Best-selling author, veteran pastor and professor, and now president of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, Rev. Dr. Marvin McMickle returns to his passion for preaching in this new book, which explores the Great Commission as recorded in Acts 1:6-8, “Be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Be My Witness offers a unique approach to the preaching task and suggests a way for preachers today to declare the gospel with relevance to the many issues and challenges society faces. McMickle explores the implications of what it means to be a witness for Jesus and considers a three-fold understanding of the word witness:
Suggesting this passage be heard by preachers as a combination ordination charge, pastoral installation message, and seminary commencement address, McMickle develops a twenty-first century theology of preaching that encompasses both content and context for delivering the gospel message. Specifically, he explores the preacher’s need to wait for the Spirit’s power, to be Christ’s witness in the world, and to widen the scope of ministry-to the ends of the earth.
Provides an exegetical examination of Jesus’ words in Acts 1:6-8
Promotes sermon content that is faithful and attentive to justice, and the people and problems within a minister’s particular local church and community
