HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT
PREACHING IN THE NEW CREATION:
THE PROMISE OF NEW TESTAMENT APOCALYPTIC TEXTS

"Quite simply the best book on preaching apocalyptic texts you can buy - and you should! Smart scholarship, wit, and a fine concern for the exciting good news of the gospel. David Schnasa Jacobsen has written a super book."

-David Buttrick
Drucilla Moore Buffington Professor of Homiletics and Liturgics
The Divinity School, Vanderbilt University



"We live in apocalyptic times. Among our people, there is a sense that an age is ending, a new one is breaking forth. We preachers need all the help we can get in interpreting the signs of the times. Jacobsen's book is a great contribution to the pastoral task of helping our people face the future faithfully."

-William H. Willimon
Dean of the Chapel
Duke University

 

"David Jacobsen provides a marvelous road map for preaching apocalyptic texts. Written with clarity and energy, Jacobsen provides fascinating historical background on apocalypticism, eye-opening exegetical insights into apocalyptic passages, sophisticated theological analysis, imaginative homiletical guidance, and sample sermons. The title says it best: this volume will help you preach the new creation. Indeed, the preacher who takes Jacobsen's advice will help speak God's new world into existence."

-Ronald J. Allen
Professor of Preaching and New Testament
Christian Theological Seminary
