Understanding the Gospels
A Guide for Preaching and Teaching
Understanding the Gospels first introduces the Gospels generally and then prepares readers to communicate their message to a modern audience. Each of the fourteen contributors is a seminary professor and expert on the topic covered.
This book focuses on preaching and application, and answers pointed questions to help students and pastors understand the major theological themes of each gospel and avoid common interpretive mistakes.
Anyone serving in a teaching or preaching capacity will find this book helpful for accurate proclamation and powerful application of the Gospels.
