Dr. Jeffrey Arthurs’ Book, “Preaching as Reminding” receives Book of the Year Award in the area of The Church/Pastoral Leadership from Christianity Today

 

Christianity Today awards Gordon-Conwell Professor of Preaching and Communication, Dr. Jeffrey Arthurs, 2019 Book of the Year in the area of Church/Pastor Leadership for his book, Preaching as Reminding.

“This book just became required reading for any young pastor I have the privilege of ministering to in the future. Thankfully, the evangelical church over the past half-century has emphasized the need for expositional preaching. Yet much of what passes as expositional preaching today lacks impact. It tends to feel more like a running commentary on the text, rather than preaching. Arthurs underscores the importance of remembering in preaching. He provides a helpful biblical theology of the role of memory, cites modern science’s help in this area, and then applies the knowledge to the discipline of preaching. This book is engaging, informative, and lively—just like our preaching should be.” —Jason Helopoulos, senior pastor of University Reformed Church in East Lansing, Michigan, author of The New Pastor’s Handbook

The Gordon-Conwell Community extends our congratulations and gratitude to Dr. Arthurs for this vital book.
