Preaching the Gospel from the Gospels
G.R. Beasley Murray was a significant figure in British biblical scholarship and so I am delighted to be able to digtise and host many of his books and articles, which are all still in copyright. This is possible through the kind permission of his son, the Rev Dr. Paul Beasley-Murray. A bibliography of the works of G.R. Beasley-Murray, with links, can be accessed here. The latest book to be uploaded is Preaching the Gospels. from the Gospels.
Orignally published in 1956, it was revised in 1996 and is now out of print. The back-cover reads in part:
The author of standard scholarly studies of baptism and eschatology in the NT here offers a comprehensive elucidation of themes for preaching from the Gospels. Beasley-Murray first speels out the homiletical significance of the manner in which the Gospels came to be written down.Subsequent chapters mine the life, miracles, teaching, and parables of Jesus for preachable material. This survey will be useful not only for preachers but for anyone interested in integrating Gospel studies with practical theology.
