About-

The foundation of a good biblical sermon is the biblical text. Take Up and Preach is a helpful guide for the preacher in how to approach a biblical text with the intention of preaching its life-giving message. Blayne Banting uses memorable images and careful instructions to aid the preacher through the process of understanding a theology of preaching, selecting and interpreting a preaching text right up to the point of producing the sermon outline. Take Up and Preach both grounds and guides the preacher in a sound method for biblical preaching, and does so with a number of practical helps to aid in the process.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Having sat under Blayne Banting's faithful preaching and teaching, I testify that Take Up and Preach represents the work not only of a qualified academic, but a practiced pastor. His 'Bridge' metaphor helps aspiring and experienced preachers alike to keep both biblical and contemporary contexts firmly in mind while preparing a sermon. I hope copies of this book will become dog-eared with use and find their place of honor in many pastors' libraries."
--David Guretzki, Professor of Theology, Church & Public Life, Briercrest College and Seminary

"Take Up and Preach offers preachers a practical, repeatable process to ground their sermons in the biblical text, bridge that text to contemporary listeners and circumstances, and to do so in a manner that honors the intent, literary form, and flow of the text. Dr. Banting has offered the field of homiletics a helpful tool that will extend the ministry of biblical preaching into the next generation."
--Daniel Overdorf, Dean of the School of Congregational Ministry and Professor of Preaching, Johnson University
