Will It Preach?

Bible Study Magazine NovemberHow do you preach on that imprecatory psalm? What do you do with that seemingly bizarre vision in Ezekiel? And where do even begin with the book of Nahum—easily the most unpopular book of the Bible?

If you’ve been asked or done the asking, you know that these passages present special challenges for the preacher. It can be tempting to avoid or at least gloss over them. In the November–December ’13 issue of Bible Study Magazine, we address the passages least likely to see a pulpit. From the violence of the Minor Prophets to the strange visions of Ezekiel to the tedium of the genealogies, we ask “Will It Preach?” and “How?”

Here’s what else the issue offers:

  • An interview with David Platt on discipleship and an active church culture in “No More Spectators.”
  • A response to the ongoing conflict in Egypt. Tharwat Wahba, professor and chair of missions at Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo, explains how Egyptian Christians are responding to violence and offers hope.
  • Insights from June Hunt on studying the Bible and counseling others.

You’ll also get the latest book reviews, an eight-week Bible study on Ephesians, and more!
