Aug 19, Jordan Shirkman rated it it was amazing. An incredibly practical, compelling book on preaching Christ.
Jun 04, Matt Pitts rated it really liked it Shelves: preaching. Christ-Centered Preaching is perhaps a modern classic and certainly one of the greatest preaching texts of the last 30 years or more.
It is broken up into three sections principles, preparation, and theology and has a wealth of additional information in the appendixes everything from how to dress and speak to how to prepare a funeral message.
Despite its great reputation, I was afraid it would read like a text book - helpful at points, certainly informative, but dry as a bone. The first sect Christ-Centered Preaching is perhaps a modern classic and certainly one of the greatest preaching texts of the last 30 years or more. The first section of the book surprised me as it was easy and even enjoyable to read and was full of insight.
The second section, which gets into the nuts and bolts of how to prepare a sermon, was wonderfully helpful, but oh so long! I was really helped by the chapter on outlining, but thought it would never end it runs about 45 pages.
I don't think I ever would have finished the book or even section two if I hadn't been reading it with a friend.
Perhaps the most helpful thing about part 3 is that it counters false and superficial approaches to preaching Christ with a more biblically faithful, truly expository approach to preaching Christ. Though 'Christ-Centered Preaching' is a legitimate title for the book, I think it might have been more faithfully titled 'Grace-Centered Preaching. His main concern is that those who hear walk away looking not to their own works but to the grace of God. Overall a great text that covers the gamut on preaching with a clear and thorough gospel focus.
This book is one of the top 3 books I've read while in seminary. It might even be the best. It was certainly the most helpful. I plan to look to it again and again for practical and frequent help in future ministry. Great, fairly exhaustive book on the expository method of preaching. He makes a bigger deal out of what he calls the FCF Fallen Condition Focus than I think should be made; however, it is a helpful concept.
I read this years ago for a class that I never finished. I am now taking the class again to finish it this time. Lots of good footnotes for further reading.
Dec 19, Bill rated it really liked it Shelves: ministry , theology. How can you preach a Christ-centred sermon when Jesus isn't mentioned in the section of the Bible you're preaching from? How can you avoid implying acceptence by works and promoting moralism when the passage you're preaching from contains nothing but commands? Bryan Chapel is the go-to guy for answers. He had a big influence on me when I heard him speak at a conference just as I was beginning to preach by the way, you can get the core of his position by listening to a few talks on the net.
So How can you preach a Christ-centred sermon when Jesus isn't mentioned in the section of the Bible you're preaching from?
So I read this to explore his model further. It's a longer, denser book than I was expecting -- it's a preaching textbook. It addresses theology and practice of Christ-centred or redemptive expository preaching, as well as general preaching theory, and it is a bit repetitive at times. A helful, encouraging, comprehensive and very practical book. I wouldn't necessarily plan to read it cover to cover -- doing so took me 2 years! The first and third sections contain the material on Christ centred preaching and the middle section could be dipped into for guidance on preaching nuts and bolts.
Excellent: an enthusiastic recommendation from me. Jul 23, Brenden Link rated it liked it Shelves: practical-theology. Today, especially in America, Evangelicals suffer from a profound inability to read any literary text well.
For example, Lewis explained: "We sit down before a picture in order to have something done to us, not that we may do things with it. The first demand any work of art makes upon us is surrender.
Get yourself out of the way. There is no good asking first whether the work before you deserves such a surrender, for until you have surrendered you cannot possibly find out. Rather it must be appropriated, deconstructed, and made more relevant. Rather than receiving a story for its own sake, on its own terms, Chapell encourages preachers to search for universal principles instead. Does this mean that the Scriptures are never practical?
Absolutely not. The Bible certainly has application value; but it is often not the kind we expect. In Acts 8 we have the story of the Ethiopian eunuch.
After worshipping in Jerusalem, his is returning to his own land while holding in his hand a foreign text But as he reads he is confused.
The next thing we read, he is baptized into a whole new world Michael Horton writes: "The biblical story does not simply illumine our existence: it throws our whole existence into turmoil. It does not merely answer our questions: it reveals the banality of our questions and gives us new questions that set us on a path to profound discovery.
It is not supplemental, but subversive. Thus, the goal is not to relate the Bible to our experience which is really to say, judge the Bible by our experience , but vice versa. This is something lacking in Chapell's hermeneutical theory. Following the lead of literary scholars like Robert Alter and Eric Auerbach, Paul Ricoeur stressed the incomparable power of biblical narrative to affect the reader or hearer.
He adds that it is the fullest grasping of this literary art that proceeds to the sharpest perception of the theological intention" Figuring the Sacred, So then, narrative has unique ability to heighten our perception and reception of meaning. But that is not all. Thus, above and beyond emotions, disposition, belief, or nonbelief, is the proposition of a world that in the biblical language is called a new world, a new covenant, the kingdom of God, a new birth. These are the realities unfolded before the text, which are certainly for us, but which begin from the text" p.
Thus, narrative not only heightens our emotions and engages our minds, but it also presents us with a whole new world. But this new world is not just any world.
