Baptist Preaching comprises thirty-five sermons from around the globe given in the same year by Baptist preachers. These sermons demonstrate, as Joel C. Gregory argues, that the act of preaching lies at the heart of Baptist identity—possibly rivaling the practice of believers’ baptism. The sermons collected here represent varied voices, multicultural contexts, and global concerns that occupy Baptists worldwide. The sermons thus give living witness to how Baptists wrestle with cultural issues confronting their respective churches. From Latin and South America to Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe, Baptist Preaching celebrates the diversity of global Baptist proclamation while simultaneously highlighting the near-sacramental role of preaching in Baptist churches.

"The attention to detail, the global perspectives, and Dr. Gregory’s own breadth of scholarship separate Baptist Preaching from other similar resource books on the subject. Indeed, it would be hard to find another book about  preaching that is similar to this. Baptist Preaching is an exceptional contribution to the subject, but also to our understanding of and appreciation for the depth of insight, biblical precision, and passion that today’s Baptist preachers throughout the world display."

—Tony Cupit, Pastor, McLean Baptist Church, and Former Deputy General Secretary, Baptist World Alliance

A gold mine of the highest caliber on representative preaching among Baptists worldwide. Baptist Preaching has the potential to enhance preaching in congregational life throughout the world.”

—Rev. George Bullard, General Secretary, North American Baptist Fellowship of the Baptist World Alliance

“How beautiful are the feet...! This anthology connects local with global preaching by Baptist proclaimers, thus anticipating the day when every nation, tribe, people, and language will worship at the feet of the One who transcends culture. Baptist preachers featured here from the global village are unique in their preaching style but maintain the centrality of the substance of the gospel message—Jesus the Christ.”

—Robert Smith, Jr., Professor of Preaching, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University

Joel C. Gregory is Professor of Preaching at George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University.
