Preaching Gospel

Charles L. Campbell

Teaching preaching, like preaching itself, is a noble endeavor. After nearly four decades of teaching, Richard Lischer has sent legions of preachers across the world to preach gospel. This volume pays tribute to his faith-filled life of preaching and teaching. The contributors, some of whom were taught by Lischer, have received many laurels themselves, so readers will find in these pages wisdom for preaching from many quarters. Some authors include sermons with helpful commentary about the preaching exercise; some offer essays to illuminate the task of sermon writing; all acknowledge the influence of Richard Lischer on their preaching and teaching endeavors.

Praise for this book

This fascinating book is so much more than an academic tribute to a retiring professor, although Rick Lischer certainly deserves that as one of our premier theologians of homiletics. This is a collection of some of the finest essays I've seen about the weight and high calling to proclaim gospel, and it has been written by some of the best scholars on the subject we have.
