Preaching the Gospels and Acts

The Gospels are the heart of the Bible. They declare that the center of human history is found in God's act of sending His only Son. And this message must be proclaimed, from the first days of the church (captured in Acts) to now. Yet, these five books are also complex, drawing together discourse and narrative, history and prophecy and apocalyptic, theology and ethics.

Preaching Old Testament History

Everybody loves a good story. From the storybooks of our childhood to the latest blockbuster movie, a good story has the ability to create drama with words, capturing our attention and imagination. The Bible is full of stories, with some of the best known found in the Old Testament historical books.
