Preaching Christ from the Old Testament:
A Contemporary Hermeneutical Method

Sidney Greidanus (Eerdmans, 1999)

Blurb Review

Blurb

Sidney Greidanus here presents an essential guide to preaching Christ from the Old Testament. Arguing for the need both to preach Christ in every sermon and to preach regularly from the Old Testament, Greidanus develops a Christocentric method that will help preachers do both simultaneously. This volume combines contemporary hermeneutical principles with numerous practical suggestions for effective biblical preaching, making it a fundamental text for anyone involved in handling the Bible. Helpfully concludes with some examples of what it would look like to follow Greidanus' method in practice. Highly recommended. We suggest it should be read in conjunction with Graeme Goldsworthy's "Preaching the Whole Bible as Christian Scripture" with an eye to some differences in method between them.*
