New Testament scholar David may and preaching professor Mike Graves combine to bring readers the "what" and the "how of preaching the book of Matthew in what they call a "socio-rhetorical homiletic." The "what" refers to the interpretive work necessary for sermon preparation, while the "how" discussed the homiletical issues the various text-segements raise. Includes sample lessons.
"In this helpful book,. homiletical Mike Graves and New Testament scholar David May prove to be stimulating guides for the task of preaching Matthew. Engaging the interpretive work necessary for sermon preparation (the what?) and the homiletical issues that the various text-segements raise (the how?), they offer insight. pose questions, articulate challenges, identify resources, and provide imaginative engagement with these text."
