Best Method of Preaching, The
1 in stock
In this book, Petrus van Mastricht presents pastors with the best method of preaching available. Dividing the task of preaching into four aspects (planning, arrangement, parts of a sermon and delivery), he analyses how each part is meant to work, gives rules for working through each one and discusses how each part is to aim at, and interact with, the affections of the hearers.
He uses Colossians 3:1 as an example to show his student how to progress through this method of preaching. Van Mastricht's work on preaching demonstrates the concern of sixteenth - and seventeenth - century Reformed theologians that even the most precise and technical theology is meant to aid preachers in addressing the church with God's Word.
"Petrus van Mastricht's brief summary of the essential points of good preaching is sure to become a standard reference... Clear and concise, this book should be essential reading for young and seasoned preachers."
