Product Description

The longer we preach, the more we realize how radical are the words of Jesus, how shocking they often are even to Christians, and how alien they are to our Western culture. In this book veteran pastor Steve Mathewson gives proven wisdom from decades of preaching through the Gospels on how to explain the harsh words of Jesus: his teachings on tough topics like sex and marriage and divorce, hell, the End Times, and much more. In all, this book gives sound, proven advice that will enable preachers to look forward to preaching from the Gospels.
