Are you interested in going deeper in missional preaching? At the ‘A Missional Reading of Scripture Conference’, Calvin Seminary, Grand Rapids, Nov. 2013, I presented a workshop, ‘Church for the Thriving of the World: Preaching Deuteronomy Missionally.’ This included outlining an eight week sermon series on Deuteronomy titled: ‘Radical Gratitude and the Mission of God.’ If you are a preacher you may be interested in preaching through Deuteronomy missionally.
The book of Deuteronomy mobilizes the church in 2014 to live with gratitude in response to God’s gifts and with generosity for the sake of the world. Reading the Bible missionally includes attending to Biblical ethics and also seeing how these biblical ethics are embedded in theology to shape a display people before the world.
A detailed description of the sermon series is available on this website. It will also be helpful to listen to the audio in preparation for preaching through Deuteronomy (there is a jazz piano performance of Amazing grace a little after the 40 minute mark). I hope you find this material helpful in mobilising your community into the mission of Christ.
