Preaching the New Testament Again
Faith, Freedom, and Transformation
Imprint: Cascade Books
“It is liberating and refreshing to see Professor Kim emphasize themes such as freedom and transformation which by extension broaden our understanding of faith and salvation. There is an implicit correlation between understanding who Jesus is and preaching the gospel and Dr Kim makes that clear . . . Excellent for experienced pastors, teachers, and ministry students of all persuasions.”
—James Henry Harris, Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology
“Yung Suk Kim offers a compelling interpretation of New Testament texts that gets to the heart of their message. His close attention to the distinctive theological voices of New Testament writings will make even familiar passages seem fresh. Preaching the New Testament Again can reenergize preachers by renewing their understanding of Christian faith, freedom, and transformation.”
—Susan Hylen, Emory University
"Yung Suk Kim possesses one of the most original, refreshing, and urgent voices in New Testament Theology today. Kim’s new book on preaching addresses the most important questions for Christians in the twenty-first century: How can we believe again? What can set us free? How can we live authentically? Kim’s understanding of ‘faith’ gives substance to Bonhoeffer’s dictum, ‘Only the one who obeys believes.’ Kim powerfully expounds the freedom that comes from sharing Jesus’ primal confidence in God. With Kim’s new book in hand, preachers will recover the New Testament as the essential resource for life-changing proclamation."
—Laurence L. Welborn, Fordham University
"Yung Suk Kim has done it again! After writing seminal works in Pauline studies, biblical hermeneutics, and Bible study, he now turns his attention to homiletics. . . Those who preach—and those who teach preachers—have been given a gift in this work."
—Michael Willett Newheart, Howard University School of Divinity
