From Pastor Randy Mauney come two inspiring and thoughtful books for any reader interested in biblical study.
Experience a different type of preaching through word pictures and object lessons. The Pictorial Preaching of the Prophet Jeremiah starts with three introductory chapters building a premise for the thirteen messages Jeremiah preaches using word pictures.
This book also doubles as a commentary of the book of Jeremiah. Each word picture is explained, and application is made to present-day America and how Jeremiah’s message, the Word of God, can help both Christians and non-Christians alike. It reveals obvious similarities between Judah in history and America today.
In the second book, the author introduces Leah, Abraham, the wise men, and the young children that cried in the temple to Jesus saying “Hosanna” to the son of David. Observe how each one praised and worshipped God. May we will also learn how and why we praise and worship our Lord and Savior.
Praise and Worship: A Biblical Etymology is designed to research the first time that the words praise and worship are used in both the Old and New Testaments, so we learn the context as well as the purpose of praise and worship. By looking at both the Hebrew (Old Testament) and Greek (New Testament) languages, we will gain a working definition and knowledge of how to praise and worship God. Educational and instructive, this is for all believers who want a deeper relationship with Christ.
Praise and Worship: A Biblical Etymology
Praise and Worship: A Biblical Etymology illuminates the heart and mind to the meaning of genuine praise and worship. By studying the context of the words, praise and worship, from the Old and New Testaments, the author clearly defines what God prescribes as praise and worship. Today’s church displays an interest and desire to praise and worship Jesus Christ. However, is the church approaching God through biblical praise and biblical worship?
The author researches and identifies the meaning of praise and worship through biblical accounts. Each scripture clearly defines the actions that must be taken for praise and worship to be offered to our Lord Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament, worship is displayed through the actions of Abraham as he and Isaac made their way up the mountain to worship the Lord. Leah’s life is considered as well while she demonstrates praise at the birth of her son, Levi.
In addition, the New Testament offers more illuminating definitions for praise and worship. Worship is explored by examining the Magi’s journey to worship the newborn child, Jesus Christ. Praise is further studied as the reader takes a look at the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem when the young ones praise Him for the good deeds He had been performing.
Lastly, Praise and Worship: A Biblical Etymology provides pictorial accounts and illustrations of praise and worship to deepen the readers’ knowledge and understanding of true, biblical praise and worship. This book instructs readers to immediately implement biblical praise and worship into their lives.
The Pictorial Preaching of the Prophet Jeremiah
God gifted Jeremiah and equipped him to be a prophet to the nations, and he preached to reach the heart of God’s people from between 627 BC until after the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC. In The Pictorial Preaching of the Prophet Jeremiah, author Dr. Randy A. Mauney captures the essence of Jeremiah’s life and purpose and shows how he remained faithful to God, even through tough times.
The Pictorial Preaching of the Prophet Jeremiah discusses thirteen of the word picture and object lesson messages Jeremiah used to convey his teachings. It provides insight into the history of such stories as the search for righteous man, the sermon at the gate, the summon of the women, the soiled girdle, and the staggering drunk and smashed wineskins. Mauney applies the lessons to present-day America and shows how Jeremiah’s message, the Word of God, can help both Christians and non-Christians.
Doubling as a commentary of the book of Jeremiah, The Pictorial Preaching of the Prophet Jeremiah shows the true purpose of the ministry of Jeremiah to the nation of Judah. It discusses the similarities between Judah in history and America in the present and provides a refreshing view of the Old Testament prophets and how God uses preachers and pastors today.
