Sep 22, 2007
Wagner is consistent and penetrating in his observations. He expounds on the Apostle's homiletics in the first part of the book, thereby laying the foundation for their theology to be Christo-centric.

However, it was when dealing with the individual sermons in Acts themselves, that Wagner came into his full right. He analyzes and questions and answers all in one breath. The time-honored act of preaching is researched back to its origin, God. Agreeably, Wagner avers that the Apostles were commissioned by Christ to preach, and as such, their preaching should model all subsequent biblical utterances.

One very interesting observation was made by Wagner, when stating that 'when Peter stood up and spoke with a loud voice' in Acts 2, the Greek word used is 'apophthegomai' - literally meaning to prophesy. This word corresponds to the OT usage in the Septuagint. And so preaching originally could only have been divine and inspired prophecy. (*remembering that there was no Bible as yet to preach from, so the Apostles had to be inspired by the Holy Spirit to 'prophecy' God's Word) Could this be credible evidence of prophecy being 'divine utterance' and therefore what is purported by today's prophetic movement as prophecy, actually be hyper-pneumatic drivel?

A solid study of Acts and a valuable addition to homiletics.
