But foundational or not, it can be difficult for preachers to pin down useful resources for narrative texts within the Old Testament, much less to skillfully preach those passages to their congregations. Benjamin Walton provides the practical insight pastors need. In one volume, he demonstrates both the interpretive and homi- letical skills necessary to preach Old Testament narratives well. Walton guides the preacher through selecting a text which is a complete unit of thought; describing the scene in a coherent way; determining the theological message of the text; and carefully crafting a meaningful take-home truth. He doesn’t stop with dis- covering the core message—the majority of the book focuses on delivering the message drawn from these narrative texts. Walton’s approach is not just theoretical. It has been read and tested anonymously by groups of pastors, and their feedback has been incorporated into the book. This valuable resource will help preachers put all the pieces together, have confidence in what they’re imparting, and maximize their preaching potential for Old Testament narratives. Benjamin H. Walton (DMin, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) is president of PreachingWorks, an organization ded- icated to helping pastors maximize their preaching potential. A former pastor, Ben has taught at several schools including Grand Canyon University, Arizona Christian University, and Talbot School of Theology. | 24 | MINISTRY ISBN 978-0-8254-4258-2 9 7 8 0 8 2 5 4 4 2 5 8 2 Preaching Old Testament Narratives Benjamin H.
