faithfulness to Scripture is the solution to a crisis within African American preaching. Though misinterpreting God’s Word is not restricted to one race or culture, author Aaron E. Lavender identifies three factors that have precipitated the decline of black preaching specifically: racial segregation, black liberation theology, and prosperity theology.
This book covers the history of the current crisis, the role of biblical exegesis in preaching, a theology of preaching, and preaching methods for the postmodern world.
While focused on the African American context, this volume addresses topics relevant to all preachers. Enduring Truth is suited both for ministry practitioners and preaching courses. It equips reads to elevate the Word of God over the worldly allures of any ministry setting.
AARON E. LAVENDER is vice president , director of seminary studies, and professor of pastoral ministries at Caver Baptist Bible College, Institute, and Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri. He also serves as the senior pastor of Grace Baptist Church since 1986.
