9781846251085: Jesus Christ: The Prince of preachers--Learning from the teaching ministry of Jesus

Since preaching is God s ordained means of disseminating truth, it behooves Bible teachers to preach well and congregations to listen well. This study of Jesus Christ's preaching will assist both the preacher and the congregation in their quests to honor the Lord with their respective responsibilities in worship. While there are many definitions and descriptions of preaching today, preaching like Jesus must be the unchanging standard for all who dare teach the Bible. Preaching fads come and go, yet the manner and method of the Lord s preaching is always relevant, right and worthy to be emulated.

About the Author:

Mike Abendroth was born in Omaha, Nebraska and graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1982. He was saved by God s intervening grace in 1989. After his father died, he bought a study Bible and began reading it beginning with Genesis. Since then, Mike has been consumed with knowing what the Lord says in His Word. He graduated from The Master's Seminary (M. Div., 1996) and became the pastor of Bethlehem Bible Church, West Boylston, Massachusetts (1997). Recently, he received his Doctorate of Ministry in Expository Preaching at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (2006). Mike has been married to Kimberly for eighteen years and has three daughters, Hayley, Maddie and Gracie, and one son, Luke. He has been preaching expository sermons on a weekly basis for fifteen years. One of Mike s passions is teaching men to teach the Bible expositionally and his Doctoral dissertation title is 'Training Laymen to Teach the Bible Expositionally'. He is an Adjunct Professor of Theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary where he teaches homiletics.

Review:

Abendroth's insightful work is so helpful, calling Christians today to consider the model of the Master Teacher Himself. Thoroughly biblical and intensely practical, this Christ-centered treatment on preaching deserves a place on every pastor s bookshelf. In a day when so many pulpits are less than weak, it is a timely and necessary challenge to those who are called to preach the Word (2 Tim. 4:2). But this book is not only for those in church leadership. It also articulates what each congregation should expect from their teaching pastor, as they lovingly hold him to the standard set by our Lord. --John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California

The greatest preacher of the written Word is, undoubtedly, the living Word Himself, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. If we are commanded to walk as He walked, then surely we must preach as He preached. This is the central thrust of this well-developed book, Jesus: The Prince of Preachers, by Mike Abendroth. This work addresses what is surely the greatest need in the church today. Not merely more preaching is needed, but more preaching of a certain kind--expository preaching, especially the kind as demonstrated by the sovereign Head of the church, Jesus Christ. Abendroth takes great care to lay out the case that all preachers should model themselves after the ministry of the Lord Jesus Himself. If there was more preaching as this book calls for, the church would soon be restored to a state of spiritual health. Here is a book that is biblical, balanced, and bold in its presentation of truth. Read it and replicate it for the equipping of your ministry and the edification of the church. --Dr. Steven J. Lawson, Senior Pastor

I cannot imagine a preacher who would not be helped by this book. Mike Abendroth writes from years of local church pulpit ministry combined with a wide reading of books about preaching to produce a volume that is insightful, instructive, encouraging, practical, readable, and biblically sound. He delivers exactly what his subtitle promises: "Learning from the teaching ministry of Jesus." But Abendroth delivers even more than he promises, for readers will not only learn a great deal about Christ and preaching, but also about pastoral ministry, discipleship, worship, and much more. And he does it all in an imaginative format that is accessible for almost everyone. If you are a preacher, read this book. If you are not a preacher, read it, and then give it to your Preacher. --Dr Donald Whitney, Associate Professor of Biblical Spirituality and Senior Associate Dean at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky
