This accessible resource offers an insider's view on figuring out the big idea of each book of the Bible, helping preachers and teachers check their interpretation of particular biblical books and passages. The contributors offer tips on how to divide each book of the Bible into preaching and teaching passages, guidance on difficult passages and verses, cultural perspectives for faithful application, and suggested resources for interpreting, preaching, and teaching. Pastors, teachers, Bible study leaders, small groups, and college and seminary students and professors will find a wealth of valuable information in this resource.
“Expository preachers begin at the very beginning (a very good place to start). They ask, ‘What is God saying and doing in the text?’ This reference work helps us answer questions like this with the methodology formulated more than forty years ago by Haddon Robinson. And it goes beyond Robinson’s classic Biblical Preaching with an emphasis on cultural application. Timeless yet up to date, The Big Idea Companion for Preaching and Teaching will benefit anyone who desires to herald the Word.”—Jeffrey Arthurs, professor of preaching and communication, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
