Famine In The Land- Steven J. Lawson
Is your congregation starving?
There’s a spiritual famine in the land—a shortage of faithful preaching leaving those in the pews dangerously undernourished.
We need people today who will preach like the prophets and apostles did, proclaiming the word of God with courage and conviction. Famine in the Land, a compilation and adaptation of four powerful journal articles by Steven Lawson, makes a biblically-grounded argument for the desperate importance of expository preaching.
Whether you preach to 3,000 or 30 this book will embolden you to:
- revere the glorious, painful, historical call of preaching
- dig deep in your study of God’s word
- speak and live with uncompromising conviction
This is an indispensable resource for any church leader who wants to see lives changed through preaching.
Steven Lawson understands how important it is to feed God’s people from His Word. He is concerned that what started as a genuine attempt to attract a broader hearing by moving away from Scripture, has grown into a crisis in the church. He is convinced that we must return to expository preaching, “the man of God opening the Word of God and expounding its truths so that the voice of God may be heard, the glory of God seen, and the will of God obeyed.” Lawson calls the church back to Scripture, to restore its commitment to let God’s own words speak.
