Him We Proclaim: Preaching Christ from All the Scriptures by Dennis E. Johnson

512 pages | $24.99 | Paperback | Published: 2007

Summary: Challenging modern preachers to expound the Bible like Peter and Paul, Him We Proclaim makes the hermeneutical and historical case for a return to apostolic preaching—preaching that is Christ-centered, redemptive-historical, missiologically communicated, and grounded in grace. But moving beyond theory, Him We Proclaim provides examples of how this method applies to all Old and New Testament genres—history; law; psalm; prophecy; doctrine and exhortation.

What Others Are Saying About This Book:

“This book holds the promise of the recovery of biblical preaching for those who will give themselves to the demanding and glorious task of setting each text within the context of God’s redemptive plan. This is a book that belongs on every preacher’s bookshelf.” – R. Albert Mohler Jr.

“Apostolic hermeneutics? Dare we read the Scripture backward as well as forward? Dennis Johnson’s answer is a marvelously informed and convinceing ‘yes!’ Him We Proclaim is sure to be widely read and discussed both in the academy and by groups of serious-minded preachers of the Word.” – R. Kent Hughes

“If only we could learn to preach like Peter and Paul. The wish becomes solid reality in Dennis Johnson’s wonderful advocacy of preaching Jesus Christ in the twenty-first centruy as the apostles did in the first. Under Johnson’s tutelage, preaching apostolic, Christ-centered, redemptive-historical, missiological sermons that are grace-driven becomes a dream within reach.”Bryan Chapell
