"Evangelicals are countercultural in insisting on the centrality of preaching. We believe that the preached word creates life, just as it did when Ezekiel proclaimed the word to the dry bones. It is salutary, then, to return to the first Testament. Luter and Wells fix our attention on Jesus and the apostles as proclaimers of the word. Not all will agree with every conclusion, but the authors rightly stress the importance of oral preaching and remind us that the New Testament documents have a homiletic purpose.'
