The Supremacy of God in Preaching

According to Warren Wiersbe, The Supremacy of God in Preaching “calls us back to a biblical standard for preaching, a standard exemplified by many of the pulpit giants of the past, especially Jonathan Edwards and Charles Spurgeon.” This newly revised and expanded edition is an essential guide for preachers who want to stir the embers of revival.

People are starving for the greatness of God. Where will their souls be fed? Can they say, “I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory”? As we look out over the wasteland of a secular society, do we not ask, “Who but Christian preachers will say to the people, ‘Behold your God!’?” Who will paint for them the landscape of God’s grandeur? Who will remind them with tales of wonder that God has triumphed over every foe? Who will cry out above every crisis, “Your God reigns!”?

John Piper pleads for preachers to make the supremacy of God the bracing air of their sermons. He longs to see a new generation of preachers, and a revived band of seasoned brothers set aflame with the grandeur of God—his glory as the goal of preaching, his cross as the ground of preaching, his Spirit as the power of preaching.
