"This book holds the promise of the recovery of biblical preaching for those who will give themselves to the demanding and glorious task of setting each text within the context of God's redemptive plan. This is a book that belongs on every preacher's bookshelf." --R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Apostolic hermeneutics? Dare we read the Scripture backward as well as forward? Dennis Johnson's answer is a marvelously informed and convincing 'yes!' Him We Proclaim is sure to be widely read and discussed both in the academy and by groups of serious-minded preachers of the Word." --R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, IL
"If only we could learn to preach like Peter and Paul. The wish becomes solid reality in Dennis Johnson's wonderful advocacy of preaching Jesus Christ in the twenty-first century as the apostles did in the first. Under Johnson's tutelage, preaching apostolic, Christ-centered, redemptive-historical, missiological sermons that are grace-driven becomes a dream within reach." --Bryan Chapell, President and Professor of Practical Theology, Covenant Theological Seminary, and author of Christ-Centered Preaching
