In this book Edmund Clowney explains his reasons for this conviction and gives practical guidance for preachers who share it.

The rest of the book is a collection of Clowney's own sermons that exemplify the preaching of Chirst in all of Scripture. For experienced preachers who want to hone their preaching focus on Christ, this book offers guidance on how to do that. For aspiring preachers, Clowney's example is a model of faithful Christian preaching.

This is indeed a landmark book. This book is not just for preachers--every Christian must read it. If you want to understand the Bible and how God, "in these last day has spoken to us in His Son," Jesus Christ, you must read this book. Goldsworthy is correct when he asserts that in Preaching the Old Testament you must preach Christ. There is no Christian preaching of the Old Testament apart from correctly relating the message back to the revelation of Christ's redemptive work in history and the Old Testaments explanation to the redeeming work of God in Christ Jesus.
