The goal of preaching is to let the powerful message of the Bible penetrate the lives of your congregation. A well-crafted sermon can help to bridge the gap between biblical context and contemporary application. In Excellent Preaching, Craig Bartholomew explains why we need to be acquainted with both the context of Scripture and the context in which we preach. Good contextualization is hard work, but Bartholomew shows that it can be done. Practical, accessible, and rooted in years of preaching experience, this short book helps preachers connect the message of the text to everyday life.

Review quote

Bartholomew's thoughts on preaching should be read by every preacher. Our congregation is richly blessed when he opens God's word to us. His singular focus on the glory of Christ in all of scripture has been inspiring to me in our friendship and partnership in preaching the gospel. This book challenges us to take our task seriously, offering practical guidance and instruction for every preacher from the recently ordained and to the seasoned pastor.
--The Rev R.D. Glenn, Rector (Senior Pastor) St. George's Anglican Church, Burlington
