about

From the forward:
Among the significant contributions which a graduate theological seminary can make to the constituency of the institution in particular and to the religious world in general is the production of serious religious literature. With this volume, Nazarene Theological Seminary inaugurates such a project in cooperation with the Nazarene Publishing House.

While this book is to be the first of a series of volumes on preaching, it is the plan of the administration of the Seminary that through the years to come, every major field of the Christian religion will be represented in Seminary publications.

We begin this phase of our work with the earnest prayer that this, and every successive book published by this institution shall serve to spread “the glorious gospel of Christ,” and bring honor to the name of Him, “whose we are and whom we serve.”

 

From the introduction:
The Church of the Nazarene is committed to an aggressive evangelistic ministry. We consider the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ to be of the highest importance in bringing men and women to a saving knowledge of Christ. It is our conviction that no other activity can adequately take the place of effective, scriptural, spiritual preaching.

It is therefore fitting that the first volume officially published under the auspices of Nazarene Theological Seminary should be a book on preaching. It is just as fitting that this publication should come from the pen of the Rev. J. B. Chapman, D.D., Chairman of the Board of General Superintendents of the Church of the Nazarene, not only because his ministry by the spoken and written word has blessed multitudes of people, but as well, because he, as no other individual, has been responsible for the establishment and successful continuation of this Seminary.

The material herein published was prepared by Dr. Chapman for the Miller Lectures on Preaching, provided for the Seminary through the generosity of the Rev. Basil Miller, Ph.D., widely known author and minister of Pasadena, California. From his nearly fifty years of broad and rich experience as preacher, educator, editor and church administrator, Dr. Chapman has portrayed his conception of “The Preaching Ministry.” We bespeak for this book a wide reading, not only among the preachers of our own group, but among all who would more effectively “preach the Word.”

We wish to express the sincere appreciation of the Seminary administration to the Nazarene Publishing House for the cooperation of that institution in making possible this and future publications of the Seminary.
