Stott, John R. W. y Scharf, Greg. The Challenge of Preaching. Carlisle: Langham Preaching Resources, 2011. pgs. 144. ISBN 9781907713118.

This book strongly challenges the notion that there is no place for preaching in the contemporary world. It sets out the theological case for preaching and then goes on to describe what constitutes good preaching. It does not focus on techniques to be used but on the nature of the task and the character of the one who preaches. The good preacher works to build a bridge between the listeners and the truth being proclaimed. To be able to do this, the preacher must study both the Scriptures and the today's world.

The book offers some suggestions on how to go about preparing a sermon and calls for preaching delivered with sincerity, earnestness, courage and humility.

John Stott’s thoughtful and practical advice given at some length in I Believe in Preaching has here been abridged by eliminating quotations and examples that spoke more directly to readers in the UK and the US in the 1980s. Greg Scharf has retained the core of the original book but made it more accessible to contemporary readers.

Wright, Christopher J. H. Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament. 2nd ed. Carlisle: Langham Preaching Resources, 2014. pgs. 256. ISBN 9781907713996.

We cannot know Jesus without knowing his story.

And that story began long before Jesus was born in Bethlehem. The Gospels tell us clearly that Jesus himself, along with his earliest followers, understood who he was and what he came to do in the light of the story of Israel as told in the pages of the Old Testament. Like them, we too will find that our own understanding of both Jesus and the Old Testament is transformed as we see each in the light of the other.

Engaging with the Scriptures, Christopher J. H. Wright uncovers Jesus’ self- understanding as Son of Man and Son of God, following the path and fulfilling the call that God had placed before Israel. Through this we discover that the deeper we go into understanding the Old Testament, the closer we come to the heart of Jesus. In this revised and updated second edition Wright digs deeper into the Old Testament revealing the God whom Jesus embodied. Each chapter is followed with questions and exercises, which can be used either in personal study or in group discussion.

Wright, Christopher J. H. Sweeter than Honey: Preaching the Old Testament. 2nd ed. Carlisle: Langham Preaching Resources, 2015. pgs. 276. ISBN 9781783689347.

Many preachers ignore preaching from the Old Testament because they feel it is outdated in light of the New Testament and difficult to expound. On the other hand some preachers will preach from the Old Testament frequently but fail to ‘handle’ it correctly, turning it into moralistic rules or symbolic lessons for our spiritual life. In this book, Christopher J. H. Wright proclaims that preachers must not ignore the Old Testament. It is the Word of God! The Old Testament lays the foundation for our faith and it was the Bible that Jesus read and used.

Looking first at why we should preach from the Old Testament, the author moves on to show the reader how they can preach from it. Covering the History, Law, Prophets, Psalms and Wisdom Literature, interspersed with practical checklists, exercises and sermons, the reader is provided with an essential guide on how to handle from the Old Testament correctly.
