Description: The preparation of sermons on Old Testament texts confronts preachers time and time again with such questions as How can I connect an Old Testament text with the situation of my congregation today in a responsible way? and What is the role of Jesus in that connection?
In this practical, scholarly guidebook Rein Bos tackles such questions and offers thoughtful answers. We Have Heard That God Is with You gives pastors a creative and innovative “grammar” to preach the Old Testament in a Christian context. Bos offers multiple examples from American sermons to illustrate how his model can be used in sermon preparation and how it can serve the practice of preaching. Each chapter is a rich meal for the busy preacher looking for creative, relevant options for sermons that are faithful to Scripture.
