A fusion of biblical hermeneutics and homiletics, this thorough and well-researched book offers a holistic contemporary approach to the interpretation and preaching of biblical texts, using all the scholarly tools available and focusing especially on literary features. Greidanus develops hermeneutical and homiletical principles and then applies them to four specific genres: Hebrew narratives, prophetic literature, the Gospels, and the Epistles.
"Preachers seeking a solid and helpful consideration of hermeneutics in service of preaching will greet The Modern Preacher and the Ancient Text with great enthusiasm. Sidney Greidanus has produced one of those rare volumes which should be read by all preachers who take the task of interpretation and proclamation with great seriousness."
"For students who desire to see how their theological studies can come together at the point of preaching or for pastors who feel the need for an update on the biblical, hermeneutical, and homiletical currents of our day, this volume is enlightening and useful."
