About-

Faithful biblical sermons not only attempt to capture what the biblical text says, but also what the text is trying to do. Biblical sermons will take direction from both the content and the intent of the biblical text. In Taken Up and Preached, Blayne Banting supplies examples of sermons from his own preaching ministry to illustrate the Homiletical Bridge methodology he developed in his previous book Take Up and Preach: A Primer for Interpreting Preaching Texts (2016).

Endorsements & Reviews-

Taken Up and Preached offers example after example of biblically faithful, culturally relevant sermons, following Blayne Banting's method of sermon preparation that extends both the truth and the purpose of the text. In these pages, pastors and students will find ideas, inspiration, and models of preaching that will deepen and enliven their ministries.”

—Daniel Overdorf, Director of Preaching Programs, Johnson University, author of Applying the Sermon and One Year to Better Preaching



“Teachers of preachers aren’t always model preachers themselves. However, this book shows that sometimes homileticians can truly preach what they (tell us to) practice. I commend both this and Banting’s previous book, Take Up and Preach, not only because I am familiar with his preaching theory, but because I was privileged to hear God’s voice through these moving (and often humorous!) sermons preached under his ministry as one of his congregants.”

—David Guretzki, Executive Vice President and Resident Theologian, The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada



“This book of sermons, which illustrate and reflect the methods of his primer on sermon preparation, is sure to faithfully represent what he's been advocating. His faithfulness in life will be present in his faithfulness to text and sermon. You can take in these sermons with confidence that they will help you more effectively take up and preach.”

—Chuck Sackett, Professor of Preaching, Lincoln Christian University
