BIB 7042 - Preaching Joshua, Judges, and Ruth

Credits: 3

In this course you will construct and preach sermons from the Old Testament books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth, also known as the “Commonwealth Books.” You will give attention to the place of these books in the total flow of Old Testament redemptive history, to principles for interpreting and applying narrative Scripture, and to strategies that will enable you to preach sermons that have a transformational impact on listeners of all ages. You will balance aspects of sermon construction, homiletical theory, use of illustrations and story-telling, effective application of truth, audience analysis, and the philosophy and theology of preaching with the importance of being an authentic servant of God.
