The Kind of Preaching God Blesses (La prédication bénie par Dieu)
The true power of preaching, that is, the power that brings about true revival and transforms lives, comes from God alone. This is why it is so essential to preach the Word of God following the pattern given to us in the scriptures.
In this book, Steven J. Lawson, an experienced pastor and excellent Bible popularizer, examines the model of preaching that Paul presents to us in 1 Corinthians 2: 9–9. He encourages ministers of the Gospel to accomplish their mission of faithfully proclaiming divine truth by helping them understand:
- the priority of biblical preaching - the main responsibility of every pastor;
- the poverty of modern preaching - what is lacking in the ministry of the Word today;
- the power of the Spirit in preaching - what makes the difference between effective and ineffective ministry of the Word.
This book provides much advice and encouragement to preachers wishing to minister in a way that honors God.
