Preaching Christ (Prêcher Christ)
Should we still preach the Gospel today?
The question may be surprising, but it is not trivial. New means of communication are constantly emerging. Don't they replace preaching? Especially since they often have a big impact. Many Christians wonder if the time has not come to move with the modern world to reach out to the society around them. In return, they find that the Bible advocates and enjoins the preaching of the gospel as a means and method of imparting the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ. It also assures us that it is on this preaching that the Spirit of God comes to breathe to produce life in the sheep of Christ.
What to think?
The author is firmly based on the belief that proclaiming the Word of God is still the divine method of touching hearts for salvation. But he goes further. He vigorously asserts that it is essential for the preaching of this good news to have content, and that that content is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
In short, relevant and concrete chapters, he examines what should be the subject of the preaching, what was the practice of the apostles and of Jesus himself, as well as their sources and methods.
He thus emphasizes that the preaching of Christ is the great need of the Church today to recover power and health. He offers in this a welcome guide and a great encouragement, both to the preacher and to the listener, to see the lives and beings transformed by the Lord of the Word.
