To communicate Godbs Word effectively in the twenty-first century, you need to know how to connect with and confront an audience of postmodern listeners. With this book, youbll learn how to change your style of preaching without compromising the substance, take advantage of new opportunities provided by the cultural shift, and show an inattentive society the relevance of Godbs truth. "The world has gone through a major shift in thinking and communication into a postmodern mode, yet much preaching is still bpre-modernb and very out of touch. Graham Johnston has made a significant contribution in his book, showing how preaching can be thoroughly biblical, opening up the text of the Bible but also concerned with the openings in the minds of contemporary people." Leighton Ford, president, Leighton Ford Ministries "Communicating Godbs Word is more than just speaking the truth; itbs being heard and understood as well. This book is designed to help Christian leaders better understand their listeners, so they can communicate biblical truths with effectiveness and clarity." Josh McDowell, author of Evidence That Demands a Verdict "Graham Johnston describes the water in which we exist. . . . Better still, he provides some workable leads on how to communicate the life-giving Word to men and women swimming in the currents of the twenty-first century." Haddon W. Robinson, author of Biblical Preaching "Johnston not only brings a shrewd analysis of the present changes in our culture, he also contributes from the perspective of a skilled practitioner. Such a combination is both rare and valuable." Martin Robinson, director of mission and theology, British and Foreign Bible Society "For anyone desiringa ministry of impact in todaybs postmodern society, Graham Johnston has provided an understandable and useful focus." Howard G. Hendricks, chairman, Center for Christian Leadership, Dallas Theological Seminary

Simon Moetara on
While the world has undergone a major cultural shift (often termed 'postmodernism'), our preaching has often remained rooted in the ways of the older, modern period. Johnstone provides great help and insight for those who wish to preach the ancient message of Scripture to a contemporary, post-modern audience. I have found this book of immense help in my own preaching and in the homiletics class I teach.
