Pastoral Theology, Volume 2

Posted by on

Pastoral Theology, The Man of God, Volume 2: His Preaching & Teaching Labors
by Albert N. Martin

Among the manifold responsibilities and privileges of being a scripturally-recognized elder in Christ’s church who is set apart to “labor in preaching and teaching”(1 Tim. 5:17), no function in that office is of greater importance than that of the preaching and teaching labors of the man of God.  

This book begins with the articulation of seven basic axioms that apply to every species of biblical preaching and teaching, and moves forward to identify the three basic categories of legitimate sermons. Then a working framework for the actual construction of sermons, including introductions and conclusions, is set before us. The concluding section focuses on the “Act of Preaching” itself. In these chapters, such things as the place of emotions, physical action, the use of vocal powers, and the benefits and liabilities of a sermon manuscript are thoroughly discussed.

The author sets a treatment of these various subjects that is drawn primarily from the contents of the Bible, the insights of general revelation, and the confirming voice of proven guides from past generations.

About the Author
Albert N. Martin was one of the founding pastors of Trinity Baptist Church in Montville, NJ, where he labored for 46 years. Pastor Martin faithfully expounded the scriptures with a Christ-exalting focus and with passionate, penetrating, and pointed application at Trinity as well as at its annual pastors’ conferences. His ministry was also sought in churches and conferences throughout the States and around the world. In June 2008, he retired from his pastoral labors and relocated to Michigan with his wife, Dorothy, where he now resides while continuing his labors of counseling, writing, and preaching.
