From the Back Cover
This book guides readers through a ten-step process to preaching Old Testament narratives from text selection to delivery. The second edition has been updated and revised throughout and includes a new chapter on how to preach Christ from the Old Testament.
"Mathewson provides preachers with a sensible and practical manual for sermon preparation. Along the way, he also manages to offer an insightful handbook on reading biblical narrative well. I am happy to recommend it to anyone whose desire is to understand Old Testament narratives and communicate them effectively. Your listeners will thank you for taking the time to read and implement these strategies!"
--Carmen Joy Imes, Biola University; author of Bearing God's Name: Why Sinai Still Matters
"The challenges of preaching from Old Testament narratives are significant. When the cultural gap between us and the biblical world is so great, how do we make sure that the message we are passing on to our congregations is what the stories are designed to communicate? Mathewson has combined the best of Old Testament literary scholarship with his many years of homiletical experience, and he's given us a guidebook on how to faithfully preach from these most important parts of the Bible."
--Tim Mackie, cofounder of the BibleProject
"Mathewson provides emerging preachers a crucial guide for moving from the text of Old Testament narratives to faithful, effective sermons. In its second edition, The Art of Preaching Old Testament Narrative is stronger than ever, offering students and church leaders eminently accessible and practical guidelines for communicating the truths of these narratives in all of their beauty and power."
--Michelle Knight, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"Can the art of storytelling be taught--especially when it pertains to ancient biblical narratives? Not only does Mathewson think so, but he gives us a master class, workshop, manual, and handbook all in one in this spirited work. He is a sage guide offering pastors and teachers of God's Word field-tested principles and practices. This book will be the go-to resource for preaching Old Testament narratives for this generation and generations to come."
--Matthew D. Kim, Haddon W. Robinson Center for Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
