Chad Van Dixhoorn has done us a service with this new book. It offers refreshing insights into 17th Century history and on preaching. This is a great book, most especially for preachers. Any preacher "worth his salt" will constantly be working to improve his exegesis, his communication, his explanations and pastoral helps for the flock of God.
What is to be the overall theme of preaching? It is the knowledge of God. Listen to the words of wisdom in Proverbs 2:1-5. This book will help those called of God to better communicate the Triune God through Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world.
"My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God".
I warmly commend this book and its author.
