Editorial Reviews

Review

This book deserves to be read and reread to light the fire of passion and conviction for all who would publicly proclaim, 'Thus says the Lord.' --Erwin Lutzer: Moody Church, Chicago

This book combines the wisdom and experience of a number of the foremost preachers of the present day. If it is received as it ought to be, we may yet see a mighty change for good in the current spiritual scene. I hope it will be widely read. --Iain Murray: Co-founder, Banner of Truth Trust Edinburghm Scotland

Here some of this generation's most skilled shepherds provide passionate explanations of the priority and power of preaching God's Word so that it is a feast for Christ's sheep. --Bryan Chapell: President, Covenant Theological Seminary St. Louis, Mo.

Format: Paperback
Contributors to this book argue that the preached word of God has become a diminished part of Sunday morning worship service in the United States. Pastors and their congregations want other means of worship to be more prominent. When the pastor does preach, less is spoken about what is written in the Bible, but a form of psychology and/or an alternative World view is `shared'. Seeking more bodies in the pews, God's word has been left behind.

R. Albert Mohler, one of the contributors to Feed My Sheep, agrees that Gods word cannot exist without God's people, but he completes the quote from Martin Luther "...... and conversely God's people cannot exist without God's word." Furthermore Paul argued for the word to be preached:

of which I became a minister according to the divine office which was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known, the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now made manifest to his saints. (Colossians 1:25-26 RSV)

It is the Pastor's job to proclaim God's word to inspire the listener to seek the will of God and to correct the hearers of God's word in any misimpression of God's written word and direct disobedience to God's word:

Him we proclaim, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man mature in Christ.
(Colossians 1:28 RSV)

John Montgomery Boice tells how God chooses to bring salvation into a person's life. The proclaimed word of God should tell of man's sinful state and his ultimate destination is hell. No one can avoid his just reward unless another takes the punishment for his sin. Jesus has done this for those who accept Him as Lord and Savior. God chooses man to spread the good news. Through the Holy Spirit God works upon man's heart.

Format: Paperback
The Fact that this book is excellent should be no surprise, merely take a glance at the authors. This book will probably offend pastors who are in to the modern pop pyschology, but then they probably wouldn't be reading it anyway. Granted, that was probably unfair but...
Naturally some chapters are better than others, here are a few:
"The Lasting Effect of Experimental Preaching"--the essay on spiritual formation--worth the price of the book.
"The Primacy of Preaching"--by Albert Mohler--very good, a wake up call to the church.
"Expository Preaching"--good and bad examples of expository preaching, very fun chapter.
"Preaching to Suffering People"--by John Piper. It is by Piper, enough said.
"A reminder to Shepherds"--By John Macarthur, a fitting close to a fine book.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Jacques Schoeman on September 27, 2007
Format: Paperback
In this volume, some of the most sound preachers of our day explain and defend why they continue to be true to the expository and the lectio continua method of preaching the biblical text, as opposed to just about every Enlightenment deviation. It also underscores the need for sound seminary education.

'It is wrong for a man to impose his system violently upon any particular text; but at the same time it is vital that his interpretation of any particular text should be checked and controlled by this system, this body of doctrine and of truth which is found in the Bible.' Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Preaching & Preachers pp. 66-67

But Derek Thomas warns against clerical perfectionism, 'Its (the sermon's) research has even created a Gnostic view that only the few - those endowed by a special wisdom and insight - can possibly be trusted to understand what the Bible says. The sermon fails to underline the Reformational emphasis on the perspicuity of Scripture: 'that not only the learned, but the unlearned, in a due use of the ordinary means, may attain a sufficient understanding of them.' A Reformed sacerdotalism has emerged, with the preacher squarely resident between the Bible and the listener.' p 83

RC Sproul informs that at times of backsliding and apostasy, the message to be delivered may very well be that of God's imminent judgment. The OT repeatedly tells us of false prophets who gainsaid the message of God's prophets by promising peace and prosperity: '...the greatest threat to the security of the nation was not the armies of the Syrians, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, or the Philistines.

To be called a sheep in today's world is an insult. But if there are no sheep, what need is there for the shepherd? "Feed My Sheep: A Passionate Plea for Preaching" is a discussion of the recent surge of individuality, to the point that many preachers no longer feel they are having any positive effect on society. Eleven pastors urge church leaders to continue to preach the word, and offer much advice in inspiring them to do so in spite of it all. "Feed My Sheep: A Passionate Plea for Preaching" is well recommended for any preacher who needs motivating.

Format: Hardcover
I have to admit a few things as I begin writing about this book. I love preaching. I love to hear preaching. I love to read preached sermons. I love to read about preaching: mechanics, theory, necessity, etc. I love preaching.

I also love preachers. I feel greatly indebted to the men who have given their lives to the public proclamation of God's Word. I love to read their sermons. I love to read their books. I love to learn about them, their lives, and their faith. I just am sincerely blessed by God-fearing Bible-believing Gospel preachers. So when I had the opportunity through the program with Reformation Trust Publishing([...]) to read this book and review it, I was eager to do so.

The contributors to this text are top notch. The topics they cover are varied and interesting. As I began reading this book, I was quite excited--diving through the first four chapters in no time.

Al Mohler's chapter entitled, "The Primacy of Preaching," sets out to support the argument that "we must affirm with Martin Luther that the preaching of the Word is the first essential mark of the church", and I must confess that Mohler does an excellent job of this. He then goes to work recollecting the neo-orthodox recovery of preaching under HH Farmer. The section of his chapter that most ministered to me was the one entitled, "Hidden Results, Frequent Controversies". In this section, Mohler shows what I believe to be the toughest challenge facing men who sincerely desires to faithfully proclaim God's Word.

The preacher may sound like Luther on Sunday, but he feels like bathing in Ecclesiastes on Monday morning: "Vanity, vanity, all is vanity." Preaching can seem like striving after the wind.
