Preaching Christ in a Postmodern World
by Dr. Tim Keller and Dr. Edmund Clowney
Originally taught as a Doctor of Ministry course, Dr. Keller and Dr. Clowney (1917-2005) ask, “Is Jesus made visible in every sermon or only talked about?” By analyzing and deconstructing other models of preaching that either exhort on moral levels or attempt to evoke an emotional response, Dr.’s Keller and Clowney provide a model of preaching that is Christocentric. This model of preaching focuses on three aspects to guide the listener and preacher:
- First, how does this text tell me about Christ?
- Second, how does this text show that the listener’s life is poor without Christ.
- Third, how to lead the listener to worship and adore Christ.

The notes are NOT available anywhere else….so I offered up both years as they were expanded.
The 36 hour class is College Level and includes 18 hours of Lectures and 18 hours of Question/Answers.
God called me late in life, ill prepared and unqualified to even consider college/seminary but with a zeal to teach. There are wonderful resources available on the internet to prepare and equip men whom God has called.
I share this class with the hope that others like me can benefit from these lessons and be more effective in sharing the Gospel. Whether you teach a small group or serve as volunteer chaplain – properly exalting Yeshua in your teaching glorifies Him.
This class has shown me ways to do that.
He said Ps 40 v 7 the volume of the book is written of me….and finding Him and lifting Him up allows Him to draw all people to Him.
Lu 24:27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. Lu 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
