Christianity Today 2019 Book of the Year Award, The Church/Pastoral Leadership
We know of the preacher’s roles as both teacher and proclaimer, but Jeffrey Arthurs adds another assignment: the Lord’s remembrancer. The remembrancer stirs the memory of Christ-followers, reminding them of the truths they once heard and fanning the flames of faith. We live in an age of forgetfulness, so when knowledge fades and conviction cools, the church needs to be reminded of the great truths of the faith. When done well, preaching as reminding is not empty, perfunctory repetition. Rather, it is the work of soul-watchers. Preaching as Reminding describes the dynamic role of the remembrancer, who prompts thankfulness and repentance, raises hope, fosters humility and wisdom, exhorts obedience, and encourages community. With decades of preaching experience, Arthurs explains how to stir memory through vivid language, story, delivery, and ceremony. He urges preachers to take up this task with buoyancy and hope because the Lord God has commissioned and equipped them to serve as the Lord’s remembrancers.

The story of Christianity is a fascinating tale. Here we find drama, vision, and expansion along with failure, setbacks, and tragedy. Yet during the past two thousand years, the power of Jesus is felt throughout the interplay of human actors and the forces of world events.
How can you grasp the story played out on such a gigantic stage? This book is an ideal place to start. D. Jeffrey Bingham has skillfully selected the key people and episodes to tell a grand and humbling story. From Roman persecution to the early creeds, from the monastic movement to the Reformation, from the rise of liberalism to missionary expansion, he chronicles the ups and downs of a people and a faith.
This pocket history has been crafted for students, pastors, and other busy people who want an informed, clear, and concise presentation that feeds the mind and moves the heart. It is an account that nurtures the Christian virtues of faith, hope, and love. Bingham aims not only to uncover the treasures of the church’s past but also to show how history aids your own spiritual journey today.
