Parental Guidance Advised

Adult Preaching from the Old Testament
  • By Charles Aaron

$19.99

We all learn the Old Testament Bible stories as children, the stories stripped of their complexity. But as adults, we need to be reminded of the entire stories—the stories of our pasts—and to be reminded of who we are in God’s plan.
Parental Guidance Advised shows the Old Testament to be a creative, humorous, insightful, bawdy, dynamic, and enriching collection of sacred literature hammered out over centuries of wrestling with the divine-human relationship. It depicts the Old Testament not as a series of scenes of saints in action but rather as real-life stories of sinners, who somehow, despite themselves, become protagonists in God’s plot of salvation. Inspired by the ministry of Dr. John C. Holbert, who has spent his career opening the eyes of the church to the wonders of the Old Testament, Parental Guidance Advised: Adult Preaching from the Old Testament gives sermon listeners exactly what they deserve: profound and provocative sermons that honor the depth and complexity of both Bible and everyday life. Each chapter includes a brief essay on its topic, followed by suggested texts for preaching. The book covers all three years of the lectionary cycle.
